Imprivata wins national contract to supply access management to healthcare across Ireland



Digital identity company Imprivata, together with regional partner, PFH Technology Group, has won a national framework contract with Health Service Executive (HSE) to deliver Imprivata OneSign, an Enterprise Access Management solution, to healthcare organisations across Ireland.

The framework competition was conducted by Tallaght University Hospital on behalf of the HSE.

Health staff will now be able to instantly access clinical systems by entering their password once per shift and reauthenticating with a tap of their ID badge.

This will reduce the reliance on remembering complex passwords and associated stress for stretched clinicians, while improving security of sensitive patient data.

Daniel Johnston, MRes, RN, Sr Clinical Workflow Specialist & UK NHS Clinical Safety Officer at Imprivata said: “Connecting care systems through digital transformation can improve efficiency and satisfaction, making the day-to-day experiences of clinicians easier and more fulfilling.

“Breaking down the barriers to accessing technology with solutions such as single sign-on is a significant step forward for clinicians on the frontline.”

In a pilot study conducted by Tallaght University Hospital, Imprivata’s Enterprise Access Management solution has found to save up to 50 minutes per shift for busy clinical staff; time that can be redirected to patient care.

The Imprivata solution is part of the eHealth National Single Sign-on project and will be made available throughout the Irish public health and social care system to provide a digital workplace.

David Wall Chief Information Officer, Tallaght University Hospital, said: “Imprivata OneSign will enable clinical staff that need to access patient records electronically to move between computer systems without the need to log into solutions more than once.

Clinical staff will be able to move seamlessly between systems staying with the same patient, which provides the infrastructure to support effective clinical decision making.”
