If you use an Asus laptop for work, you have been frustrated at least one time with the enormous multi-touch and multi-featured touch pad it features after tripping on it with your hand while typing and ended up sending some data to the wrong place (or application I should say).
You probably already have a secondary "decent" mouse plugged into it but you still having occasional unexpected clicks here and there while typing.
Here is the solution with 2 different approaches:
for THE DAILY ROUTINE:
Most Asus laptops come with a function key to disable the touchpad; if so,
STEP 1 (and only) Press and hold the FN key and then press the F3 or F9 key depending on the model.
FOR THE LONG TERM:
If your laptop is normally fixed to your desk and you always use a secondary mouse, you may want to deactivate the touchpad completely: (assuming you have administrator rights, otherwise ask your IT administrator)
1. Click Start and then Control Panel
2. Double click on "mouse" and then click the Hardware tab
3. Locate the Mouse setting and change the status to "disabled"
*. If you want to revert this setting, follow same steps but in step 3 change the status to "enabled"
If you run your own Medical Practice, chances are, you spend quite some time figuring out which EHR and EMR was convenient for you, and among the options for Cloud (hosted somewhere else) or your own server; you had decided to host it in your own server for different reasons:
But how about Security?... yes, at this point you are hating this post as HIPAA, Meaningful use and all compliance nightmares may wake u up again; but let's embrace it, You need to know about this things and review it once in a while. Think of all your patients you wish they have taken the initiative to get a routine check instead of coming to your practice half dead and expecting you to bring them to their early twenties.
As I.T. Professionals with years of experience helping Medical Practices and I.T. Security, have come across several EMR and EHR plataforms hosted on premises at Medical Practices and we are sad to tell you, they are not safe out of the box; there are many loose ends that need to be covered in your network to try to stay away from data breaches that EMR and EHR developers not even consider because is not their responsibility.
We don't intend to say you will be fully protected and not liable by following this guide, but at least we try to cover the most typical areas where most common attacks are targeted.
