Summa Health System Creates Quick Win With Their Caregiver Community By Implementing Sentillion's Clinical Workstation Solution

ANDOVER, Mass., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Summa Health System, a major healthcare network that serves a five county region in northeast Ohio, has gone live with Sentillion's single sign-on (SSO) and context management solutions and is systematically rolling it out to more than 4,000 caregivers. Summa Health System selected Sentillion's Vergence(R) clinical workstation solution, which includes SSO, advanced authentication and context management, to help manage secure access to its network while giving clinicians instant access to all the applications they need to make clinical decisions.

At Summa Health System its primary health information system, Eclipsys SCM, along with other key clinical applications are distributed to caregivers via a Citrix published application strategy. Sentillion's expertise and success with this mixture of technology was one of the primary reasons it was selected by Summa Health System.

In addition, as Summa Health System computerized its patient records it found that electronic data spread across multiple clinical applications was not able to be accessed by physicians and nurses as efficiently as possible. Prior to implementing Sentillion's clinical workstation solution, caregivers used multiple passwords to access and locate the patient's record in each application.

"SSO and context management enabled us to create a quick win with our caregivers as we were able to both simplify their workflow by speeding access to multiple applications and enable them to better manage patient data," said Greg Kall, CIO for Summa Health System. "In addition, Sentillion's close partnership with Eclipsys, our primary health information system vendor, significantly enhanced our ability to roll out the solutions within our specified timeframe and budget."

Today, when a Summa Health System caregiver provides their username and password, they are quickly and securely authenticated and, through the power of SSO, the caregiver is automatically signed into Summa Health Systems' health information systems, which includes Eclipsys, SoftMed, OptiLink, Teletracking and AGFA. Additionally, the need to search for patients in multiple applications is eliminated since context management automatically tunes the applications to the selected patient's identity, saving time, and eliminating the potential for errors.

"At the time of go-live, each clinician participated in a five minute enrollment for single sign-on, along with a brief one-on-one review session," said Pam Banchy, System Director of Clinical Information Systems for Summa Health System. "Based on enhancements to their workflow and ease of use, clinician's identified additional future applications to add to SSO that would continue to improve quality of care delivery."
