Using Single Sign-On to Ease EMR Adoption – A Look at Parkview Adventist Medical Center

Congratulations to Imprivata customer Parkview Adventist Medical Center for recently earning the HIMSS Analytics Stage 6 designation! HIMSS Analytics highlights the Stage 6 award as recognition for hospitals that have made significant investments in healthcare IT and as well as implementing paperless medical records. This is a remarkable achievement for Parkview, considering that they’re one of only 42 hospitals out of 5,166 in the US to attain this level.

Parkview is a great example of how our healthcare customers are using single sign-on technology and strong authentication solutions like fingerprint biometric identification to address the productivity and security concerns that come with deploying a full-scale electronic medical records system.

We’ve asked Bill McQuaid, CIO of Parkview, to be a guest blogger to share some tips on how they’re using the Imprivata OneSign platform to increase physician productivity, while ensuring data security for patient records in a completely paperless environment. With the federal government continuing to push healthcare providers to adopt an EMR format, Parkview provides a successful model to emulate and learn from.
