Press for Imprivata

Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, today announced the results of its fourth annual online national survey examining IT trends in healthcare.

Thales, leader in information systems and communications security and Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider, announce that Thales nShield Solo hardware security modules (HSMs) have been integrated into Imprivata OneSign. Imprivata customers that have a requirement to follow high security best practices in the area of encryption and key management now have a one-stop solution to meet their needs.

Healthcare organizations have recently been forced to reexamine HIPAA and HITECH mandates as a result of the growing risk of data breaches, increased audits and the enforcement of higher penalties for non-compliant companies. In an effort to achieve patient confidentiality, today’s hospitals and healthcare organizations must identify and establish a security framework that ensures complete protection of each patient’s most private medical information, most frequently housed within electronic medical records (EMR).

With today’s clinicians constantly on the move, providing quick and secure access to electronic medical records (EMRs) is a top focus for hospitals nationwide. Memorial Healthcare, an Owosso, Michigan-based hospital named one of the nation’s Top 100 “Most Wired” Hospitals nine out of the past ten years, is a leader in implementing advanced technologies to ensure its clinicians have fast and secure access to the data they need in order to provide top quality patient care.
