Date:4/9/2010

HEALTHeLINK, the Western New York Clinical Information Exchange, based in Buffalo, NY, has selected the Anakam to provide strong authentication for physicians accessing the private information of patients.

San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) April 9, 2010 -- Anakam announced today that HEALTHeLINK the Western New York Clinical Information Exchange, based in Buffalo, NY, has selected the Anakam Identity Suite ® to provide trusted access to the private health information of the more than 1.5 million patients in the community. HEALTHeLINK has implemented the Anakam Identity Suite® to provide service to its community providing a ubiquitous, cost-effective mechanism for the strong authentication and more secure online transactions for physicians accessing the private information of patients. This service will enable a single two factor authentication method enabling secure access to HEALTHeLINK and others in the community including hospital systems and health insurance plans through a single platform – simplifying the physician’s experience.

According to Dan Porreca, Executive Director of HEALTHeLINK, the Western New York clinical information exchange, “HEALTHeLINK’s vision is to create real-time, electronic sharing of clinical information among health care professionals in order to promote collaboration, limit duplication, control healthcare costs and improve the delivery of services, clinical outcomes and patient safety. Having the confidence of Anakam’s trusted access allows us to further that vision by ensuring secure remote access to confidential health information enhancing patient care and provider workflow.”

As more and more critical and sensitive healthcare information is connected electronically through health information exchanges (HIE), the protection and the privacy of patient health information is paramount to building Trust. With Anakam, HEALTHeLINK has augmented its already secure and reliable infrastructure for the timely and accurate electronic exchange of clinical information among health care providers, insurers and other medical professionals. HEALTHeLINK is leveraging the Anakam platform to provide authentication to over 25,000 clinicians as a cloud based identity service offering to all its stakeholders, which include four provider and three payer organizations. The Anakam Identity Suite® provides trusted access through a next-generation authentication platform that performs token-less, multi-channel delivery of two factor authentication every time they access the portal.

"The meaningful use of health information technology that is required to move current health practices toward higher quality while controlling costs can only occur when HIE is trusted by both clinicians and patients. Strong assurance of the identity of those sending and receiving the information is a foundational requirement for that trust,” said Dr. Bill Braithwaite, Anakam Chief Medical Officer. “Anakam has designed its identity suite from the ground up to cost-effectively meet the unique needs of the healthcare industry as access to protected health information by clinicians and patients alike moves to unsecured locations.”
