Imprivata expands commitment to NHS with Identity Governance integration with NHSmail



Imprivata has announced that Imprivata Identity Governance now supports the provisioning of NHSmail accounts in the NHS England shared central tenant to reduce manual and repetitive workloads when on- and off-boarding staff.

The integration expands Imprivata’s continued commitment to address the critical challenges of frontline staff at NHS organisations.

This new capability enables organisations to fully manage the NHSmail account lifecycle, effectively reducing manual workloads by transforming the way NHS organisations manage identity and access controls.

Mark McArdle, Imprivata Chief Products and Design Officer, said:”Safeguarding PHI, complying with regulations, and managing access to critical systems is challenging -to say the least- with manual workflows and processes.

“We deeply understand the complexities of the NHS.

“This integration with the NHSmail shared tenant represents a significant milestone in our commitment to both the NHS and our customers by alleviating manual burdens and enabling healthcare workers to focus on providing secure and efficient patient care.”

NHSmail is the national email and collaboration service for health and social care in England, allowing NHS staff and clinicians to share information securely and collaborate with other health and care practitioners.

Around 1.7m NHS users in England rely on NHSmail every day to support their initiatives in the delivery of patient care.

This integration with the NHSmail shared central tenant enables organisations to fully manage the NHSmail account lifecycle, from account provisioning through account updates to eventual account expiry.

Identity Governance has already been deployed to many NHS organisations for provisioning from the NHS ESR and other data sources into Active Directory, the electronic health record (EHR), as well as clinical applications.

Identity Governance also allows organisations to create NHS email in private Microsoft Office 365 tenants.

Other capabilities include:

  • Automate control of new records being added for NHSmail provisioning
  • Eliminate excessive IT resources spent on tedious governance tasks
  • Provide fast and efficient same-day access to NHSmail and require verification during provisioning
  • Govern the identity and access lifecycle to control the entire process of access for joiners, movers, and leavers
  • Enable approval workflows that validate key access assignment prior to automatic provisioning
  • Certify active users to ensure appropriate access is verified on a regular basisUtilise auditing and compliance tools to gain visibility and ensure the right users have all necessary access privileges
  • Reduce human error with automated processes that efficiently improve security by automating manual tasks and proving compliance through reports of those automated processes.
