Alabama-based Health System Eliminates Multiple Password Problem With Single Sign-On and Context Management to Siemens and Other Key Clinical and

Business Applications

ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Baptist Health System, one of the largest healthcare systems in Alabama, has gone live with Sentillion's clinical workstation solution, Vergence(R). To date, all the intensive care units of its largest hospital are up and running with single sign-on (SSO) and context management, and deployment to more than 3,000 clinicians system-wide is expected to be completed by the end of 2008.

Baptist Health System selected Sentillion to help eliminate multiple passwords with SSO and improve clinical workflow by context management-enabling its clinical and business applications. Physicians at Baptist Health System typically work with at least five different software vendors -- including Siemens Medical Solutions, Novius and Cerner among others -- while nurses may work with upwards of 10 applications regularly.

Deploying Vergence contributes significantly to Baptist Health System's physician engagement objective, according to John West, the network's chief technology officer. "Over the years, caregivers have voiced frustration about having to remember multiple log-in names and passwords for the various software applications they use. We don't want them to spend their valuable time struggling to get critical patient information, and Vergence goes a long way toward solving that problem."

Vergence, Sentillion's flagship product, unifies single sign-on, context management and strong authentication into one fully integrated, out-of-the box clinical workstation solution that enables caregivers to access and navigate quickly and easily between the many clinical and business software applications they use regularly. Sentillion's identity and access management solutions are the most widely deployed in healthcare and are used daily by more than 350,000 caregivers in over 600 hospitals across North America and the United Kingdom.

"The level of enthusiasm among our clinical staff for this information technology (IT) initiative has been greater than anything we've done before," Phyllis Grant, Baptist Health System's director of clinical informatics, said. "Sentillion's single sign-on capability sent our doctors and nurses gasping -- but context management really sent them over the edge that was the 'wow factor'."

Next summer, Baptist Health System expects to deploy Sentillion's user provisioning solution, proVision(TM), to create a centralized and automated provisioning process that will eliminate the challenges of manual user account management. With proVision, the IT staff can get caregivers up, running and productive on Baptist's information systems on the first day of their residency, staff assignment or upon receiving admitting privileges.
