Imprivata the healthcare IT security company, will demonstrate healthcare’s most comprehensive platform for authentication, access management, and patient identification at EHI Live 2016. Imprivata will show the latest innovations in single sign-on and authentication management that streamlines witness signing for drug administering and other authentication workflows as well as highlight new biometric positive patient identification technology that is helping healthcare providers globally prevent patient misidentification and improve patient safety.
During EHI Live, Graham Smith, Director, EMEA Professional Services at Imprivata will deliver a presentation about Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where they have achieved efficiencies for clinicians which includes fast, convenient authentication for witness signing and improved visibility and a more complete audit trail for prescribing, administering, and disposing of controlled drugs.
Carina Edwards, Senior Vice President Customer Experience at Imprivata commented; “At Imprivata our aim is to support CIOs and CCIOs in moving cyber security up the healthcare technology agenda, by making security as easy for providers and patients as possible. By providing a comprehensive platform for single sign-on, authentication management, and positive patient identification we are able to enhance and streamline clinical workflows, making access to patient information seamless, accurate and much quicker.”
At EHI Live, Imprivata will showcase a newly launched integration with JAC Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA) which:
- simplifies user authentication
- improves efficiency and auditing
- saves time
- strengthens security for all medication management workflows
Imprivata allows users to simply tap a proximity card to authenticate within the JAC EPMA system, replacing the manual entry of user name and passwords, which are often complex and can be easily forgotten. This gives care providers a fast and convenient workflow, enabling strong authentication and a seamless, consistent user experience
Imprivata PatientSecure, which was introduced earlier this year, is also on show at EHI Live. Its positive patient identification stops patient misidentification errors at the source. It creates a direct match between individual patients and their unique medical records across disparate clinical systems using palm vein biometric information. Once identified using Imprivata PatientSecure, the patient’s medical records are accessible to the care team immediately, ensuring that the best possible care can be delivered.
