QS/1's Keys to Security: Internal Security

Advanced Security

Protect inventory, finances and prescription records by tracking when employees make changes. Monitor changes to cash or inventory levels and prescription records and record when changes occur and who makes them. Advanced Security monitors and records changes to the following records: Patient, Patient Insurance, Prescriber, Drug, Prescription, Transaction and Inventory.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a method of computer access control in which a user is granted access only after successfully presenting several separate pieces of evidence to an authentication. Our applications offer two methods for multi-factor authentication.

  • Biometric - QS/1 software can be configured to require a user name and password along with biometric (fingerprint) input. Fingerprints are recorded and saved within the QS/1 application’s security file to provide additional sign-on verification for increased security.
  • Active Directory LDAP module - QS/1 software is configurable with integration through an LDAP query that prompts users to enter Active Directory credentials when accessing the QS/1 Windows Client. If credentials pass authentication, the QS/1 client connection proceeds with login to the QS/1 server, which requires input of separate credentials maintained within the QS/1 application.

Social Security Number Masking

To keep protected health information (PHI) private, all QS/1 Pharmacy Management Systems and our Point-of-Sale system mask social security numbers on the Patient Record, allowing only staff with the proper security access the ability to view and edit. This feature is available in SharpRx, NRx, PrimeCare, SystemOne and Multi-Site Management.

Barcode Login

QS/1’s Point-of-Sale (POS) system allows you to assign specific barcodes for employee identification cards that can be swiped or scanned and prevent unauthorized employees from accessing the system. Our POS security also eliminates unauthorized discounts and controls access with multiple security levels. Apply limits on check cashing, voids and refunds and retain an electronic log for controlled substance pickup.
