Imprivata collaborates on biometric SSO and digital identity for clinical mobility with Microsoft
Imprivata has entered new digital identity collaborations with Microsoft to drive clinical mobility by providing seamless access with Imprivata Identity Governance hosted in Microsoft Azure, and Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-on (SSO) integrated with the Microsoft identity service (Azure Active Directory), the company announced.
In November 2019, Imprivata upgraded OneSign biometric application security for seamless, more secure fingerprint biometric access to on-premise and cloud applications in hybrid environments pertaining to healthcare organizations.
The two companies will co-sell the technology and will work on business development opportunities.
“We’re excited to take our collaboration with Microsoft to the next level as we continue to advance healthcare’s digital transformation through tight integrations that fit the unique needs of our hybrid healthcare customers,” said Wes Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Imprivata, in a prepared statement. “We’re also honored to be Microsoft Co-sell ready and sell alongside a world-class cloud platform and security leader who enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud.”
Imprivata Identity Governance for Microsoft Azure delivers support for hybrid healthcare customers and helps healthcare organizations boost access management security and achieve compliance.
Imprivata OneSign is now part of Azure Active Directory to provide seamless SSO from devices such as surface tablets, shared clinical workstations, and shared mobile devices. A single set of credentials is now required for healthcare apps linked to Imprivata OneSign and for business applications connected to Azure AD.
“As shared mobile devices become a mainstay at many points of patient care, we’re pleased to work with Imprivata to continue to improve the security of Surface devices and mobile and web applications like Microsoft Teams, without disrupting clinical workflows,” said Andrea McGonigle, U.S. National Managing Director, Microsoft Health & Life Sciences, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to working with Imprivata as we continue to innovate to provide joint digital identity solutions that are purpose-built for hybrid healthcare.”
In March, InterSystems partnered with Imprivata to deliver a single sign-on solution for healthcare professionals to access the former’s TrakCare unified healthcare information solution that stores patient and clinical information.
