Not only the protection of patient data, but also legally compliant data collection and documentation is Simpleprax's top priority.
Through numerous measures, we ensure that Simpleprax meets all the requirements of the European GDPR.
Medical and personal data are reliably protected by Simpleprax's security measures. The Simpleprax application is 100% GDPR-compliant.
In addition to the usual TLS encryption for communication with our servers, we rely on secure end-to-end encryption. This means that confidential patient data is already encrypted on the user's terminal device and can only be decrypted in the receiving practice. Thus, we guarantee that not even Simpleprax employees can gain access to the patient data and offer the best possible data protection for your patients.
The data is stored according to the latest encryption standards and exclusively in Germany and is therefore GDPR-compliant. The data is stored in data centers certified according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013, 27017:2015, 27018:2019 and 9001:2015.
Hosted exclusively in Germany, our server infrastructure is ISO 27001 certified, with regular backups protecting against data loss. The measures we have taken mean that we can offer a secure and practical solution for digital documents for your practice.
With the order processing contract concluded between you as the treatment provider and Simpleprax as the data processing service provider, you are always on the safe side.
Standardized formatting of the Simpleprax signature
Simpleprax can be used to sign many documents in the practice in a legally secure manner.
The electronic signature is encoded in XML format according to ISO/IEC 19794-7 and stored in the metadata of the PDF. The XML format can then be used as evidence in a court case.
What data is captured during the signature process?
In addition to the signature as an image, the date of the signature and the signature type, i.e. whether it was signed with the mouse, the finger or the Apple Pencil, each point of the signature is saved with a coordinate and time stamp. When signing with the Apple Pencil, the pressure or the tilt of the pen can also be saved.
Here, up to 62.5 data points per second are captured. This is about 2.5 times as much as the human eye can process per second. This data allows the acceleration and speed of the signature to be calculated and the signature to be reconstructed as in a video.
The PDF/A file format is defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as the standard for long-term archiving of documents. In the Simpleprax application, when a survey is completed, a document is automatically generated in PDF/A format, which enables long-term and secure archiving to fulfill retention requirements in the practice.
