At the behest of Baseline, Guardent Inc. security consultant Anthony Bettini took a crack at the code that protects the New England Healthcare EDI Network from unauthorized use.


How the Testing Was Conducted

Guardent Inc., a leading provider of computer network security services based in Waltham, Mass., performed a series of tests at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital that:

  • Focused on NEHEN Lite and eGateway, the key pieces of software that allow users and administrators to obtain and share patient and transaction data on the network, and
  • Employed a limited number of user names and passwords provided by CareGroup; and the Internet Protocol addresses of a CareGroup server and NEHEN gateway.
