Convenient, secure multifactor authentication for medical devices


Imprivata Medical Device Access enables fast, secure authentication for accessing and transacting with patient information on medical devices.

Interconnected medical devices are playing an increasingly valuable role in the delivery of patient care, enabling data to be captured, aggregated, transmitted, and analysed in real time.

With these advanced capabilities come new security threats, as each device represents a potential point of exposure of patient information. Requiring user authentication to access the device and/or transact with patient information improves security but enforcing authentication though usernames and passwords creates a tedious, inefficient workflow that impedes the delivery of care. As a result, many organisations bypass this, which leaves devices and patient data vulnerable.


Fast, efficient secure authentication for medical devices

Imprivata Medical Device Access addresses this challenge by enabling fast, convenient authentication. For medical devices already requiring user authentication, Imprivata improves efficiency by replacing the cumbersome manual entry of usernames and passwords with fast, automated authentication through the simple tap of a badge.

With Imprivata Medical Device Access, organisations can optimise their use of interconnected medical devices to improve the delivery of care while:

  • Maintaining security
  • Meeting regulatory compliance requirements
  • Ensuring efficiency for clinicians, giving them more time to focus on patient care
