PFH together with, digital identity company Imprivata, has won a national framework contract with the Health Service Executive (HSE) to deliver Imprivata OneSign, an Enterprise Access Management solution, to healthcare organisations across Ireland.
The framework competition was conducted by Tallaght University Hospital on behalf of the HSE. In a pilot study PFH conducted with Tallaght University Hospital, Imprivata’s Enterprise Access Management solution has shown to save up to 50 minutes per shift for busy clinical staff; time that can be redirected to patient care.
Commenting on the project, Paul Silke, Client Director at PFH said “This is a clear example of a digital transformation solution that ultimately provides tangible benefits to patients. The Imprivata Single Sign On (SSO) solution is simple and clever, allowing healthcare professionals to save valuable time and to help them to focus on the key tasks at work.”
David Wall, Chief Information Officer, Tallaght University Hospital, said: “Imprivata OneSign will enable clinical staff that need to access patient records electronically to move between computer systems without the need to log into solutions more than once. Clinical staff will be able to move seamlessly between systems staying with the same patient, which provides the infrastructure to support effective clinical decision making.”
The initial roll-out will involve:
• Tallaght University Hospital
• Beaumont Hospital
• Rotunda Hospital
• Galway University Hospital
• Cork University Maternity Hospitals
• National Forensic Mental Health Service
