Tools4ever Identity and Access Management Solutions Implemented at Several Healthcare Facilities
LYNBROOK, New York – Jan. 30, 2014 — Tools4ever, the worldwide market leader in identity and access management solutions, announced today that it has implemented its solutions at several additional healthcare facilities in the US during the fourth quarter, ending December 2013.
Tools4ever implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) and Self Service Password Management (SSRPM) at several healthcare facilities during the quarter. Among the organizations to add Tools4ever access management components to enhance security, manage user accounts and eliminate password issues include:
Union General Hospital is in Blairsville, Georgia, and is one of the most modern and progressive facilities in the state. The organization consists of a dialysis center, wellness center and nursing home.
New York Presbyterian is a university hospital in New York City, and is one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive facilities with more than 2,600 beds. The hospital’s 6,020 affiliated physicians and more than 19,600 staff provide state-of-the-art inpatient, ambulatory and preventive care in all areas of medicine at six major centers.
“Healthcare’s IT leaders continue to take steps to secure access and ensure that they are easily meeting audit and regulation needs because of strict reform and regulations,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever-East. “Healthcare organizational leaders also are taking steps to automate 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.”
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.
In addition, SSPRM can add additional benefits by allowing 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 it themselves and get back to work.
Tools4ever also offer Enterprise Single Sign-On Manager (E-SSOM) that can be paired with UMRA 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.
