Secure Patient Data, Reduce Risk and Connect Your Employees

As a healthcare organization, you are responsible for keeping essential health information safe from hackers and the dark web. Patients’ private medical information is often a lucrative deal on the black market as well, with medical cyberattacks seeing an 86% increase in 2022.

One of the most effective ways to ensure patient information is safe is through healthcare identity and access management (IAM) systems. Using an IAM enables your organization to establish identity governance and access management programs to provide greater protection against cybercrime.

At Optimal IdM, we partner with our clients to create customized enterprise-level solutions. Our team specializes in complex environments and will ensure your medical practice is secure for greater patient confidence. We invite you to explore our customized identity and access management solutions today.

Healthcare Challenges With Cyber Security?

Why Optimal IdM Is Vital for Protecting Patient Data

Many patients expect personalized care and holistic practices that utilize the latest technology, telemedicine and partner data. The patient is always the priority, so identity protection is vital. The foundation of medical practice security relies on implementing strategic healthcare IAM software. Explore some of the essential elements of medical cybersecurity Optimal IdM can assist with.

Enhancing Customer Security

A recent report found that 70% of medical security breaches targeted demographic or financial data instead of only medical information. With an increase in digital health records, healthcare organizations must continually evolve their thinking as to how to keep patient data safe. At Optimal IdM, our IAM healthcare strategy enables medical practices to protect sensitive information across multiple environments. Our secure production environments use multifactor identification and ensure only system administrators have access to patient information.

Streamlining Employee Workflows

The healthcare industry is subject to continuous changes. That means your organization needs a healthcare identity and access management solution that streamlines workflows while empowering employees to handle external pressures. By implementing Optimal IdM’s software solutions into your medical practice, you can effectively handle tasks such as access-related activity, managing an active directory and ongoing employee changes or transfers.

Reducing Cost and Risk

A 2022 report found that healthcare data breaches cost $10.10 million on average, which is a higher expense than any other industry faces. Protecting personal health information is vital for your practice. At Optimal IdM, we pride ourselves on providing cost-effective solutions and combining all your information into one program for enhanced security. We also offer a unified member database to enable your practice to save money while increasing operational efficiency.

SSO lowers expenses

Single Sign-On for Healthcare (SSO)

With SSO, users can use one set of credentials to log into all of their employer’s systems. Users are saved from having to remember multiple sets of credentials, and the IT desk is saved from hours of work resetting passwords each day. Because users don’t have to remember passwords, they also don’t have to write them on paper or share them with coworkers, and that reduces the chances of an insider attack. Learn more


Strengthen Security & Control Vendor Access with Multi-Factor Authentication & Federated Identity

Business associates and patients also need access to a healthcare organization’s systems. Federated identity lets a user log into the systems of multiple organizations with one set of credentials. Optimal IdM’s Federated Identity solution supports multi-factor authentication and authorization in the cloud, on-premise, or in a hybrid environment. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is not a mandatory requirement today, but it will be in impending updates, and healthcare organizations are encouraged by NIST and PCI SSC guidance to start implementing MFA now.

Authenticate Users in On-Site or Remote Locations with Multi-Forest Active Directory

Multi-Forest Active Directory gives healthcare organizations a single real-time view of identity data from any data store. Healthcare organizations can authenticate users coming from their own organizations, their vendor’s locations, or their patients’ homes or phones.

Optimal IdM’s Multi-Forest Active Directory solution is driven by our Virtual Identity Server (VIS). VIS simplifies identity management and gives greater control over which accounts can connect, bind, and search the LDAP directory.

Increase Organizational Agility & Scalability with LDAP Migrations

Healthcare organizations need to be move quickly today, but many are held back by outdated technology that can’t keep up with their operational and security needs. Migrating data from one LDAP to another can be so difficult that organizations often choose to limp along with their legacy systems rather than risk the pain and expense of a migration.

Optimal IdM’s Virtual Identity Server (VIS) easily solves this problem by emulating the old LDAP platform while proxying requests to the new LDAP environment. VIS can also make a seamless transition from an obsolete and no longer supported virtual directory.
