LYNBROOK, New York – July 24, 2013 –Tools4ever, the worldwide market leader in identity and access management solutions, announced today the addition of new healthcare clients during the second quarter that have expanded access and security solutions. Among those to employ Tools4ever’s identity and access management solutions to securely manage user accounts and eliminate password issues include:
- Patient First — Glen Allen, Virginia
- West Tennessee Health — Jackson, Tennessee
Patient First is a public healthcare system with 45 centers in the mid-Atlantic region. It offers both primary and urgent care services, providing a broad range of occupational health services.
West Tennessee Health is a public not-for-profit healthcare system. Modern Healthcare magazine, listed West Tennessee Healthcare as one of the top 10 largest public, not-for-profit healthcare systems in the U.S. It serves 18 counties in west Tennessee and employs more than 5,000 people, making it one of the region’s top employers.
“These organizations are amongst many others across the U.S. that seriously their commitment to identity and access management in the care setting,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever. “As reform and regulation continue to change the healthcare landscape, healthcare’s IT leaders continue to take steps to secure access to the data produced in the care setting.
“In addition, they also are automating their account management systems to allow users to have easier access to their own information, as well as to remove unnecessary burdens from their own IT departments,” Wiech said.
The organizations are expanding their identity and access management solutions with Tools4ever’s User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA), Self Service Password Management (SSRPM) and Enterprise Single Sign-On Manager (E-SSOM).
Tools4ever’s UMRA allows healthcare organizations to streamline their account management processes through auto provisioning, role-based access control and self-service and workflow management. With UMRA, healthcare organizations are able to easily and securely provision and de-provision accounts, make account changes and assign access controls, while ensuring compliance with all healthcare standards.
UMRA can be paired with Tools4ever’s E-SSOM for added benefits such as “Fast User Switching” and “Follow Me.” These additions allow users to quickly switch accounts on a workstation, or easily take their session to another workstation. This is ideal for care providers who share one PC amongst multiple users or who need to login at a number of locations.
SSPRM allows employees to work more efficiently, eliminating the need to contact the helpdesk to reset their passwords if they are locked out, and allow employees to securely reset passwords themselves and get back to work.
