Single sign-on in hospitals

White paper thumbnail

Every day, healthcare employees and mobile users access multiple medical applications.

How can you facilitate, secure and audit these accesses? Can you enforce your security policy without penalizing your users' productivity? How do you make users self-reliant, therefore reducing password-related help-desk load?

With enterprise single sign-on (E-SSO), hospital employees need just one password—or their NHS CfH smart card—to access all their applications. This improves their effectiveness, reduces your help-desk costs and secures application access.

Want to increase your doctors' mobility? With the fast user switching feature, a doctor can requisition any station in the hospital, then log on with their CfH smart card and get instant access to their environment — without restarting the Windows session.

And while away (at home, at another location,...) your doctors still have easy access to their web applications, such as NHS Mail. The Mobile E-SSO feature extends single sign-on to any browser-equipped station in the Internet, securely.
