New Web Browser Security Requirements

Effective September 1, 2016; New Web Browser Security Requirements

Web Browsers and Systems are Required to Support TLS 1.2

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is advising all DEA registrants of pending changes to DEA’s Office of Diversion Control websites.

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council recommend that users, including Federal agencies, upgrade their browsers and systems to software supporting Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.2 or higher. The DEA will comply with this recommendation in order to ensure protection of data transmitted through DEA-owned information technology infrastructure.

After August 31, 2016, all users are required to utilize browsers with TLS version 1.2 or higher when accessing DEA Office of Diversion Control websites. You may need to update your operating system and/or internet browser to continue to access these sites.

The largest population of users expected to be impacted by this change are users implementing unsupported versions of the Windows operating system (Vista and earlier versions) and those using Internet Explorer Version 9 or earlier. Other browsers and operating systems may be affected — check with the software manufacturer to make certain that TLS 1.2 is supported and enabled on your system.

MDS Section GG and New GG Data Collection and eForm

ADL introduces online GG collection forms and auto-fill function to support MDS Section GG. This are difficult enough for the direct care staff to document accurately and now there is a new set of definitions for the same or similar ADLs that also needed to be accurately coded. In addition, this GG Coding has different timelines for completion from the original MDS fields.

The GG data needs to be captured:

• At Start of SNF PPS stay, with an assessment period of days 1-3
• At End of SNF PPS stay upon discharge

Section GG the “Self Care” item does not have the separate coding for self-performance and support as are used to in Section G: rather the admission performance and discharge goal coding is combined with amount of assistance needed.

Accessing the GG Collection Tool needs to be integrated with the Admission and Discharge (ADT) Workflows.

EMR Single Sign-On (SSO)

ADL EMR Provides Single Sign-on for:


Healthix Regional Health Information Exchange
eMOLST MOLST instructions
Windows Supports Windows Active Directory
COMS Portal
Emdeon Patient Eligibility, Claims Management
Phicure Patient Eligibility, Claims Management

With Single Sign-On you can access another system on the Internet without having to logon to their system. Once SSO is setup the user can access the Remote system directly from the ADL EMR. When accessing Remote system the SSO login retrieves the data for the same patient that you are working on in the ADL EMR. The auto-select patient feature must be supported by the SSO Logon method.

This makes access quick and easy, avoiding having to Login and Logout of the programs multiple times.

Connect to Healthix and share valuable, real-time health information with those who jointly care for your patients.

Healthix has engineered interfaces to a broad variety of electronic health records and other clinical information systems, including interoperable integrations that support access to community-wide health information from within the EMR.

eMOLST Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment Program – Single Sign-on

MOLST is a clinical process that emphasizes discussion of the patient’s goals for care and shared medical decision-making between health care professionals and patients who are seriously ill or frail, for whom their physician may be expecting their decease within the next year. The result is a standardized set of medical orders documented on the MOLST form that reflect the patient’s preferences for life-sustaining treatment.


Windows Integrated Single Sign-On

Windows SSO enables you to access multiple applications within your network once you logon using your Windows username and password.

Using a common authentication service, the system verifies your credentials and determines the actions that you can perform based on your user rights. If Windows SSO is enabled you do not have to sign-on to the ADL software. ADL applications will use your Windows SSO as your user identification.
