In order to secure your electronic health records systems and maintain security compliance, we must now use  two-factor authentication for remote access. Please follow the process below before initiating your remote access connection.

Install and Configure Two-Factor Authentication App

If authentication app is already configured OR if using WatchGuard AuthPoint hardware token, proceed to “Initiate Remote Access Session” section. 

    1. Install WatchGuard AuthPoint Mobile App: With your smart phone device, download and install “WatchGuard AuthPoint” from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.     
    2.  Open App and Tab “Activate”: Open AuthPoint App and tab “Activate” button.
    3. Allow Camera Access: If prompted, allow access to mobile device camera.
    4. Open WatchGuard Activation Email & Start Activation: From a desktop or laptop computer, check for an email message from WatchGuard with “Activation” in the subject line and once located, click “Start Activation” button (a web browser opens, displaying a QR code).


  • The WatchGuard activation email must be opened from a laptop or desktop computer. 
  • You can access your email anywhere from or your business OWA site.
  • If you did not receive a WatchGuard activation email message, please contact DTS Support.
