Single sign on

Imprivata OneSign offers a single sign-on (SSO) solution that enables clinicians to spend less time with technology and more time with patients. By eliminating the need to repeatedly type usernames and passwords, Imprivata OneSign allows clinicians to quickly and securely access clinical and administrative applications, which streamlines clinical workflows and drives EHR adoption.

Clinicians regularly need to remember eight or more application passwords. Security best practises require those passwords be unique, strong, and frequently changed. In the absence of an SSO solution, it's no wonder clinicians write passwords down, stick them to the monitor, or just forget them.

Save time and increase productivity

Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On addresses access challenges by significantly reducing clicks and eliminating the need to remember or enter application usernames and passwords. Proven in healthcare environments around the world, Imprivata OneSign can be used with all types of applications, saving care providers 45 minutes every shift, improving satisfaction levels, and driving EHR adoption.

Optimised clinical workflows enable faster access to patient information and enhanced care delivery. An effective SSO implementation and centralised password management system simplifies compliance without negatively impacting care providers or IT staff.

Key Solution Features

SSO All Applications

cross-device communications

Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On provides support for all types of applications including terminal, client server, and cloud-based applications.

Drag and Drop SSO Profiling

cross-device communications

The Imprivata Application Profile Generator is a simple GUI based tool for creating application SSO profiles. With no coding necessary, organisations can profile and deploy new applications quickly and easily.

Password Policy Automation

cross-device communications

Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On contains powerful password administration options. For example, administrators can automate application password change processes removing the task entirely from the care provider. This keeps the provider focused on patient care, not on trying to come up with, and remember, a new password that meets your organisation strong password requirements. The password format can be set to your organisation’s requirements with policies able to be deployed to specific users or groups.

Support for Virtualized Applications

cross-device communications

Imprivata OneSign provides SSO support for virtual desktops and applications including Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp desktops and applications, VMware Horizon View, VMware ThinApp, and Microsoft RDS.

Application Auto-Launching

cross-device communications

Applications can be automatically launched, or closed, when a user signs in, depending on their location in the hospital. By automatically starting the required application s and signing providers in, more time is given to patient care, and less time spent navigating the technology.

No Click Access

cross-device communications

Combine SSO with strong authentication to enable providers to access their desktops and applications with just the tap of a badge or swipe of a fingerprint.


cross-device communications

Instead of being required to remember and repetitively enter usernames and passwords, clinicians simply tap their badge to the proximity card reader, and they gain access to the systems they need. For hospital IT teams, Imprivata proximity card readers reduce complexity and simplify management by creating a single source for purchase, support, and maintenance of their complete authentication solution. They support a broad range of card types and provide the ability to support multiple card types on a single reader.

cross-device communications

Security and compliance requirements mandate that passwords be complex and difficult to guess, so they are often forgotten. This leads to calls to the helpdesk, which frustrates providers, impedes the patient care process and adds cost for IT. Imprivata OneSign Self-Service Password Management addresses this challenge by giving organisations a simple, easy-to-implement solution that helps clinicians quickly and securely reset their passwords — without the need to call the help desk.


cross-device communications

Imprivata OneSign fingerprint biometric identification gives care providers secure and easy access to desktops and applications with just a swipe of a fingerprint, eliminating the need to remember or enter usernames and passwords. By streamlining the authentication process and positively identifying and authenticating users by their fingerprint, Imprivata OneSign simplifies clinical workflows so more time can be spent with patients.
