Imprivata introduces IAM cloud platform for healthcare support by Microsoft

First phase of collaboration extends enterprise-wide single-sign-on to the cloud

Healthcare IT security company, Imprivata, has announced plans to unlock the power of the cloud for clinical users by creating the first end-to-end Identity and Access Management (IAM) Cloud Platform for healthcare in collaboration with Microsoft.

The platform, anchored by Imprivata’s leading solution portfolio and the world-class scale and security of Microsoft’s cloud identity platform, Azure Active Directory, will address the unique challenges that healthcare customers face along the digital transformation journey.

“We’re delighted to announce this strategic collaboration with Microsoft and to introduce the Imprivata IAM Cloud Platform, which first brings the simplicity of Tap-In and Tap-Out to the cloud, and seamlessly supports access to Microsoft cloud applications like Microsoft Office 365 and more for our 1,945 healthcare customers,” said Gus Malezis, president and chief executive at Imprivata.

“Furthermore, the platform leverages the existing Imprivata investments of our joint customers, enhancing the ROI of their current and future technology investments.”

As the first phase of the collaboration, Imprivata has launched Healthcare Seamless SSO enterprise single sign-on into on all shared clinical workstations and mobile devices.

Healthcare Seamless SSO extends the Tap-In and Tap-Out capabilities of Imprivata OneSign, allowing badge-tap access into Office 365 and any application connected to Microsoft Azure Active Directory, including the extensive catalogue of cloud-based applications in Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Healthcare Seamless SSO eliminates the need for clinical and non-clinical Microsoft users to repeatedly type usernames and passwords to access any programs and applications.

Leveraging Imprivata OneSign, Healthcare Seamless SSO can be used with all types of applications, saving care providers 45 minutes every shift, improving satisfaction levels, and driving EMR adoption.

The Imprivata platform is also purpose-built to enhance additional workflows, including electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS).
