Implementing a Successful Multifactor Authentication Strategy for Healthcare

Thursday, March 28th, 2019 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm CST

As healthcare contends with emerging security threats and new workflow regulations, multifactor authentication (MFA) is as important as ever. But there are unique challenges that must be considered when selecting a solution — the workflow must be efficient and transparent for users to avoid disruption to productivity.

And, there are specific clinical workflows that require MFA that must be considered as part of a broader strategy. In October, a new federal law was passed that mandates electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS) though Medicare Part D.

EPCS compliance must be a key strategic consideration, particularly because traditional MFA solutions cannot meet EPCS requirements.

Join this webinar to hear from Robert Lackey, MD, associate CMIO at WellSpan Health in South Central Pennsylvania, about how WellSpan leverages MFA to improve security and enable EPCS, as well as:

  • Tips on how to choose the right MFA solution for your organization
  • The benefits of having a centralized MFA solution for all workflows
  • Best practices for implementation of a MFA platform, including ensuring a comprehensive, DEA-compliant EPCS process
