Imprivata Cites Rapid Adoption of No Click Access to VMware View Roaming Desktops among Healthcare Organizations

Growing Number of Tech Savvy Hospitals Increase Clinician Productivity and Patient Face Time with Imprivata OneSign® and VMware View™

LAS VEGAS August 29, 2011 — Today at VMworld® 2011, Imprivata® the #1 independent single sign-on (SSO) and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, announced that an increasing number of customers are improving clinician productivity and bedside service with secure, No Click Access to electronic medical records (EMR) and other applications. By delivering fast and secure access to Protected Health Information (PHI) via point of care desktops that follow users throughout their shifts, Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Memorial Healthcare, MidMichigan Health System, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and Valley Presbyterian Hospital have significantly reduced the amount of time clinicians spend logging in and out of systems, allowing more time for patient care.

With Imprivata OneSign and VMware View authorized doctors, nurses and other caregivers can access patient data from anywhere with just the touch of a finger or the tap of a badge. As a user moves between workstations, PCs, thin or zero clients, the desktop is immediately restored to its previous state, eliminating the need to restart each application and streamlining access to patient information. The combined solution eliminates password-related frustration and delivers electronic information to clinicians wherever they are, helping to speed EMR adoption and achieve Meaningful Use.

Imprivata OneSign’s No Click Access can be seen at virtualized desktops that will be roaming throughout the show floor at this week’s VMworld 2011 Conference. See the solution in action with a session that follows you between Imprivata (booth # 1070), Teradici (booth # 1013), VMware (booth # 621), Dell (booth #s 901, 911), EMC (booth #1101) and VCE (booth # 1121).

“With just the tap of a card our clinicians have fast log-on and log-off at thin clients throughout the hospital and by providing easy access to data, we have helped our clinicians embrace the EMR system. In fact, one doctor recently told me that I was finally doing something for him instead of something to him. We are in the process of attesting to stage one now, a position we would not be in without Imprivata and VMware.”

Edward Ricks, VP and Chief Information Officer, Beaufort Memorial Hospital

Beaufort Memorial Hospital Case Study

“With VMware View and Imprivata OneSign doctors, nurses and other caregivers can access patient records quickly and securely with the tap of a card. By putting the information they need at their fingertips, clinicians have more time to spend delivering highly personalized patient care, and that is our ultimate goal at Memorial Healthcare.”

Frank Fear, Vice President of Information Services, Memorial Healthcare

Memorial Healthcare Case Study

'One of the biggest complaints a healthcare IT person hears from clinicians is the amount of clicks and keystrokes it typically takes to log in and out of systems; they consider it a complete waste of time. No-click access from virtualized desktops eliminates that frustration, making it fast and easy to access medical records and healthcare applications, in turn enabling clinicians to spend more time with patients.'

Ryan D. Winn, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, MidMichigan Health System

“Our goal was to move away from a paper-based system and we required a solution that could help increase efficiency and heighten security, all while improving patient care. With Imprivata and VMware, we have found that our clinicians are able to spend less time with technology and more time with the patient, a real win for our hospital.”

Michael Elder, IT Director – Technical Services, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital

“Our number one priority is patient safety; therefore our technology solutions must improve workflow for our doctors and nurses, not slow them down with multiple passwords. By eliminating the password hurdle using Imprivata OneSign and VMware View, we found physicians were more inclined to focus on the benefits of EMR and welcome the new systems. I honestly don’t know how organizations can get to full EMR adoption without the help of Imprivata and VMware.”

Ray Moss, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Valley Presbyterian Hospital

“IT departments are not accustomed to praise from physicians and nurses. Anything our customers can do to allow users to spend more time seeing patients is a major win. Together with Imprivata, we are able to help our customers provide care givers with more time for patient care.”

Frank Nydam, Director of Healthcare Solutions and Market Development, VMware

“In today’s fast-paced, highly mobile healthcare organizations, immediate access to patient data is critical to help clinicians make time-sensitive decisions and focus on patient care. Since partnering with VMware last year, we have seen a sharp increase in the number of forward thinking healthcare organizations who are incorporating no-click roaming desktops into their EMR implementations to satisfy clinicians and raise the quality of care.”
