Autism-Awareness-Month

The United States has been celebrating Autism Awareness Month in April since the 1970’s. The primary focus is to develop autism awareness, acceptance and education through a variety of national and local events.

There are a number of biomedical treatments for the treatment of autism, including the use of supplements, implementing a gluten-free diet and immune system regulation. During Autism Awareness Month, parents of children with autism can participate in local or national educational programs to learn more about how to manage and organize medications for their child. Parents are given criteria for helping their child’s health provider manage their medications by gathering information about the child’s current functioning, social performance and family history. It’s also important for the parent to advise the treating physician about other prescriptions, special diets, allergies, over-the-counter medications, herbs and other botanicals.

Likely, you’re child is taking a variety of medications and supplements with occasional over-the counter meds. In addition, you may have several health providers for your child, including family doctors, nutritionists, speech therapists and psychologists. This all can cause confusion when it comes to managing and organizing medications. A good solution is to use an online platform where you can enter your child’s medical history, prescribed medications, daily schedule for medications and even emergency contact information. Make updates when needed and keep track of everything all in one place.

All around, Autism Awareness Month is filled with opportunities for parents of children with autism to learn about their child’s medications, as well as how to organize and distribute them. Taking advantage of the educational programs is a way for parents to lessen the stress of raising a child with autism.

Security concept: Gold Closed Padlock on digital background

There are two things that everyone cares about: their health and their privacy.  At PRIVIT, we understand there are hundreds of ways people share or exchange health related information. Whether or not you are sharing the information between you and your medical professional, your family, your school, or your employer, we know you have to make sure your medical information is private and secure.

PRIVIT takes privacy beyond what most companies ever consider. PRIVIT has “a solution based on their patented technologies for securely managing medical records in a privacy-compliant manner.” This solution uses data encryption and access control lists to enforce rules of access. Thus, assuring you are only sharing the medical information you want to share at any given time. PRIVIT uses this patented solution as the foundation for its Privit Platform where all of its products are developed: Privit Profile, Family Health Profile, Student Health Profile, and Employee Health Profile.

At PRIVIT, we put security first. Our belief is simple, double the encryption and double the security. We not only encrypt your data when it is being transferred over the Internet with 256 SSL technology, but we also encrypt the data when it is at rest in our secure data centers. Your data is encrypted once with an AE256 symmetric key, and then the key is also encrypted, and then put on an entirely different and secured server, making sure the data is secured. If someone was to actually view the data it would look like a combination of nonsensical symbols and characters.

Beyond our application security methodologies, all of our products are operated at the highest rated data centers in North America. The physical security is controlled and monitored by the companies themselves, and all of these data centers have passed the necessary privacy certifications including: ISO 27002, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, SSAE16, SOC1, SOC2, SOC3, and Safe Harbor.

Security discussions involve a lot of technologies, acronyms, and other multi-syllable, fairly non-understandable words, and is often referred to as Military Grade Encryption. You can take comfort in knowing that PRIVIT’s security methods go far beyond what others are even contemplating. Our patented, privacy protection methodologies make sure we live up to your beliefs. We know there are two things that you care about: your health and your privacy.  You can take care of your health, we’ll take care of the privacy of your health information.
