With Over 500 Hospitals And 1 Million Healthcare Users, Imprivata Is The Proven Leader In Helping Hospitals Bridge The Gap Between Security And Clinician Productivity

LEXINGTON, MA-February 22, 2010- Imprivata® Inc., the company that simplifies and secures user access, today announced the launch of its Global Healthcare Division. The new division is built upon the company’s successful track record of working with more than 500 hospitals in 12 countries, one million healthcare users and strategic relationships with leading HIS vendors. The new division reinforces Imprivata’s commitment to help hospitals make patient data easily accessible throughout clinical workflows, enforce patient privacy and deploy transparent security.

Imprivata helps chief medical officers make patient data easily accessible throughout clinical workflows. Physicians, nurses and other clinicians are empowered through fast EMR access. Chief information officers and privacy officers can enforce stringent patient privacy policies and information security professionals can deploy transparent security across their healthcare information systems.

“Healthcare organizations are facing a confluence of trends and regulations that are driving change across the entire industry, however providing optimum patient care remains the constant priority,” states Omar Hussain, president and CEO of Imprivata. “Built upon nearly a decade of healthcare industry experience, Imprivata’s Global Healthcare Division is focused on quickly delivering innovations to a fast-moving market. Imprivata is the strategic choice for hospitals that demand seamless patient information access across complicated clinical workflows while ensuring patient privacy, compliance and new regulatory mandates.”

Imprivata’s Global Healthcare Division is committed to helping hospitals and healthcare organizations improve patient outcomes by simplifying and securing user access to patient health information. In doing so, it empowers fast EMR access, enforces stringent patient privacy policies and deploys transparent security. Specific details include:

  • Making Patient Data Easily Accessible: Empowering fast EMR access is vital to increasing clinician productivity and ensuring better patient outcomes. With Imprivata, clinicians can focus on improving patient care whether they are roaming the corridors, sharing workstations/desktops or remotely accessing patient data.
  • Enforcing Patient Privacy: Imprivata detects and prevents data breaches by enabling healthcare organizations to enforce patient privacy by streamlining patient privacy investigations, reporting and accounting for data breaches.
  • Deploying Transparent Security: Imprivata delivers transparent security for care delivery settings by protecting unattended desktops, securing shared workstations and fast-user switching, and supporting the latest authentication innovations such as advanced biometrics. This allows organizations to ensure heightened productivity for its users.

“Facilitating clinical workflows without compromising security has never been more challenging. With Imprivata’s authentication management and SSO capabilities, we have fast access to patient health information and we are able to make patient data usable throughout clinician workflows - whether using a shared workstation or roaming across our hospital. The result is a more efficient environment that leads to improved quality of patient care and outcomes,” said Dr. Michael Westcott, CMIO, Alegent Health

Imprivata OneSign®, Imprivata’s flagship solution, provides healthcare organizations with rapid single sign-on and strong authentication for all leading HIS vendors, including Cerner, Epic, Healthland, McKesson, MEDITECH, Siemens Medical, as well as all other types of applications.

“In the healthcare environment, IT security must serve to maintain the privacy of patient data – but not at the cost of disrupting the clinical workflow,” said Steve Coplan, The 451 Group. “Imprivata’s design goal for its access and authentication platform is to enable the definition of workflows that address the need for IT security to provide controls that balance risk management, sensible compliance management and productivity.”
