How do we encrypt Patient Names, Phone numbers and Address in OpenMRS before HTML Form entry module form submission and also in the Registration module. Is there a global property that can be configured to activate this feature. We are currently running OpenMRS Reference App 2.7 on platform 2.0.6.

Do you mean encryption during transmission from browser client to the server side database? Or encryption in the database?

Encryption at database level

A google search with text like mysql database encryption will do the trick. :slight_smile:

I do not really need the entire database to be encrypted i just want to encrypt some specific fields (names, phone, address).

Am thinking of customizing the Registration module and encrypt the name and address field. It can then be decrypted from the reporting module

can this help out with encrypting the names,phone and address columns of your table
