Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Healthcare

Protect medical confidentiality from cyber attacks by unauthorized users

Protect medical confidentiality from cyber attacks by unauthorized users with Evidian IAM

Protect your personal data, Electronic Health Records, professional smartcards and more. Access to health information must be increasingly easy and fast, without compromising confidentiality in any way.

Evidian offers identity and access management solutions that are tailored to the specific requirements of healthcare establishments (high staff turnover, 24/7 operations). Our solutions simplify the allocation and use of access rights so that doctors can give patients their full attention. In addition, they can help achieve compliance with regulations such as the HIPAA Security Rule

Evidian can provide a shared Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution dedicated to large Hospital Groups. This architecture is adapted to small facilities by rationalizing infrastructure costs and answers the transversal needs (shared resources between entities) of Hospital Groups.

Nantes University Hospital using Evidian solution won the European Identity & Cloud Award "Best Identity and Access Management Project". Discover more about this project in the KuppingerCole report.

Confidentiality of medical files

As roles are pre-defined on the basis of the duties and departments of each staff member, you can be sure that only authorised staff can access the right information at the right time. Evidian solutions guarantee that you can meet the confidentiality requirements for medical ethics and the CNIL (French Data Protection Agency).

Vital information available 24/7

With Evidian solutions, doctors are identified using a smartcard or badge – no password is needed on any terminal. If the card or electronic badge is lost, Evidian offers a range of secure backup identification solutions for immediate emergency access. For example, the most recent Evidian innovation, QRentry, lets you unlock a session with your smartphone using a QR code.

Mobile use

In hospitals and elsewhere, there is a trend for increasing use of personal mobile terminals. Evidian solutions give doctors fully secure access to patient information from their medical surgery, using their smartphone or tablet. These solutions can also be used for establishing mobile sessions for bedside access in hospitals.

Personal responsibility

For interns, placement students, external staff, staff-managed devices, etc. Ensuring that individuals are held responsible for their actions means that personal access to information must be granted for each level of authorisation. By using automated identity management solutions, Evidian can rapidly deliver customised access rights. Kiosk mode allows the management of fast user switching on multi-user terminals, ensuring both efficiency and confidentiality.

Regulatory compliance

Hospitals are responsible for the confidentiality of medical data. With Evidian solutions, not only you can divide up access rights, but also rapidly assess the measures taken and present an access record for checks and audits.

Claude Salomon, Head of Information System. "The Evidian solution brings us substantial benefits on a daily basis. Security is ensured with strong authentication and name-based access to kiosk sessions. Clinicians have quickly adopted the system. Their work is made easier by the roaming session and SSO access to applications, so they have more time to dedicate to their patients. "

Steve Nicholson, IT services manager. "The Enterprise SSO solution has been so popular with staff that they are actually demanding to be signed up to it. It makes their jobs considerably easier and more efficient and also encourages a greater level of security when it comes to the use of healthcare applications. It will also make our job easier as we start to deal less and less with password related problems – we expect it to cut IT helpdesk calls by around 70%."

Systel - A software integrator deploys Evidian's SafeKit high-availability solution in firefighter and emergency medical services call centers

English French

Marc Pellas, CEO. "SafeKit perfectly meets the needs of a software vendor. Its main advantage is that it brings in high availability through a software option that is added to our own multi-platform software suite. This way, we are not dependent on a specific and costly hardware clustering solution that is not only difficult to install and maintain, but also differs according to client environments. With SafeKit, our firefighter call centers are run with an integrated software clustering solution, which is the same for all our customers, is user friendly and for which we master the installation up to after-sales support."

Healthcare Flyer - The prescription for identity and access management headaches

English French German

Every day, thousands of your employees use dozens of applications. This means hundreds of support calls for lost or forgotten passwords. Clinicians must log in and out of programs one by one, wasting patient time. Incomplete or inaccurate audit trails result in poor information governance.

Zithaklinik: Convenience for access control


Tradition and modernity come together in the Zithaklinik in Luxembourg City. Founded in 1924 by the Congregation of Tertiary Carmelites, the General Hospital relies on the latest security technologies as part of its IT service management project. Evidian ultimately won the contract because this manufacturer, according to IT manager Jacques Federspiel, was the most convincing: "Complete and forward-looking solutions, flexible implementation options, professional local support and extensive industry experience in the field of hospitals, there were good arguments, which counted for the Zithaklinik,” he summarizes.
