ITBriefing.net: Imprivata Announces 45 Percent Growth in First Half of 2012
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.
