Compliance and protection for pharmacy owners

A pizza joint has to worry about PCI compliance. PCI Compliance is securing their customer’s credit card and personal information. A hospital has to worry about HIPAA compliance. HIPAA compliance is securing a patient’s personal information.

What if you have to worry about both?

Pharmacies are in this unique situation. They are receiving information on a customer’s prescription. This falls under HIPAA. They then have to charge the customer via credit card. This falls under PCI.

Which one is more important?

That’s a loaded question. A violation of either can result is massive fees, fines and bad PR. So both are equal and extremely important. A slip up, and you could lose your pharmacy. Fees, fines and loss of business can often stretch over $100,000 following a...

Why ANX was unaffected by the Heartbleed bug

It was recently revealed that the Heartbleed bug, a vulnerability in the OpenSSL program that powers encrypted communication to many of the world's web sites and private networks, may have affected as many 500,000 systems.


It was recently announced to customers that ANX were not affected because the versions of SSL ANX uses were not vulnerable to the bug.


"We initiated both internal and external scans with neither scans showing a compromise in our system's vulnerability," said Jim Schmidt, ANX Executive Vice President of Operations.
