Virtual desktop access

Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access

Make the best use of roaming desktops and care providers' time with Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access. Imprivata OneSign gives care providers fast and easy access to their Citrix- or VMware-based virtual desktops. By replacing repetitive, manual log-ins with automated processes, Imprivata OneSign helps providers obtain information more efficiently, so they can spend more time with patients.

Manual log-ins at each location in a facility disrupts workflows and hinders efficiency. Yet security and privacy requirements around patient data mandate that effective user authentication processes cover all types of access, including virtual.

Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access provides fast access to virtual desktops that ‘follow’ care providers as they move around a hospital, maintaining the state of their systems and applications as they change locations and devices.

That lets care providers leverage virtualization for more efficient care delivery while maintaining compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements.

No Click Access to roaming desktops

Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access integrates with Citrix and VMware environments to enable desktop roaming with just the tap of a badge. When implemented together with Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On, the combined solution can extend this keyboard-free access to all systems and applications. Fast, easy and effective, the system lets providers focus more on their patients and less on the technology they’re using to deliver care.

Strengthens HIPAA compliance

Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access helps hospitals and care providers safeguard patients’ Protected Health Information (PHI). Hospital IT teams can define and enforce HIPAA-compliant policies for activities, including frequent password changes, advanced authentication, and two-factor authentication for transactions such as Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and E-Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS). With Imprivata Virtual Desktop Access, hospitals can track access by user, making auditing and HIPAA reporting simple and fast.
