Healthcare-focused digital identity company Imprivata has announced a new partnership with Microsoft that aims to support healthcare services and advance clinical mobility.
The partnership will include Imprivata Identity Governance, hosted in Microsoft Azure, as well as the Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-on (SSO) solution integrated with the Azure Active Directory (Microsoft’s identity service), which will provide access to all apps including Microsoft Teams on Surface devices.
Additionally, Imprivata announced that it is Microsoft Co-sell ready, meaning it is able to collaborate with Microsoft on joint selling opportunities.
“We’re excited to take our collaboration with Microsoft to the next level as we continue to advance healthcare’s digital transformation through tight integrations that fit the unique needs of our hybrid healthcare customers,” said Wes Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Imprivata. “We’re also honored to be Microsoft Co-sell ready and sell alongside a world-class cloud platform and security leader who enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud.”
The Imprivata Identity Governance compliance with the Azure environment as a result of the partnership will help facilitate healthcare’s move to the cloud, and help ensure the right users have access to the right on-premises and cloud apps.
The integration of OneSign with the Azure Active Directory aims to enable a seamless SSO experience for all apps, allowing clinicians to use one set of credentials for access from any device, including those that are shared, as some workstations and mobile devices tend to be in a clinical setting.
“As shared mobile devices become a mainstay at many points of patient care, we’re pleased to work with Imprivata to continue to improve the security of Surface devices and mobile and web applications like Microsoft Teams, without disrupting clinical workflows,” said Andrea McGonigle, U.S. National Managing Director, Microsoft Health & Life Sciences. “We look forward to working with Imprivata as we continue to innovate to provide joint digital identity solutions that are purpose-built for hybrid healthcare.”
Founded in 2002 in Lexington, Massachusetts, last year Imprivata partnered with Verato to create PatientSecure, a biometric patient identification system that uses an individual’s palm vein biometric data to match them to their health records.
