Single Sign-On Access to HIPAA Compliant Messaging

By Pharma Tech Outlook | Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Fast and secure access to shared mobile applications and devices will take the friction out of care collaboration.

FREMONT, CA: Researchers have deduced that single sign-on (SSO) increases HIPPA compliance, enhances productivity among providers, and reduces workflow disruptions. According to research, SSO has reduced the time required by clinicians to gain access to electronic medical records and other data by 45 minutes per shift. As per a different study, the capability eliminated password-related IT help desk requests, which can significantly offset care delays and costs.

Realizing the advantages of SSO, DrFirst, a provider of e-prescribing, price transparency, and medication management solutions based in Rockville, MD, will offer SSO access to HIPAA compliant messaging. The new SSO capability is an extension of the collaboration in 2018 among DrFirst, Imprivata a healthcare IT security company, and Forward Advantage, which offers global healthcare IT solutions to enhance patient outcomes and workflows.

With the help of DrFirst Backline and Imprivata Mobile Device Access, fast and secure access to shared mobile applications and devices is possible. It will enable the users to securely communicate in real-time across patients and care team members without a load of manual logins to access Backline. With SSO workflows on mobile devices, healthcare organizations can also unlock the complete potential of these devices, and the applications, as a result of an efficient and fast workflow for clinicians, while improving and maintaining security and audit ability. Imprivata Mobile Device Access offers real ROI to healthcare organizations as it allows them to optimize their investments without affecting the security of PHI or accessibility and usability for clinicians.

Users can also access Backline seamlessly on shared personal or clinical mobile devices to communicate with patients, colleagues, caregivers, and patients, without the need to remember another login ID. By integrating Imprivata Mobile Device Access to enable SSO into Backline, it has become easier for customers to optimize the benefits of secure communication in the delivery of care.
