Imprivata Announces 45 Percent Growth in First Half of 2012

Sustained Record Growth Reflected In HIMSS Market Leadership, Expanded Partnerships and Swift Adoption of New Healthcare IT Security Solutions

August 15, 2012 – Lexington, Mass.Imprivata®, the leader in secure access and collaboration for healthcare, today announced record first half growth with a 45 percent year-over-year increase worldwide. During the first six months of 2012, Imprivata added 105 new healthcare customers, further supporting the company’s number one Single Sign-On (SSO) market share leadership position in U.S. acute care hospitals since the start of 2012*.  As the transformation to digital, portable health records accelerates, so does the need for large-scale roll-outs of secure access solutions. This presents significant future growth opportunities in the market.

*According to the HIMSS Analytics database (and verified by HIMSS Analytics executives), Imprivata’s share (25.3 percent) of the 2,078 U.S. acute care hospitals with purchased SSO products as of August 8, 2012, was greater than any other vendor in this market. This is a position the company has maintained throughout 2012.

New customers added this year include Blue Care in Australia, Klinikum-Wels in Austria, South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust of Northern Ireland, The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, The Nemours Foundation, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and University of California-Irvine Medical Center.

Specific drivers for Imprivata’s record first half 2012 growth include:

  • Healthcare Reform: Imprivata OneSign is playing a significant role in speeding Electronic Health Records (EHRs) adoption, and is a requisite component for facilities to meet Meaningful Use deadlines.
  • Mobility: The rise of desktop virtualization, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and collaboration over portable data is creating strong demand for secure, auditable access at any end point.
  • Impact of new partnerships: Imprivata’s Healthland partnership, announced in February, has already resulted in 15 new hospitals implementing Imprivata OneSign – 10 of which are competitive replacements.
  • Strong Partner Performance: Revenue coming through CDW, Cerner, Forward Advantage, Siemens and other partners continued to grow in the first half of 2012.
  • Imprivata Developer Program: Imprivata’s ProveID APIs have become the defacto standard for integrating secure No Click Access® into applications, medical devices, services and non-Windows endpoints, including Linux, thin and zero client devices.
  • Expansion in Europe and AsiaPac: Recent investments in mainland Europe and Australia have resulted in 15 new customers in the first half of 2012, while growth in the United Kingdom has exceeded 100 NHS Trusts, including the whole of NHS Scotland.

In addition to marked customer expansion and success, other Imprivata milestones during the first half of 2012 included organizational developments, notable industry recognition, and new products and partnerships. Among the highlights are the following:

  • More than 20 percent employee growth, targeting an additional 25 percent growth by year-end
  • Introduction of Cortext, a free HIPAA compliant text messaging solution
  • Expanded international business in Australia, France and Germany
  • Addition of key new hires, including Mark Clark, Vice President of International Sales, based in the UK; and John Milton, Vice President and General Counsel, based in Lexington, Mass.
  • Score of 88.4 in the KLAS 2012 Mid-Term Performance Review: Software & Services” report
  • Recipient of the Frost & Sullivan 2012 North American Customer Value Enhancement Award For Speeding Adoption of Electronic Medical Records
