Is my data safe?
Foxo has been specifically developed as a means for Australian healthcare providers to readily share patient information to enable better patient care. Patient data is sent over an encrypted connection, conforming to the latest web security standards. As no electronic platform can ever be completely secure from cyber attacks or data breaches, to limit further risk it is always best to only send as much sensitive information as is required for patient care. De-identification of clinical information may be appropriate in selected instances, providing it does not jeopardise patient care.
Do I need my patient’s consent to share their information on Foxo?
Yes. Whenever you share patient information with other healthcare providers a patient must consent to providing his/her sensitive health information, whether this consent is verbal, written or implied. This is regardless of whether this information is communicated verbally (eg by phone) or in writing (eg fax, patient information systems or Foxo).

Where is my data stored?
Foxo is cloud-based which means your patient data is stored on servers, not on your device. The data is stored only in Australia on secure, encrypted servers with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Who can access my patient information when I share, refer or handover?
To understand how patient information is accessible when you share to messages, or refer and handover see our help article.
