Imprivata OneSign Spine Combined Workflow Plus
Virtual smartcard and NHS spine access management
Access to patient data needs to be supported by technology which optimises the clinicians' workflows and provides them with a positive user experience. However, the use of smartcards is often seen as an inconvenient step for clinicians as it forms an extra security barrier between them and providing patient care. Clinicians resort to alternative solutions to enhance their workflows such as leaving smartcards in machines, sharing login credentials or using generic logins. This creates risks in terms of information governance, particularly through the lack of an audit trail.
Imprivata OneSign Spine Combined Workflow Plus with virtual smartcard secures patient data by combining NHS Spine access with convenient two-factor authentication and a virtual version of the NHS smartcard. The Imprivata Virtual Smartcard solution further enhances existing Spine capabilities and coupled with other Imprivata solutions like single sign-on, Imprivata Confirm ID, and Imprivata Identity Governance, provides NHS organisations with a complete identity and authentication management solution.
Imprivata OneSign users will be able to seamlessly integrate the Imprivata virtual smartcard solution into their existing clinical workflows and deploy rapidly, at scale.

Imprivata Virtual Smartcard: A smarter approach to NHS Spine-enabled access
A secure, cardless solution that will remove the challenges in using smartcards and readers, and the challenges of remote working and remote administration.

There is no requirement for additional hardware or smartphones. Virtual smartcards will support the Imprivata multifactor authentication you use today.
