Press for Imprivata

NHS Scotland has confirmed a purchase of a single sign-on and password reset (SSO/PR) solution to improve access to health systems, increase productivity and enhance data security for health workers across Scotland. The solution from Imprivata will provide No Click Access™ to the many patient systems that run in hospitals and health communities across Scotland.

Imprivata, Inc., the #1 single sign-on (SSO) and authentication management company for healthcare and other regulated industries, is helping agencies meet the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) mandate deadline by aiding in the implementation of a single, comprehensive access policy that allows or denies network access based on a user’s physical location, role, and/or employee status.

Each hospital loses an average $2 million a year in efficiency when complex log-in procedures slow or prevent access to electronic health record systems, according to a new report by the Ponemon Institute.

Imprivata® the #1 independent single sign-on (SSO) and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, announced today that 20 hospitals running MEDITECH have selected Imprivata OneSign® over the last six months. This growth has increased steadily as hospitals continue to select OneSign, a critical enabler for adopting electronic medical records (EMR) and meeting government requirements for meaningful use, for fast and secure access to patient records.
