Reinforcing security shields
Protecting sensitive health information has never been more critical than it is in this era of hacking, breaching and data theft. Compounding the problem is the proliferation of mobile devices and the whirlwind of text messages, phone apps, e-mails and social media chats that have taken over electronic healthcare communications.
Imprivata Cortext is designed to offer more efficient, secure and reliable communication between providers inside and outside the hospital using smartphones, tablets and desktops. Its technology has been engineered to secure mobile and desktop messaging across care teams and multiple healthcare organizations. The security solution supports native platforms for iPhones, iPads, Android-based devices, BlackBerrys and desktops to foster communications and care coordination while addressing the inefficiencies of pagers and other outdated technologies, says Ed Gaudet, general manager of Imprivata Cortext Products Group. Imprivata Confirm ID combines two-factor authentication, presciber enrollment and identify proofing in a single solution.
“Confirm ID enables hospitals and providers to easily comply with DEA regulations for electronic prescribing of controlled substances,” Gaudet said. “It simplifies EPCS by integrating directly into the e-prescribing workflows of leading EHRs and giving providers the necessary flexibility to leverage the two-factor authentication options that meet all their prescribing workflow requirements.”
As the healthcare IT security company, Imprivata will showcase how all of its solutions have been created to improve clinical workflow efficiency and enhance the patient experience while also addressing multiple security and productivity challenges faced by hospitals and other healthcare organizations.
Imprivata’s flagship product, Imprivata OneSign, is used by more than 1,000 healthcare organizations and more than 3 million end users globally to securely access clinical applications and systems. It offers single sign-on, authentication management, and virtual desktop access to deliver fast, secure No Click Access to clinical applications and patient records.
“By eliminating the need for providers to repeatedly type usernames and passwords, it helps keep the focus on patient care while also ensuring compliance with security and regulatory requirements,” Gaudet said. “In addition, through tight integration with leading desktop virtualization platforms and thin/zero client hardware, Imprivata OneSign enables seamless access to roaming desktops, giving providers access to the systems and information they need at the point of care.”
Imprivata will be at booth 3848 in the South Hall.
