System Timeouts

Recommended Posts

Lets try to get some activity on this part of the Board!

One part of HIPAA states that a computer program must provide some sort of 'timeout' feature. Similar to what a screen saver does.

Does anyone have any good ideas on how to automatically turn on a screen saver based on INACTIVITY in a Filemaker solution?

Does anyone have a good plug in for locking a system after a period of inactivity?

Are these x platform solutions?

TIA

Jerry

If the user is using FMP Server have the server log the person out after the "required" number of idle minutes has elapsed?!

Or a plugin that fires at intervals and checks or asks to continue if no action after x minutes lock it down.

But is there anything similar that can be done for a shrink wrapped solution?

we inserted a subscript into all of our navigation scripts to force a relogin after x hours. this doesn't avoid the program sitting on the same screen forever (couldn't get that one done internally, but the OS's screensaver/user logout could be used) but it will force the relogin the second someone tries to access anywhere else in the program.

      Our institution is now requiring PHI-containing databases to log not just modifications to records, but to log every access/viewing of any record. They want to be able to respond to the question "Who has looked at my medical record, even with no change to the record?".
      I am not aware how to achieve this with FM, do any of the add-on programs have such features?
      I am facing the forced elimination of a critical database, built over 15 yrs, if this cannot be achieved.
       
      Thanks for any suggestions.
