Courion's Access Assurance solutions help MEDNAX increase security and simplify compliance
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Courion(R) Corporation, leaders in access governance, provisioning and compliance, today announced that MEDNAX, Inc., has implemented the company's Enterprise Suite to assure access to critical systems and data for its approximately 5,000 clinical and administrative employees.
MEDNAX is a national medical group that comprises the nation's leading provider of neonatal, maternal-fetal and pediatric physician services as well as anesthesia services. More than 1,200 MEDNAX affiliated physicians provide care to patients in 32 states and Puerto Rico.
MEDNAX is using Courion's Enterprise Suite to automate the process of managing physician and employee access to applications. This replaces labor-intensive manual procedures and simplifies the process for proving compliance with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), by automatically enforcing user access policies. Automation of these processes helps MEDNAX create efficiencies for controlling user access and reduce costs associated with handling access requests.
"The process of creating, modifying and disabling access for employees previously required 10 or more hours per week of manual work," said H. Edison Humphries, IT Security Manager, MEDNAX. "Courion's solutions eliminate this time-consuming process while also ensuring that only authorized users have access to applications. This reduces security risks from inappropriate access, while also easing the process of proving compliance."
Courion's Enterprise Suite also provides MEDNAX's affiliated practice clinicians with self-service password reset and synchronization across all practices so users only require one password to access all of their systems, helping to improve productivity and reduce password reset calls to the help desk.
Courion's unique Access Assurance approach to identity, access and compliance management ensures that only the right people have the right access to the right resources and are doing the right things. Access Assurance unifies Access Governance, Access Provisioning and Access Compliance in the most complex, heterogeneous environments. This comprehensive approach increases operational efficiency and transparency, strengthens security, and improves compliance, while delivering the industry's fastest time to value and lowest total cost of ownership.
