In a recent release, Imprivata, a healthcare IT security company, announced that it will create an Identity and Access Management (IAM) Cloud Platform for healthcare in collaboration with Microsoft. The platform reportedly will be anchored by Imprivata’s solution portfolio and Microsoft’s cloud identity platform Azure Active Directory. The companies will seek to 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 CEO, 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 recently launched Healthcare Seamless SSO, enterprise single sign-on into on all shared clinical workstations and mobile devices.

“Imprivata has made great strides expanding on its proven, industry-leading solutions by integrating with Microsoft Azure Active Directory to help healthcare organizations leverage the cloud to lower costs,” said Chris Sakalosky, VP, US Health & Life Sciences, Microsoft. “This product integration with Imprivata OneSign is the exact type of technological solution that we’re proud to offer to our healthcare customers.”

Healthcare Seamless SSO seeks to eliminate the need for clinical and non-clinical Microsoft users to repeatedly type usernames and passwords to access any programs and applications. It is designed to be used with all types of applications and save care providers 45 minutes every shift, improving satisfaction levels, and driving EMR adoption.
