5 Ways to Leverage SSO (Single Sign On) Technology to Drive Meaningful Use

Last year, the Ponemon Institute, a research firm that advises organizations on data security and privacy, released a report revealing that each hospital loses an average $2 million a year in productivity when clinicians can’t access electronic health records. The report sponsored by “Best in KLAS” SSO market leader, Imprivata states that 83 percent of respondents said SSO simplifies access to applications and data, and about 70 percent of participants thought SSO was important or very important to adoption of EHRs and related systems. Single Sign On (SSO) technology can assist healthcare organizations in overcoming their barriers to clinical adoption by physicians/clinicians with secure access to EMR applications. With the recent announcement of Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements, single sign on (SSO) technology can play a vital role in helping healthcare organizations accelerate in meeting with requirements to meet stage 1 and 2 Meaningful Use.
