Imprivata customers take the UK’s ehi Awards by storm as they demonstrate continued innovation in healthcare IT

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to join the best and brightest of the NHS, many of who are Imprivata customers, at the ehi Awards gala in London. In a time when NHS funds are limited and efficiency gains – clinical and operational – are needed, these finalists represent those that have gone above and beyond to deliver the highest quality care and drive new innovative ways to deliver the right information to the right care provider at the right time in a patient’s journey.  

Our customers also know that patient privacy and overall security are of the utmost importance as cybersecurity attacks become more and more prevalent. Being able to provide the right security with the convenience to access the right information at the right time has enabled them to give time back to their clinical teams and drive operational efficiency.

I would like to congratulate all of our customers who were finalists and winners. These organizations truly have gone above and beyond.
