EMR and Health IT News - Northgate Managed Services and Imprivata Partnership Delivers Single Sign-On to NHS Scotland

In support of its “Better Health, Better Care” initiative, a strategy and action plan established by the Scottish Government in 2007, NHS Scotland wanted to remove unnecessary cost, delays and better manage the workflow complexity associated with accessing electronic patient data. Building the best security was also a key priority to help protect the increasing volumes of sensitive information while allowing for maximum clinician-patient service improvement. After Northgate and Imprivata delivered a successful pilot ahead of schedule, NHS Scotland worked with Trustmarque through the tender process to secure a country-wide agreement to include licenses for Imprivata’s OneSign, services, and five years of maintenance and support.
