Product and features

STREAMLINED IDENTITY PROOFING AND ACCESS CONTROL

To enable EPCS, the DEA requires confirmation of the identity of all providers authorized to prescribe controlled substances. Imprivata Confirm ID streamlines the identity-proofing process offering both an institutional and individual identity proofing solution. Imprivata Confirm ID also supports the necessary access control measures required for DEA-compliant identity-proofing, ensuring that only individuals legally authorized to sign controlled substance prescriptions are allowed to do so.

SUPERVISED ENROLLMENT

Imprivata Confirm ID allows organizations to enroll providers once they have been sufficiently identity-proofed. This includes enrolling their credentials to align with the two-factor authentication modalities they are permitted to use for EPCS. 

FLEXIBLE TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS FOR EPCS

 

Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS supports the most comprehensive range of innovative, convenient, and DEA-compliant two-factor authentication modalities, including Hands Free Authentication, which automatically provides fast, convenient, and secure multi-factor authentication, FIPS-201 approved finger print biometrics, and push token notification. With Imprivata Confirm ID, organizations have the flexibility to select the two-factor authentication option that best fits provider workflow requirements based on how, when and where electronic prescribing will take place. At the time of prescribing the prescriber is only prompted for what is available and allowed. A must have for provider adoption and satisfaction.

Fastest, most convenient two-factor authentication

Hands Free Authentication is the fast, convenient, and secure solution for EPCS that automatically completes the second factor of a two-factor authentication by remotely retrieving the second factor from the prescriber’s locked mobile phone. Hands Free Authentication transforms authentication workflows when used with fingerprint biometrics, as there is no need to enter a password, or type an OTP from a token. Instead the prescriber can simply scan their finger and keep their mobile phone in their pocket. This workflow provides unparalleled convenience while also reducing the risks of potential infection from handling multiple devices. Additionally, when fingerprint biometrics are not available (for example, when the prescriber is using a tablet or laptop) the prescriber can simply enter their password and use Hands Free Authentication. The speed and convenience of Hands Free Authentication minimizes the disruption of clinical workflows, increases provider satisfaction, and further drives EPCS adoption - all while providing IT with greater flexibility.

COMPREHENSIVE AUDITING AND REPORTING

Imprivata Confirm ID offers detailed reporting capabilities to establish a secure, auditable chain of trust for the entire EPCS process. Imprivata Confirm ID helps organizations demonstrate and prove compliance with DEA and state-level EPCS requirements.
