HIPAA Compliance

Ensure HIPAA compliance with Single Sign-On


For healthcare organizations, compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other regulations can be a significant drain on resources and budgets. Among other things, HIPAA compliance requires healthcare organizations to put mechanisms in place to control access to patient data, and this kind of password and access management infrastructure can be costly and complex. However, Single Sign On (SSO) technology can simplify HIPAA compliance, but many solutions are difficult to implement and maintain, causing them to be costly to deploy and manage. For an SSO access solution that not only ensures HIPAA compliance but drives down Help Desk costs as well, a growing number of companies are turning to Imprivata® OneSign® Single Sign-On.


Imprivata provides innovative SSO for HIPAA compliance


The OneSign Platform®-- Imprivata's award-winning appliance-based solution for employee access management - includes OneSign Single Sign-On that enables healthcare organizations to easily and affordably address HIPAA compliance requirements. OneSign makes users' lives easier by removing the responsibility of remembering and periodically changing multiple passwords, and it increases the effectiveness of security controls required for HIPAA compliance. As an appliance-based solution, OneSign is easy to install, configure and deploy, and requires no scripting or changes to applications or directories.

Policy can be quickly and easily set at the user, group or machine level for greater security regardless of the environment where patient data is accessed.
