HIMSS Analytics Report: Streamlining Workflows and Access to Patient Data in Canadian Hospitals

This whitepaper outlines the key findings of a May 2013 research report from HIMSS Analytics titled “Streamlining Workflows and Access to Patient Data in Canadian Hospitals.” The study, which is based on interviews conducted with IT executives from hospitals throughout Canada, outlines the data access and workflow efficiency challenges Canadian hospitals face as they continue to implement electronic health record (EHR) systems. It also identifies single sign-on (SSO), authentication and virtualization technology as a solution to streamline access to clinical systems and patient information.
