UMass Memorial Health Care Selects the Imprivata Security and Identity Platform to Combat Prescription Drug Abuse and Improve Clinical Workflow Efficiency

As opiate abuse climbs across the country, UMass Memorial commits to early adoption of EPCS to fight the epidemic through technology
UMass Memorial will deploy Imprivata's secure signing for EPCS and single sign-on capabilities to allow for seamless integration with the hospital's new Epic electronic health record

Worcester and Lexington, Mass. - June 14, 2016 - Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, today announced that UMass Memorial Health Care has selected the Imprivata security and identity platform to enable fast, secure electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) and improve authentication and access workflows with their new Epic electronic health record system. UMass Memorial is deploying multiple products from the Imprivata security and identity platform including Imprivata Confirm ID™ for EPCS and Imprivata OneSign®. Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS effectively reduces fraud, drug diversion, and doctor shopping by providing clinicians with a secure platform to efficiently prescribe opiates electronically while meeting DEA requirements. Imprivata OneSign will help ensure secure and convenient access to the Epic electronic health records platform.

"We sought a new technology platform that could provide added security without increasing the administrative workload on our clinical staff, and we're happy to have found it through our partnership with Imprivata," shared Eric Alper, MD, vice president and chief clinical informatics officer for UMass Memorial Health Care. "We are also committed to combatting the current opioid abuse epidemic in this country, which has hit Massachusetts particularly hard. Technology like Imprivata Confirm ID will allow us to ensure that secure, safe electronic prescribing methods are utilized across our health system along with adding increased security to our core IT systems."

Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS delivers the industry's most comprehensive platform for provider identity proofing, supervised enrollment of credentials, two-factor authentication, and auditing and reporting to help healthcare organizations meet the DEA requirements for EPCS. By integrating directly into leading EHRs and e-prescribing applications, and simplifying two-factor authentication through Hands Free Authentication, push token notification, and other DEA-compliant solutions, Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS simplifies the EPCS workflow to drive provider adoption and improve patient care.

"EPCS has always been a challenge for hospitals to implement because existing modalities for two-factor authentication have been time consuming, challenging, and not well integrated into provider workflows," said Omar Hussain, President and CEO of Imprivata. "Not only does the Imprivata security and identity platform integrate directly into existing clinical access and e-prescribing workflows, but it also gives providers fast, convenient two-factor authentication that meets DEA requirements."

EPCS is allowed in all 50 states and several, including New York and Maine, have passed legislation to mandate it. Since New York mandated EPCS with the New Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing (I-STOP) law in March, the state has 66% of total prescribers enabled to electronically prescribe controlled substances and 84% are already electronically prescribing in general, according to Surescripts. In addition, 95% of New York pharmacies are able to accept prescriptions for controlled substances.

Mr. Hussain continued, "While Massachusetts has yet to make EPCS a requirement, we feel states are now increasingly looking at EPCS as a way to help combat opiate abuse as quickly as New York State has."

In addition to enabling EPCS with Imprivata Confirm ID for EPCS, UMass Memorial Health Care will implement Imprivata OneSign to help drive adoption of their new EHR platform, protect sensitive patient information, and increase overall efficiency. Care providers need to authenticate their identity an average of 70 times a day, and are prompted each time to enter a username and password, which inevitably slows down the care process and distracts doctors and nurses. Imprivata OneSign will allow UMass Memorial clinicians to securely access the hospital's new Epic EHR and improve clinician workflows by providing an end-to-end password management solution that incorporates single sign-on, authentication management, and virtual desktop roaming. Providers will simply tap a badge or swipe a fingerprint to gain access to patient information.

Imprivata Launches New Patient Identification Platform to Address Increasing National Medical Identity Theft and Improve Patient Safety

Imprivata PatientSecure® Positively Identifies Patients and Securely Matches them to their Unique Medical Record Using Cutting-Edge Palm Vein Biometrics

Lexington, Mass. - August 25, 2015 - Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, today launched Imprivata PatientSecure®, an innovative positive patient identification solution that uses palm vein biometrics to create a one-to-one link between patients and their correct medial record in their provider's electronic health record (EHR) system. Patient misidentification is a growing national problem-on average seven to 10 percent of patients are misidentified when their medical records are accessed. In addition, medical identity theft impacted more than 2 million Americans in 2014 and is growing 22 percent per year. In April, Imprivata acquired HT Systems of Tampa, Fla. and its PatientSecure positive patient identification solution, which has identified more than 22 million patients across more than 350 hospitals and thousands of affiliated clinics.

"Patient misidentification is fast becoming one of the biggest challenges facing care delivery organizations as they grapple with the growing need to combat increased attempts at identity theft and insurance fraud while also trying to reduce duplicate medical records and patient identification mistakes," said David Wiener, general manager, Imprivata PatientSecure Products Group. "As our healthcare system continues to digitize, enabling care delivery organizations to leverage a simple and secure identification platform is critical to enhancing the patient experience and addressing the growing medical identity theft and insurance fraud nationally."

Imprivata PatientSecure addresses the increasing need to accurately identify patients by matching individuals and their digital health record with a simple scan of hand to capture the unique palm vein pattern of a patient. The solution directly integrates with leading healthcare information systems and helps improve patient safety and satisfaction, eliminate duplicate medical records and overlays, drive revenue cycle efficiency, and safeguard against identity theft and insurance fraud. By leveraging its sales, marketing and engineering expertise, Imprivata is accelerating investment to expand the development and adoption of the Imprivata PatientSecure solution globally as providers look to address critical patient identification issues.

"Since deploying our palm vein biometric identification platform, we have significantly reduced registration errors and lowered our duplicate medical record rate to 0.11 percent of our patient census, which is 80 times better than the national average. Along with garnering positive feedback and compliance from patients using the solution we have also experienced improvement in our front-end patient registration process, which has enhanced our overall revenue cycle management operation," said Craig Richardville, Chief Information Officer of Carolinas Healthcare System, one of the nation's leading healthcare organizations with more than 900 care locations throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.

In June 2015 testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions - in a hearing on Health Information Exchange: A Path Towards Improving the Quality and Value of Health Care for Patients - Mr. Richardville gave expert testimony on his organization's early adoption of palm vein biometric identification technology and the positive impact it has had on improving patient identification, security, and safety.

Imprivata PatientSecure is designed to make the patient enrollment process, check-in, and registration process fast and easy, while providing patients with security and protection of their privacy. The solution's palm vein scanner is not intrusive to patients, making it an ideal form of identification at any point in the care process. When deployed with a self-service kiosk solution, Imprivata PatientSecure further reduces wait times and helps improve patient satisfaction measures such as HCAHPS scores that impact hospital's Meaningful Use targets.

Hyland Software supports charity with implementation of document capture technology

mothers2mothers will use OnBase ECM solution as part of pilot HIV monitoring project

CLEVELAND - Keeping HIV-positive women and their children healthy is the mission of mothers2mothers (m2m), a non-governmental charitable organization focused on eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV. In order to better support this mission, m2m has chosen OnBase, Hyland Software's enterprise content management (ECM) solution, to manage, track and record its program data in South Africa. The organization started its project across five pilot sites and plans to deploy the project nationally by the end of the year. The project will utilize OnBase to efficiently track Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) data of mother-baby pairs.

It was a challenge for m2m to track the progress of the program because of the increasingly large amount of records generated through the PMTCT cascade. Often, forms were duplicated by the Mentor Mothers, the women employed by mothers2mothers. m2m sought a solution that would allow information, data and ongoing care regimens to be recorded, captured and tracked efficiently.

"HP recommended that we research Hyland's ECM solution to support this project. Because HP is one of our existing partners who understands our mission and the results we hope to accomplish, we trusted their suggestion," said Shungu Gwarinda, country director at m2m. "We chose OnBase because it will allow us to effectively track the progress of each mother's case and easily monitor data to find trends and locate vital information in seconds."

Using OnBase with HP scanners, data and forms are electronically captured, managed and accessible from one central repository. The OnBase Mobile solution enables access for Mentor Mothers to electronic forms via smart phones or tablets, from anywhere. m2m employees will be able to update and review documentation from the field, saving time, reducing the chance of content duplication and accurately measuring the effectiveness of the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV program.

"We are delighted to be working with m2m and supporting such a worthy cause," said James Longstaff, sales director, "m2m's OnBase solution will dramatically improve the outcomes by connecting Mentor Mothers with records in real-time, enabling faster care and guidance, showing that ECM is an important component in healthcare."

Johns Hopkins Health System is 100th healthcare provider to integrate OnBase with leading electronic medical record system

February 15, 2012

Hyland Software's ECM solution, OnBase, integrates with leading EMR enterprise-wide at Johns Hopkins Health System, including ambulatory, inpatient, clinical and administrative areas

CLEVELAND - Feb. 15, 2012 - Healthcare organizations are becoming more efficient and effective through technology, all in the name of creating a more connected patient care environment. But to have this connected environment, the systems that manage the information, especially the electronic medical record (EMR) and enterprise content management (ECM) solution, must work well together. Hyland Software, a leader in ECM for healthcare, has a proven integration for its OnBase ECM solution with the Epic EMR, and continues to demonstrate that the integration meets the needs of healthcare providers. Johns Hopkins Health System is the 100th organization to integrate OnBase with the Epic EMR.

"Features and functionality of a solution are important. But as healthcare providers are rethinking IT for the enterprise, they're also looking for vendors with solutions that are proven and have a reputation to back it up," said Susan deCathelineau, senior manager of healthcare solutions for Hyland Software. "Hyland has a tested, nimble ECM solution that continues to successfully integrate with the Epic EMR, as well as an incredible level of dedication to partnering with our customers for the life of their solution. This gives our customers confidence that they aren't just working with a vendor who is a leader in ECM, but one that understands their specific, ongoing needs."

As Johns Hopkins Health System grew to six hospitals, numerous outpatient centers and other clinical sites, EMRs were duplicated and its ECM system wasn't scaling well. To create an IT environment that could grow with the organization long-term, Johns Hopkins chose to convert to OnBase.

The organization will implement the EMR and ECM solution starting in the ambulatory departments at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Bayview Medical Center, as well as the Johns Hopkins Community physician sites. The solution will then be implemented throughout all inpatient and outpatient environments at Sibley Memorial and Howard County Hospital before rounding back to the remaining hospitals and inpatient environments. Eventually, OnBase will also be implemented in financial departments, integrating with the SAP ERP solution.

Today, more than 1,400 healthcare organizations use OnBase, and 800 of these integrate OnBase with their EMR or health information system, from Cerner to Allscripts to MEDITECH and more.
