The government has recently enacted legislation to safe guard the privacy and integrity of confidential medical records. At FastPath, Inc. we have responded by creating a utility which encrypts and decrypts records, or fields within a record to help companies comply with this new legislation.
These utility programs are written in machine language,
making them compact, fast, and reentrant. This means that they may be put
into the system Link Pack Area (LPA), making them even faster and easier to call.
These utilities can be called by both batch and CICS programs. They may be
called by programs written in assembler language as well as any of the
high level languages, ie: Cobol, PLI, C++, etc.
