2-Factor Authentication

2-Factor AuthenticationPatagonia Health EHR supports 2-factor authentication via one-time password (OTP) through SMS or email. Users logging into the EHR simply enter an additional 6-digit code that they receive on their registered SMS or email address. This feature is not required but is available at an extra fee for added security.
