Imprivata Unveils Digital Healthcare Identity Framework

In a recent announcement, Imprivata, a digital identity company for healthcare, introduced its new Digital Identity Framework for Healthcare, designed to be a unified, security- and efficiency-focused structure for managing identities across the healthcare delivery organization (HDO). The company says that this framework provides CISOs, CIOs, and other IT leaders with strategic guidance to drive Identity and Access Management (IAM) strategy, in addition to insights about how Healthcare’s unique considerations must govern solution choices.

“Imprivata’s Digital Identity Framework for Healthcare is a giant step forward from where most HDOs are,” said Art Ream, CISO, Cambridge Health Alliance. “A unified system like this one will avoid the security and efficiency gaps of single-point, non-cohesive approaches and is especially important as we plan for post-pandemic operations and fortify our identity and access management strategy based on increased remote care and rapid responsiveness to staffing shifts.”

The Imprivata Digital Identity Framework for Healthcare reportedly is structured according to certain categories required for a robust digital identity strategy that meets the demands of HDOs. The categories are: governance and administration, identity management, authorization, and authentication and access.

“Now, more than ever, our customers are challenged with navigating complex healthcare environments that demand a secure and efficient approach to IAM,” said Gus Malezis, President and CEO, Imprivata. “Our new framework shows our customers where existing IAM tools fit into a broader, more holistic approach focused on digital identities which are tantamount to efficient clinical workflows as well as rapid response to support remote workers, virtual care – and whatever unknowns the future may hold.”

The framework is designed to address and support the requirements of healthcare, and design factors reportedly were drawn from customer feedback and industry insights from H-ISAC, Microsoft, Gartner, KuppingerCole, and Forrester.
