What are my responsibilities regarding security?

You play a vital role in securing your my ehealth user ID and password. Your user ID and password is the unique way for us to know that it is you accessing your online account.

Always create a complex password that is meaningful to you and not known or easily guessed by others. Your password must be at least 8 characters long, contain a mix of upper (capital) and lower case characters, and contain at least one number or one special character. Never share your password, write it down, or allow anyone to observe you enter your password.

Once your lab information reaches your computer it is your responsibility to protect it. Here are a few steps we recommend:

• Never leave your computer unattended while you are logged onto my ehealth
• Ensure your computer is password protected
• When you are finished using my ehealth, always log out using the log out button, and close all browser windows
• Ensure you have up-to-date anti-virus and malware protection installed on your computer at all times
• If you print any reports from my ehealth, keep them in a secure and confidential location
