A new identity governance solution allowing organisations to easily manage user accounts has been launched by Imprivata in the UK.

Imprivata Identity Governance is an extension of the company’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution. It allows hospital trusts to control access to sensitive patient records throughout an employee’s lifecycle. User entitlement policies and controls can also be enforced so that compliance obligations including GDPR requirements are met.

Identity Governance allows trusts to:

  • Introduce precise role-based data access for all staff,
  • Increase productivity of clinical staff by removing barriers to technology,
  • Strengthen data security with faster threat evaluation and remediation,
  • Better manage compliance with analysis of usage data via dashboards,
  • Reduce IT costs by automating identity management and self-service portal for users.

Wes Wright, CTO at Imprivata said: “Managing access to sensitive patient information is critical for healthcare organisations. Clumsy security and slow to provision IT systems lead to frustration for frontline staff.

“When Imprivata Imprivata Identity Governance is combined with Imprivata OneSign Single Sign On, users have immediate access to all the data they need to do their job with the simple tap of a badge or token.  Streamlined login times save up to an hour per shift, giving back significant time to care, which has proven extremely popular with clinicians and aids user adoption.

“Precise role-based user accounts ensure that care providers can deliver high-quality care with immediate access to the right systems and patient information, and the audit trails to prove it. This timely access to the right systems at the right time removes barriers to technology, enabling clinicians to be more productive, confident that they are complying with all data regulations.”

The solution fully integrates with Imprivata’s IAM platform which includes OneSign, Single Sign On, Imprivata Confirm ID for Clinical Workflows, and Imprivata OneSign Spine Combined Workflow.

Imprivata Identity Governance can be seen at Digital Health Rewired, Olympia, London on 4 March at the company’s exhibition stand. To book an appointment email marketinguk@imprivata.com.
