Healthland and Imprivata Partner to Deliver Secure, No Click Access to More Rural Community and Critical Access Hospitals
MINNEAPOLIS and LEXINGTON, MASS – February 22, 2012 – Healthland, America's market leader of healthcare information technology solutions for rural community and critical access hospitals, and Imprivata, the leader in secure access and collaboration for healthcare, today announced a partner relationship. Under terms of the agreement, Healthland will resell Imprivata’s industry-leading single sign-on and access management technology to provide easy, secure access to patient data and Healthland solutions.
“We are always striving to provide a better client experience and our new relationship with Imprivata is another prime example of that,” said Stan Opstad, senior vice president of product management at Healthland. “Imprivata is the clear leader in authentication and single sign-on solutions to hospitals, they are endorsed by the American Hospital Association, and they lead the KLAS rankings. We know from the experiences of our current mutual customers that this relationship will simplify application and data access and save clinicians as much as 45 minutes per day."
Imprivata OneSign® enhances healthcare delivery by providing fast, secure access to patient information. It helps speed adoption of electronic medical records (EMR) by simplifying and streamlining access, saving clinicians time and allowing them to focus on treating patients.
“We are excited to see these two strategic vendors form a partnership,” said Mandy Greve, network administrator at Box Butte General Hospital. “Convincing clinicians to adopt any new technology can be a challenge, as their focus is on patient care. By making data security invisible to users, and optimizing their workflows, Imprivata helped increase adoption and usage of our Healthland system, allowing us to take advantage of its benefits faster, and be better prepared to meet Meaningful Use requirements.”
Healthland healthcare information management solutions provide complete visibility to patient information across all points of care.

“This partnership is great news, especially for our joint customers,” said Geoff Hogan, senior vice president of business development at Imprivata. “Over the years, many leading Healthland hospitals like Box Butte General Hospital, Henry County Hospital and Mahaska Health Partnership have deployed Imprivata OneSign to improve care provider productivity while securing patient data. These customers provide Imprivata with valuable insight that impacts the development of our secure access and collaboration solutions, allowing us to continually raise the bar for workflow efficiency. This agreement with Healthland allows us to bring those efficiencies to more rural community and critical access hospitals.”
