Most healthcare organizations use identity and access management tools, but few integrate them into a holistic digital identity strategy.

Why the disconnect? Because it’s hard to integrate such solutions — even if they help organizations manage the full life cycle of all identities.

Amidst COVID-19, healthcare organizations have had to onboard and adjust access for an increasingly decentralized and fluid workforce, deal with the proliferation of cloud-based applications and databases, and level up their security protocols.

Join Imprivata Chief Technology Officer Wes Wright and Northeast Georgia Medical Center Chief Information Officer Chris Paravate as they discuss the value of an organized approach to identity management and share best practices with healthcare CIOs and CISOs. They will:

  • Outline the ways healthcare organizations can use a digital identity framework to integrate their identity and access management tools.
  • Highlight the centrality of an integrated identity governance solution in managing clinical, non-clinical and even non-human identities.
  • Describe what the return on investment in identity management looks like now — and how it may continue to evolve amidst cybersecurity threats and health IT trends.
