Imprivata OneSign Extends Integration with Leading Electronic Medical Records Vendor

Tight Integration with Epic's Authentication APIs Speeds Clinician Access, Streamlines Workflow and Simplifies Compliance with Meaningful Use Requirements for Computerized Physician Order Entry

ORLANDO, FL. — February 21, 2011—At HIMSS11, Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, today announced integration of the Company’s #1 KLAS-rated single sign-on (SSO) and authentication software with Epic’s authentication API. This tight integration provides healthcare professionals with the most streamlined method available on the market for fast and secure access. By adding OneSign to their environments, clinicians gain:

  • No Click Access® to inpatient and ambulatory electronic medical records (EMR) with the tap of a badge or swipe of a fingerprint
  • Walk-Away security
  • One-touch re-authentication for medication order signing and Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)

No Click Access® to Electronic Medical Records

Clinicians are constantly required to login to workstations as they move around the hospital going from patient to patient. By replacing the need to type in a username and password with no click login by the swipe of a fingerprint or touch of an ID badge, OneSign reduces the time taken for every login. When a clinician enters a new room, a single touch is sufficient to provide secure authenticated access.

Walk-Away Security for Epic

OneSign Secure Walk-Away® uses facial recognition to monitor the presence of the authenticated user in front of the workstation. When the clinician walks away, the screen is automatically locked and immediately unlocked when the clinician returns. From the clinician’s perspective, OneSign Secure Walk-Away is completely automatic and transparent. Clinicians can focus on the patient and not worry about logging off when they leave, or leaving someone in the room with an active workstation.

One-Touch Re-authentication for Medication Order Signing and CPOE

Policies or industry regulations require physicians to re-authenticate when ordering medications or signing an e-prescription. Typically, the physician must re-type their password for these protected transactions—once again distracting attention away from the patient and opening more opportunity for password breaches. Using Imprivata OneSign, the physician can re-authenticate with a swipe of a fingerprint or tap of an ID badge—ensuring that the physician is the one placing the order or ‘signing’ the e-prescription while simplifying the process.
