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."
