People today have become inundated with passwords. Everything has a password and the complexity of the passwords continually change. Simple 4 digit PIN codes are now a thing of the past. We also can no longer use a simple alpha character password for most systems. Even more advanced technology such as biometrics, including facial recognition have become commonplace as well.
Imagine having to manage and control access to hospital systems with employees as well as visiting doctors and staff. Imagine a surgeon visiting various hospitals with different EMR platforms within the same week. Patient rounding and quick access to records is essential to delivering quality care.

By removing repetitive manual logins with a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution, care providers can save valuable time and instead use it to focus on patient care. The right solution must do more than just streamline access – especially for healthcare. Healthcare requires a purpose-built enterprise access solution that brings together authentication, SSO and virtual desktop access. It must also consider the specific and complex clinical workflows while enabling efficiencies for IT staff and care providers.
Imprivata builds healthcare’s preferred digital identity platform based on actual clinical workflows to simplify secure access to the right data, for the right reasons. Medical professionals can’t wait for secure access to the applications needed to provide patient care. Healthcare organizations must protect PHI from internal, external, and third-party threats. Managing and controlling the digital identity is the only way to keep data and applications secure while ensuring quick and proper clinician access.
