Tips for Creating Strong Passwords

SafetyAccording to Microsoft, “Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your computer. The stronger your password, the more protected your computer will be from hackers and malicious software. You should make sure you have strong passwords for all accounts on your computer”

Never, ever share your passwords with anyone and don’t use the same password over and over! Passwords should be at least eight characters long; never contain complete words or names; and use various types of characters

Here are some tips from Microsoft for creating strong passwords.

When Medications Are No Longer Available

pillsAll prescribed drugs must have a code in order to be processed. Medications that become unavailable to pharmacies will not have a code.  If you try to e-prescribe a medication that is no longer available, you will receive an error message.

To resolve the problem for an existing medication that your patient is currently taking, first stop the medication so it will sync back in QuicDoc as having been stopped. Then search for a generic or different brand name for the medication. Select one of the medications in the links provided in your search results.

drfirstTo clear this problem on a new prescription, First Cancel or Delete the prescription. Then prescribe a new medication by searching for a generic or one with a different brand name to prescribe. Select one of the medications in the links provided in your search results.

Ransomware CryptXXX

SecurityThere’s a new more sinister version of malware out there.  CryptXXX2.0 will render an infected computer unusable.  For previous versions of this malware a free decryption tool was available to recover encrypted files and avoid paying a ransom. 

Be careful opening email attachments and clicking on email and internet links. Several of our customers have reported contracting this malware in recent weeks. You can learn more here:  https://www.proofpoint.com/us/threat-insight/post/cryptxxx2-ransomware-authors-strike-back-against-free-decryption-tool  (Yes, this link is safe.)  You can also type in cryptxxx and find many articles about this malware, but be very careful where you click.

Opioid Addiction

addictionThe current epidemic of prescription opioid abuse has led to increased use of heroin. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) opioid pain relievers, as well as heroin, can produce a wonderful feeling of euphoria because they interact with receptors in the body and brain. Opioid pain relievers are safe when taken for a short time as prescribed by a doctor. However, they are easily addictive and frequently misused because of the euphoria they produce.

addctionWith regular use, even as prescribed by a doctor, drugs such as Vicodin®, Oxycodone, Darvon®, and Fentynal can produce dependence and lead to misuse resulting in fatal overdose. Prescription and over the counter drugs are, after marijuana and alcohol, the most commonly abused substances in Americans ages 14 and older.
