Press for Imprivata

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.
