Imprivata Medical Device Access

Convenient, secure multifactor authentication for medical devices

Imprivata Medical Device Access enables fast, secure authentication for accessing and transacting with patient information on medical devices.

Interconnected medical devices are playing an increasingly valuable role in the delivery of patient care, enabling data to be captured, aggregated, transmitted, and analyzed in real time. For example, patient monitoring devices used to capture and facilitate the electronic exchange of vitals to a patient’s medical record.

With these advanced capabilities come new security threats, as each device represents a potential point of exposure of patient information. Requiring user authentication to access the device and/or transact with patient information improves security, but enforcing authentication though usernames and passwords creates a tedious, inefficient workflow that impedes the delivery of care. As a result, many organizations have elected not to enforce secure authentication, which leaves devices and patient data vulnerable.
