Digital Identities & Healthcare IAM: Balancing Efficiency in Clinical Workflows and the Need for Security & Privacy

Why Strong IAM Is Essential for the Business Efficiency of Healthcare Providers

IAM infrastructure is becoming increasingly critical to the business success of healthcare providers. This is driven in the first instance by digitization and connectivity of everything and the inevitable efforts of cyber-criminals to compromise the newly connected assets. At the same time, and especially in sectors like healthcare, whose business is based on the collection and use of lots of valuable consumer data, the public and governments are demanding more accountability for safeguarding and appropriate use of personal information.

Healthcare organizations cannot meet these challenges without effective and comprehensive IAM based on trusted digital identities. However, even an IAM solution that controls access to all the organization’s connected assets and provides a centralized view of user activity will fall short if it does not support the unique characteristics and requirements of the healthcare sector. Most important of all, healthcare providers need an IAM capability that doesn’t get in the way of their core business process: the clinical workflow.

In this KuppingerCole webinar we will discuss:

  • The business challenges of (large) healthcare providers
  • The essential IAM capabilities for healthcare providers
  • Ways to improve the clinical workflow
  • Recommendations on how to rapidly and efficiently mitigate the IAM challenges in healthcare

Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the business challenges of healthcare providers and look at which of the IAM capabilities are essential to overcome these.

In the second part of the webinar, Dr. Sean Kelly, Chief Medical Officer of Imprivata will deep-dive into how to improve various types of clinical workflows and provide recommendations on where healthcare providers should put their emphasis.


Dr. Sean Kelly is the Chief Medical Officer at Imprivata where he heads the company's Clinical Workflow Productivity team and advises on the clinical practice of healthcare IT security. In addition to serving as Imprivata CMO, Dr. Kelly practices medicine and teaches at Beth Israel Deaconess...
