Identity Management for Healthcare Providers
SailPoint IdentityIQ is ideal for healthcare providers looking to manage access to systems and data more effectively. Our governance-based identity management solution is already addressing the challenges of one of America's top 10 integrated healthcare delivery networks and one of the nation's largest multi-specialty group practice systems. SailPoint has also helped secure one of the most comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) systems in the nation.
At SailPoint, we work collaboratively with healthcare providers to solve their compliance and provisioning issues, while reducing costs overall.
Protecting Patient Data
Healthcare providers are under increasing scrutiny around how they protect and secure access to patients' private healthcare information. As electronic healthcare records (EHR) become more pervasive, there's more and more need to actively manage access to patient data. This can be particularly daunting in large, multi-faceted provider organizations where individual users have multiple roles – from doctor to student to clinical researcher. It's nearly impossible for providers to keep track of user access and ensure that each individual has access to the proper systems to perform a specific function within the organization.
SailPoint IdentityIQ provides healthcare organizations with strong, governance-based controls for managing access to sensitive information enterprise-wide. At the same time, IdentityIQ simplifies both compliance and provisioning activities by automatically implementing an enterprise role model. Using roles enables large, complex healthcare organizations to manage access based on business function, rather than ad hoc assignment.
SailPoint's patent-pending approach uniquely classifies and manages identity risk at both the user and system levels. This pinpoints the areas of greatest risk and focuses preventive and detective controls for the greatest benefit to the organization.
Escalating Compliance Mandates
As recent changes to HIPAA/HITECH legislation have heightened regulatory requirements, healthcare organizations face significant challenges.
Issues include the relatively manual nature of identity management systems and controls, as well as the constant user churn across a wide variety of enterprise IT systems. Even the most basic identity compliance requirements – such as periodically certifying user access – can be almost impossible to execute with a high level of accuracy. That goes double for manually detecting and enforcing policy violations across multiple user personas in a very large healthcare provider organization.
SailPoint IdentityIQ helps healthcare providers manage cross-organizational compliance mandates quickly and cost-effectively. Expensive, inefficient manual processes are replaced with automated access certifications and real-time policy monitoring, which provides continuous detection and enforcement of separation-of-duty (SoD) and other access policy violations. And detailed business and technical reports make it easy to provide the documentation and demonstration auditors require.
