N3 Remote Access
Our N3 remote access service allows clinicians and healthcare professionals to securely access N3 network services, enhancing patient experiences and outcomes. This enables users to access their patients' data from anywhere via an encrypted tunnel whilst meeting the need of an increasing mobile workforce and requirement for cost-efficiencies.
The N3 remote access allows clinicians to securely connect to N3 services and information such as patient medical histories, Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS) or digital images like X-rays.

HOW WE PROVIDE A SECURE N3 REMOTE ACCESS
Secure access to the private N3 network makes use of a public, freely available network connection (the Internet) so access can be delivered from any location.
To ensure the connection to the N3 network is guarded, a piece of software on your device creates a secure tunnel to our N3 remote access platform. All data that is passed through this resilient gateway is encrypted, protecting information in transit to N3 resources.
As a vital component in safeguarding patient information, an extra layer of security is added by using highly-secure two factor authentication (2FA). This ensures that only authorised users can connect and use their secure tunnel. The two factor authentication involves a secure, time-sensitive password that is randomly-generated, ensuring that an N3 connection is only granted to legitimate users.
TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION FOR REMOTE N3 CONNECTIONS
Our N3 remote access service is secured by two factor authentication:
- Your log in and password details
- Randomly-generated, time sensitive password ('One Time Password' or OTP) that is presented on a separate device
