North East London NHS Foundation Trust deploys Imprivata 

North East London NHS Foundation Trust has deployed Imprivata OneSign® Single Sign-On to speed up access to essential clinical applications whilst still maintaining security integrity.

The solution, supplied via Imprivata reseller CDW, provides medical staff with fast, safe, and secure No Click Access® to applications using their employee smart cards. Password fatigue was a growing concern across the Trust with employee feedback forms revealing that 50 percent of staff admitted to having some form of password memory aid that was either visible or easily accessible. Since implementing Imprivata OneSign across the Trust, the ease of use has encouraged better cyber hygiene amongst employees and improved audit trails and data governance.

Following deployment to more than 8,000 members of staff, across 150 sites within the trust, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. David Haymes, Project Manager, North East London NHS Foundation Trust comments; “Once people saw how easy it was to access applications using Imprivata OneSign, we had little resistance. The impact was almost immediate; staff were no longer battling password fatigue but getting on with their day to day jobs without technology barriers. In feedback surveys, 81 percent of staff said the solution had made access to applications quicker and easier. This was a smoother transition than we had hoped.”
