LYNBROOK, New York – Feb. 5, 2014 — Tools4ever, the market leader in identity and access management, has expanded its library of User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) connectors to connect with the EPIC healthcare application.
The UMRA connector enables healthcare organizations to make user account and access management changes in EPIC quickly and without error. This means that new employees can automatically be granted access to EPIC, depending on their roles, in a timely manner. When employment is terminated, staff will then be prevented from having access to the EHR system. Care organizations can thus achieve better compliance with legislation and regulations, such as HIPAA.
Authorizations and access also can be managed through the UMRA connector so that employees’ assigned specific rights within EPIC match the rights of those employees in the role-based access control (RBAC) authorization model within UMRA.
Many manual procedures can be replaced with this connector, allowing healthcare managers to have a better grasp of all employees’ access rights. User account and access management can be carried out more efficiently, and care organizations can easily achieve compliance with legislation and regulation.
“We developed the EPIC connector to meet the ever-evolving needs and requirements of healthcare organizations,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever – East. “The connection with EPIC drastically reduces the amount of time users spend on account management by seamlessly integrating with Active Directory and UMRA to minimize manual and repetitive tasks.”
A variety of care institutions have expressed interest in the UMRA – EPIC connector, which has been implemented successfully by several clients.
