Digital Transformation in Healthcare – Read what the analysts say

As part of our series of papers on Digital Transformation in Healthcare markets, Imprivata has sponsored an IDC Technology Spotlight. Entitled; Security at Scale: How Security Changes with Healthcare Digital Transformation, May 2019, the white paper explores the relationship between security and Identity and Access Management (IAM) and the role that it plays in the developing digital transformation landscape in healthcare across European markets.

According to a recent IDC survey, 68% of European healthcare organisations still consider their approach to digital transformation siloed, and even when digital and enterprise goals are aligned, they are too focused on the short term.

The paper examines in detail the key part that information security plays and how that will evolve over time to meet the needs of the DX platform. It discusses the role of IAM solutions in proving identity and building trust, and specifically the four areas of:

  • Identification
  • Authentication
  • Authorisation and
  • Governance

The paper cites examples from Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust where IAM solutions have been implementing as part of DX projects.

Finally the paper gives some guidelines to keep in mind when choosing IAM vendors.
