Sentillion proVision(TM) Now Manages Over 150,000 Identities
ANDOVER, Mass., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentillion announced today that
over the past six months, seven healthcare organizations have selected
Sentillion's proVision solution to create centralized and automated
provisioning processes that eliminate the challenges of manual user account
-- Ardent Health Services (Nashville, TN)
-- Baptist Health System (Birmingham, AL)
-- Hawaii Pacific Health (Honolulu, HI)
-- IASIS Healthcare (Franklin, TN)
-- Presbyterian Healthcare Services (Albuquerque, NM)
-- University of North Carolina Health System (Chapel Hill, NC)
Sentillion's proVision solution is now used to manage over 150,000 user identities at leading healthcare organizations across North America. Customers already in production with proVision include BryanLGH, Cottage Health System, Park Nicollet Health Services, Sharp HealthCare, Sisters of Mercy Health System, Texas Children's Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The seven new customers will use proVision to manage over 50,000 additional identities.
proVision's momentum is driven in part by security, caregiver productivity and compliance challenges related to the traditional burdensome and error-prone manual processes of creating and managing user accounts for clinical, business and personal productivity applications. Healthcare applications present special challenges when it comes to automating the provisioning process. Specifically, a majority of healthcare applications do not expose the APIs required by most provisioning systems in order to create accounts. Given that Sentillion's provisioning solution is optimized specifically for the healthcare industry, proVision is the only solution in the industry to provide automated fine-grained provisioning to healthcare applications that require extensive data beyond username and password in order to create accounts.
Another key differentiator of proVision is its support of role-based, template-based and user-based provisioning models. Roles, rules or business policies can be specified at a global, department, application or individual level. For each application to be provisioned, proVision supports an extensible attribute-based model. The application attributes combined with roles that define job function, department and/or location affiliations and business policies result in a powerful, highly flexible solution that can handle provisioning variations to the user, user type, department and application level.
"Caregivers have long wanted -- but rarely had -- application access from day one, because the traditional manual processes for identity and access management are tedious. As a result, many healthcare organizations do not have an accurate understanding of who their users are and what applications they have access to," said Paul Roscoe, president of Sentillion. "Recent high profile cases of unauthorized access to patient information are spotlighting this problem, and the time has come for organizations to tackle it. By automating the process and creating a centralized repository to generate usage reports, Sentillion's provisioning solution provides value for caregivers, patients, the IT department, and compliance officers."
