LIPIX Protects Access to Electronic Health Information With the Anakam Identity Suite(R)

SAN DIEGO, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Long Island Patient Information eXchange (LIPIX) went live with Anakam's Identity Suite(R) to enable trusted access for providers accessing LIPIX online systems. LIPIX realizes the value of integrating clinical information from various community health organizations through its HIE, but also understands that it is essential to provide its community members the proper assurance that the information will be protected. "As more and more sensitive healthcare information is connected electronically through regional health information organizations (RHIOs), the protection and the privacy of patient health information is paramount," said Mark E. Greaker, LIPIX's Chief Technology Officer.

"Anakam helps healthcare institutions and health information networks build trust and prevent medical identity theft and fraud by enabling secure remote access to confidential health information in a cost-effective and scalable manner, without disrupting provider workflow." - William R. "Bill" Braithwaite, MD, PhD, Anakam's Chief Medical Officer.

The Anakam Identity Suite(R) provides LIPIX the assurance of trusted access through a next-generation authentication platform that performs identity "proofing" upon initial clinician or patient registration into the portal and token-less, multi-channel delivery of two-factor authentication every time they access the portal. This also provides LIPIX's clinicians and patients an enhanced level of trust that personal health records and related information will not be compromised due to unauthorized online access.

"With Anakam helping LIPIX ensure that the right individual is accessing the right information, LIPIX has taken important steps to protect patient data. We have created a secure environment so that our participants, both doctors and patients, trust the system. Through its innovative and scalable identity platform, Anakam provides a secure, cost-effective, and flexible solution," according to Benjamin Stein, MD, Executive Director of LIPIX.

In addition, through the partnership and collaboration between LIPIX and Anakam, LIPIX can now use its identity management infrastructure to provide Anakam functionality to other RHIOs across the State of New York. The Anakam Identity Suite(R) was designed for flexible and large-scale deployments across global enterprises, federal agencies and regional implementations. The Anakam Identity Suite(R) is an open and fully web-service enabled authentication platform that allows organizations to design how individuals access their system.

"We have built the Anakam platform specifically for healthcare and government situations where there are often large and complex deployments with many different types of users accessing multiple organizations' heterogeneous systems. The Anakam platform is configurable to meet the needs of an organization. It seamlessly integrates with different online systems, and scales to provide trusted access to millions of users. Anakam is delighted to partner with LIPIX, not only to provide services for its community but potentially to provide services for the entire state of New York," stated Allan Camaisa, CEO of Anakam.
