With MEDITECH & Forward Advantage, Strong Authentication = Secure EHR
Maintaining the privacy and integrity of confidential data while also reducing security risks are among healthcare organizations’ top IT concerns. To address these issues and offer an extra layer of security, MEDITECH works with trusted partner Forward Advantage to provide healthcare organizations with Multi-Factor Authentication—also referred to as two-factor or strong authentication.
Any Identity Provider (IdP) that is SAML 2.0 compliant or Imprivata OneSign can be used with our Web EHR at sign-in. Additionally, to ensure clinicians always have easy and secure access to patient data through web browsers and mobile devices, Forward Advantage's Authello Solution integrates multi-factor authentication with MEDITECH’s Web EHR for in-application events.
Implementing cybersecurity best practices can help your organization mitigate risk and optimize your workflow. To protect your network and prevent data breaches, the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) has released Best Practices for strong authentication.
