Opargo Security Policy

Unique identification of users
To comply with the HIPAA requirements and to provide a high quality secure service, Opargo requires all users to have a unique username. Opargo currently requires a valid email address for Opargo’s web based healthcare optimization service.

In addition to a username, every user account must be protected with a password of sufficient complexity.

Security on the Opargo web site
Opargo service users may choose to sign into their account at the Opargo web site in order to access the downloads or account status. Such sign-ins are protected by SSL security. Your browser will usually display an indicator (such as a “lock” icon) when using a secure SSL connection.

Security in the Opargo service
All Opargo web-based healthcare optimization software applications communicate with a server hosted by Opargo or a contractor of Opargo. All communications are secured with public-key encryption.

Role-based security
Every user in the Opargo system belongs to one or more roles. A role is defined by each customer, and is assigned a set of permissions. These roles can be managed by the customer.

Application locking
In accordance with HIPAA policies, Opargo’s web-based healthcare optimization applications will automatically lock up if left unattended for a period of time. Correct credentials of the user will need to be provided prior to using the application again.

Opargo password policy
Opargo will never store any passwords in permanent storage in a way that is reversible. The Opargo healthcare optimization software will never show the password in plain-text, human-readable form.
