Single Sign On Technology
Single sign on technology solves password challenges
Passwords can be a nightmare for users. The average user has 12 - 15 application passwords that often change frequently in order to comply with password policy. To keep track of multiple passwords users often record passwords on scraps of paper left at the work station - diminishing the security that passwords are meant to ensure.
Single sign on technology promises to address password problems, improve productivity and reduce cost by giving users access to all applications after signing into the network just once. But some single sign on technologies don't live up to their promises - too often single sign on technology is expensive to buy and complex to deploy and manage. For single sign on technology that is non-intrustive, affordable and easy to manage, organizations the world over are turning to Imprivata.

Best Practices: Single Sign-On Drives Productivity, Security, and Adoption When Used with EHR at The Johns Hopkins Hospital
This report presents the implementation of single sign-on technology; examine the business issues addressed and the IT approach, the business goals and ROI from the project, and the business risk and situational complexity; and provide insight into the success and failures of and lessons learned from the implementation.
The overwhelming majority of direct patient care in the US today is delivered by nurses. Their time is at a premium, and as the most frequent users of the EHR, they’re also the most susceptible to losing valuable time each day having to repeatedly log into the EHR with usernames and passwords.
