Oshkosh, WI (November 5, 2008) – ImproMed, Inc. is announcing the release of a free Identity Theft Prevention software program created for Infinity users to provide all Infinity veterinary clinics with an increased ability to protect the clinic’s customers from identity thieves.
ImproMed considers Identity Theft critically important and is the first practice management software company to address the dramatic rise in identity theft. By providing a process, at no charge, ImproMed can help protect the privacy and security of confidential customer information that may be stored in Infinity.
“All veterinary clinics need to be aware of the risk, dangers and inherent liability of storing client information, and in this changing world, software companies need to assist in shielding veterinary clinics,” says Ronald Detjen, ImproMed President and CEO. “Although veterinary clinics may consider themselves a small business and not a high risk, in the world of the Internet and e-mail, no business is immune to this type of theft.”
“ImproMed is committed to being a reliable business partner by maintaining an open dialogue with our customers and industry partners, and by actively seeking feedback about improving software and services.”
Over the years, ImproMed has also incorporated customer concerns about Identity Theft and system security into the Infinity Practice Management system. ImproMed has added password protection within the login screen, program modules, report printing within the Infinity program, and data protection and security at the raw database level. Additionally, secure interfaces to laboratory equipment, outside lab services, and the addition of the General Ledger Link Module provides secure channels in which productive interfaces can safely be achieved.
Not only do Infinity customers have ImproMed aiding in the protection of their database; the company has also turned to Microsoft to help look out for daily threats. Microsoft commits significant resources toward enhancing privacy protection, and as the only veterinary practice management software to be a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Infinity customers benefit from Microsoft’s services, software, support and products available to help customers manage the privacy of their information.
The Identity Theft Prevention software program can be obtained at no charge by contacting (800) 925-7171 or downloading it from the iCAN (Infinity Community Access Network) at www.impromed.com.
