By default, EEGer encodes consultation export files for HIPAA compliance.This will create a new Client ID in your list of clients using a series of alphanumeric characters to protect confidential client information when sent over the internet or between EEGer users. The new Client ID will contain all of the transferred client’s session data for your review. 

If you would prefer the session data to be imported to an existing Client ID and not be encoded, please have the sender follow these steps on their system:

  1. Navigate to Options>EEGer Configuration Options>HIPAA from the top toolbar on the main screen of EEGer. 

  2. Uncheck 6 Encode Client ID on Consultation Export.

  3. Click Close preferences window at the bottom of the window to save these settings.
