SailPoint Empowers Healthcare Organizations With Identity

New IdentityIQTM integration module expands coverage to Epic systems

 AUSTIN, July 26, 2017 – SailPoint, the leader in enterprise identity management, today introduced the SailPoint IdentityIQTM Integration Module for Epic. For healthcare organizations, an electronic health record (EHR) system like Epic is one of the most important applications to incorporate into a governance-based approach to managing identity. This new integration module allows Epic to be part of healthcare organizations’ unified and comprehensive approach to governing access to cloud and on-premises applications and data.

According to Jackie Brinkerhoff, Director of Product and Solution Marketing, “The digitization of healthcare has transformed the market and expanded the threat landscape significantly, making traditional measures for protecting healthcare data insufficient. With the advanced connectivity to Epic, IdentityIQ delivers automated governance over access, reducing errors in granting access to caregivers and other users who interact with patient data. This is the comprehensive approach to governing access that healthcare organizations need, and importantly, streamlines implementation of compliance controls and audit reporting.”

“We’re faced with three challenges as a healthcare organization today with having to manage an increasingly complex IT environment. The challenges we see are governing access to that environment by our diverse user population, addressing the growing data breach and insider threat risks, and adherence to a complex set of regulatory compliance requirements,” said James Landers, IAM Security Engineer for Integris Health. “With SailPoint’s identity management expertise, we are confident that our users have the right access to the applications and systems they need to deliver patient care. This has freed us up to focus on the bigger IT picture and on priorities like improved clinical and operational workflows, while infusing identity governance into our overall IT security strategy.”
