Evidian healthcare customer CHUV to speak at EIC in Munich, Germany

PARIS – François-Pierre Regamey, CIO of Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV), a large Lausanne (Switzerland) university hospital and Evidian customer, will deliver a presentation at European Identity & Cloud Conference 2012 in Munich, Germany on April 19th 2012.

M. Regamey’s presentation will show how identity management takes a central part in CHUV’s strategic drive toward digital healthcare, as well as strategic and practical aspects of deploying identity management in a hospital. He will present the lessons learned, main recommendations and key success factors.

CHUV’s strategic plan calls for a strong development and integration of the hospital’s health information through the deployment of a hospital wide electronic patient record. Health personnel, including 1400 MDs, must access 200 applications from CHUV’s 8000 workstations. The growing role of IT in the quality of care creates confidentiality risks - therefore efficient identity management is mandatory to find a balance between security and ease of access.

The CHUV project required a technical implementation, but also a streamlining of the hospital’s authorization procedures. An important aspect was an inventory and redefinition of stakeholders, roles, authorizations rules and procedures. As a guideline, identity management must target the simplicity and speed of the hospital’s most common and critical processes, such as patient arrival, temporary health practitioner authorization and personnel move.

Based in Lausanne, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) is one of Switzerland’s largest university hospitals with over 1400 beds, 10300 employees and 4000 external consultants. See www.id-conf.com/sessions/1003 for session description.
