Restrict Access by IP Address

RTasks.net is a web-based application, so can be accessed anywhere there is access to the internet.

For HIPAA compliance, it's important to restrict access to RTasks for some users so they may only access RTasks from pre-authorized locations (e.g. the facility). This can be achieved with our IP Address Restriction controls.

This feature allows you to allow some individual users (such as on-call nurses or administrators) to log in from anywhere, and restrict others (HHAs, CNAs, housekeeping, etc) so they can only log in from your pre-authorized network. 

To use this feature, your building must have a Static IP Address from your Internet Service Provider.

Staff with the Manager (Role 11) or Supervisor (Role 13) permissions can manage this setting.
