Imprivata, the healthcare digital identity company, has been at the forefront of digital transformation in healthcare. As organizations continue to balance security and efficiency across all workflows for all users, devices, applications, and locations, Imprivata is proud to introduce its newest technology, secure walkaway (SWA), now available with Imprivata OneSign.

With secure walkaway, Imprivata OneSign is the only solution in healthcare that leverages Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and the power of mobile devices to lock and unlock workstations based on the proximity of the device to the workstation. This solution enables fast, secure re-authentication into workstations without the need for additional clicks, while securing protected health information (PHI) on unattended workstations, all without disrupting clinical workflows. And because secure walkaway leverages the Imprivata ID mobile app, organizations can leverage one application to drive several mobile workflows, including multifactor authentication and hands-free authentication for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS).

This new enhancement represents a new and important part of the Imprivata integrated IAM platform that enables provisioning, access, single sign-on, multifactor authentication, and governance and compliance for the entire healthcare enterprise. Because secure walkaway technology is an embedded component of OneSign 7.1, no additional software licenses are required to take advantage of this new, unique feature that enables continuous authentication.

With nearly two decades of expertise, Imprivata prides itself as a digital identity company focused on solving healthcare’s unique challenges. OneSign has saved healthcare providers valuable time by removing the complications and barriers associated with technology, and allowing these practitioners to spend more energy on what matters most: their patients. Organizations that want to address compliance requirements, bolster security and privacy, all without impeding the delivery of patient care should consider leveraging Imprivata OneSign with secure walkaway technology, available now Imprivata OneSign 7.1.
