Imprivata Confirm ID for Medical Devices
Imprivata Confirm ID™ for Medical Devices enables fast, secure authentication for accessing and transacting with patient information on medical devices.
Interconnected medical devices are playing an increasingly valuable role in the delivery of patient care, enabling data to be captured, aggregated, transmitted, and analysed in real time. For example, patient monitoring devices used to capture and facilitate the electronic exchange of vitals to a patient’s medical record.
With these advanced capabilities come new security threats, as each device represents a potential point of exposure of patient information. Requiring user authentication to access the device and/or transact with patient information improves security, but enforcing authentication though usernames and passwords creates a tedious, inefficient workflow that impedes the delivery of care. As a result, many organisations have elected not to enforce authentication, which leaves devices and patient data vulnerable.
Imprivata Confirm ID for Medical Devices addresses this challenge by enabling fast, convenient authentication. For medical devices already requiring user authentication, Imprivata Confirm ID improves efficiency by replacing the cumbersome manual entry of usernames and passwords with fast, automated authentication through the simple tap of a badge.
With Imprivata Confirm ID for Medical Devices, organisations can optimise their use of interconnected medical devices to improve the delivery of care while maintaining security and protecting patient information while ensuring efficiency for providers and gives them more time to focus on patient care.
