Mar 24, 2017: Extended maintenance window this Sunday
We reserve 10am to 12noon each Sunday for system maintenance but rarely use this entire time. However this Sunday will require an extended maintenance window to accommodate heavy burn-in testing of two critical system components. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The maintenance will start at 9.30am and could possibly extend to as long as 12.30pm EST. If you have questions or concerns our support staff will be available at 416.226.9948 x4

Mar 22, 2017: System Outage at 4:46PM lasting 14 minutes
An unexpected failure of an NFS storage device caused a system outage on Mar 22nd. Support received simultaneous SNMP alerts and support phone calls at 4:46pm indicating a problem. The adapter for transporting data between the primary server and storage systems had crashed under load. Support reset the device and ran quick diagnostics which reported the device as stable, and production was restored by 5pm. Users were back online and active by 5:01pm.

No data was lost and transactions being processed during the outage were queued and completed after recovery. The NFS adapter is scheduled for burn in testing during the maintenance window this weekend to ensure reliable service.

Jan 1, 2017: Best wishes for the New Year from eClaims Workflow
System update 2.2.5.5.0 has been posted this morning. Included is our eMsg system which allows a wider range of Insurers and Vendors to communicate with each other. Companies that are not part of the normal claims process can eMsg using eClaims Security protection and without the need for complex PGP or TLS email configurations. Utilizing SecureDocs technology the eMsg is sent in real-time, allows for large content (up to 2Gb per attachment), and has full audit tracking.

Claims suppliers such as auto-body, medical (treatment or assistive devices), or others can submit a claim for approval through the eClaims Portal. And this allows the Insurer to track all claims on a national level.

There are a number of other features. If interested please contact sales at sales@eclaimsworkflow.com or call 416.226.9948 x3 for more information.

August 26, 2016: Security Update at eClaims Workflow
As of September 30th we are removing support for legacy technologies such as TLS 1.0 and ActiveX. These technologies were commonly used in older browsers such as Internet Explorer versions 7/8/9. Anyone accessing eClaims Workflow with an outdated browser will see a notice to upgrade to continue service past October 1st. We are taking this action to avoid any vulnerabilities that reside in older technologies and to ensure the strength of our security.

Apr 19, 2016: US/Canada Data and privacy
There are numerous discussions about data privacy and storage in the media. eClaims Workflow stores all data within it’s country of origin. This means that data from Canadian Insurers is stored only in Canada and does not transit through USA or other foreign systems. Similarly data being hosted on USA systems does not leave the USA and is subject to USA law only. Our Data protection module prevents any privileged data from being sent outside of system policy. We constantly track legal and privacy trends and integrate these features into the platform.
