The Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD is the site for this year's Siemens Innovations Conference. Imprivata is a sponsor of the conference and has a booth in the Innovations Expo. There is no summer slowdown at this conference.  Over 900 Siemens Medical Solutions customers are in attendance. Many of them have already stopped by the Imprivata booth. What's exciting is that they don't have to visit just the Imprivata booth to see OneSign in action. The Siemens services team along with VMware and Intel-McAfee have created a roaming OneSign demo. An attendee can tap a badge at the Siemens booth and access the Soarian EMR via a virtual desktop. Then that attendee can roam to the VMware, Intel, or Imprivata booth and maintain their virtual desktop and Soarian session by tapping their card in those respective booths. It's all about clinician workflow and this integrated roaming demo displays it beautifully.   Other Imprivata partners including Citrix and Siemens Enterprise Communications (who deliver the dual purpose bedside terminal for clinician access and patient entertainment) are also touting fast access to patient information and improved clinician workflow with OneSign.  We are also demoing Cortext, Imprivata's new HIPAA compliant text messaging solution for hospitals. So far, everybody who has seen the Cortext demo thinks it's great and wants to learn more about joining the beta program!!
