Dear MedSafety Scan User:
Thank you for subscribing to, and using, the MedSafety Scan system for medication safety. It’s been nearly two months since we made the system available at no cost to ensure that health care providers have access to this tool during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that you have found it useful in your practice or research and we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how it can best suit your needs. As we continue to develop the features and utility of the application, you can expect periodic updates as the system evolves and we have important news to share.
Here are the most up-to-date changes to MSS as of June 25, 2020:
New security feature — Two-Factor Authentication
To further ensure that your data are safe and secure, we’ve enabled the option for two-factor authentication to all user accounts at MedSafety Scan. Although optional, we recommend that users activate this feature to add an additional layer of security to your account. To activate two-factor authentication, go to My Account > Two-Factor Authentication or use this link after logging in to your account and follow the steps on the screen:
Once configured, in order to sign into your MedSafety Scan account, you will be required to enter a code created by either the Google Authenticator, Duo Mobile, Authy, or Windows Phone Authenticator app. Let us know if you need support to enable this feature. Email email@example.com for assistance.
Visit medsafetyscan.org for information about recent feature updates and answers to our FAQs. If you have a question or a use case scenario you'd like to share with us, we welcome you to email us here.
Thank you for all you are doing to keep patients safe.
