Imprivata and PFH Technology Group win national contract to supply access management solution to healthcare services across Ireland
Imprivata and PFH Technology Group have won a national framework contract with Health Service Executive (HSE) to deliver the Imprivata OneSign Enterprise Access Management solution to healthcare organisations across Ireland.
The framework competition was conducted by Tallaght University Hospital on behalf of the HSE.
As a result, health staff will be able to instantly access clinical systems by entering their password once per shift and reauthenticating with just the tap of their ID badge, reducing the reliance on remembering complex passwords and the associated stress for stretched clinicians, while improving security of sensitive patient data.
This is a clear example of a digital transformation solution that ultimately provides tangible benefits to patients
In a pilot study conducted by Tallaght University Hospital, Imprivata’s Enterprise Access Management solution has shown 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 across the Irish public health and social care system to provide a digital workplace.
The initial roll-out will involve Tallaght University Hospital, Beaumont Hospital, Rotunda Hospital, Galway University Hospital, Cork University Maternity Hospitals, the National Forensic Mental Health Service Hospital, and the National Rehabilitation Hospital.
Breaking down the barriers to accessing technology with solutions such as single sign-on is a significant step forward for clinicians on the frontline
Daniel Johnston, senior clinical workflow specialist and 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.”
Paul Silke, client director at PFH Technology Group, added: “This is a clear example of a digital transformation solution that ultimately provides tangible benefits to patients.
“The Imprivata Single Sign On (SSO) solution is simple and clever, allowing healthcare professionals to save valuable time and to help them to focus on the key tasks at work."
