HIPAA compliance

 

Ensure HIPAA compliance with single sign-on

For healthcare organizations, compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other regulations can be a significant drain on resources and budgets. Among other things, HIPAA compliance requires healthcare organizations to put mechanisms in place to control access to patient data, and this kind of password and access management infrastructure can be costly and complex. However, single sign-on (SSO) technology can simplify HIPAA compliance, but many solutions are difficult to implement and maintain, causing them to be costly to deploy and manage. For an SSO access solution that not only ensures HIPAA compliance but drives down help desk costs as well, a growing number of companies are turning to Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On.
