“We were looking for a solution that met three main criteria: Password management that would enable user single sign-on, easy installation and management, and the ability to ‘lock up’ our passwords. Centrify met all three.”
CENTRIFY IDENTITY SERVICE CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT
FastMed frequently embraces the latest technologies to assist them in delivering best-in-class healthcare. While the benefit to patients has been undeniable, the downside has been an overwhelmed hospital staff accessing an endless number of databases, websites and apps each day, and storing usernames and passwords on sticky notes, in Word files and in their heads.
With Centrify, FastMed now has a solution to simplify and secure access to those resources.
FastMed employees now access over 200 apps, websites and cloud services every day — virtually every resource required across the organization.
- Provide easy, single sign-on access to medical and administrative staff resources
- Adhere to HIPAA standards for restricting access to patient information
- Minimize the approximately 200 requests for password resets the six-person IT team was receiving each month
“Dropping apps into the system is a very simple process and within minutes they appear on user dashboards. Adding apps into the Centrify portal is about as simple as it gets,” says Wayne Dale, Application Security Engineer at FastMed Urgent Care.
Centrify has simplified administrative activities with easy, one-click access, and eliminated the complexity and hassle of multiple usernames and passwords. Help desk calls for password resets have dropped significantly, saving the company thousands of dollars each year. The solution has made patient information more secure, simplified new employee onboarding and helped to ensure HIPAA compliance.
