McKesson Customers Continue to Implement Imprivata OneSign to Improve Productivity and Clinician Satisfaction

No Click Access™ Simplifies Clinician Workflows for 6 More McKesson Hospitals

LEXINGTON, MA - October 18, 2011 - Imprivata® the #1 independent single sign-on (SSO) and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, announced today that 6 more hospitals running McKesson solutions have recently implemented Imprivata OneSign® to optimize clinician access to electronic medical records (EMR) and other applications. Coffee Regional Medical Center, Grand Ronde Hospital, Kansas Heart Hospital, Ridgeview Medical Center, Riverside Healthcare and Somerset Hospital are among the latest McKesson hospitals to implement Imprivata OneSign to improve clinician productivity, allowing physicians, nurses and other care givers to focus more time on patient care. Imprivata OneSign has been a popular workflow enabler among McKesson Horizon, Paragon and Star users for several years, and has been implemented at more than 50 McKesson hospitals including recognized leaders in quality healthcare such as Atlantic Health, Fremont-Rideout Health Group, Good Samaritan Hospital, OhioHealth and Spartanburg Regional Medical Center.

As healthcare organizations move from paper-based to electronic patient records, it has become apparent that though the benefits are substantial, securely accessing electronic data can disrupt workflows, slow productivity and frustrate clinicians. With Imprivata OneSign, clinicians can have secure No Click Access™ to patient information from anywhere, with a tap of the proximity card or swipe of a fingerprint. According to a recent Ponemon Institute study, Single Sign-on (SSO) technology can save clinicians an average of 9.51 minutes a day (122 hours per year) by reducing the number of clicks required to access the information they need.

“Everything that we do in IT is aligned with Riverside Healthcare’s #1 goal of delivering the highest quality patient care. I consider our role in improving clinician productivity similar to that of a pit crew at the Indianapolis 500. It’s our job to optimize the medical staff’s use of information technology, speeding workflow and allowing doctors and nurses to do what they do best, care for patients. Imprivata OneSign helps us do just that.”

Philip J. Bierdz, Infrastructure Manager at Riverside Healthcare, One of the Nation’s Top 100 Hospitals
