LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 24, 2021 / — Imprivata®, the digital identity company for healthcare, has celebrated the achievements of customers from the UK and Ireland at its annual HealthCon user group meeting, this year a virtual, but no less glittering, event held on 22 September.

For each of the four Awards, there was an overall Winner as well as Special Commendations in the category, which reflected the strength and depth of nominations. The Proven ROI Award for the customer who has fully leveraged their Imprivata solutions, either by deploying effectively across their organisation, saving time, or realising the value of Imprivata solutions in their workflows, was won by The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust, easily one of Imprivata’s quickest and most successful Single Sign-On deployments, demonstrating a fast time to value. Imprivata applauded the Trust for its innovative integration of the Imprivata ConfirmID and WellSky Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA) applications in the Pharmacy department. The project was a critical success factor in leveraging optimised secondary authentication when clinicians were e-charting, e-signing and e-witnessing patient medication.

Nigel Hall, Chief Digital & Information Officer at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust commented, “We are absolutely delighted to win this award. It is testament to the diligence and hard work of our project, implementation and wider support staff involved to make this a success.
“We are extremely proud of how we have applied Imprivata technology to deliver a highly secure medicines management methodology that keeps our patients safe whilst improving the digital experience for staff across the organisation.”

The Innovator Award for the Imprivata champion whose success story resonates innovation and achievement within their organisation, went to The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust for their forward-thinking strategy, investing Digital Aspirant funding to extend the Imprivata OneSign solution across the whole organisation with ‘tap and go’. The Trust has also completed a successful Proof of Concept with Welch Allyn medical devices. This will extend clinicians’ digital identity through badge tag authentication to 150 connected medical devices that simultaneously interact with the Trust’s Meditech electronic patient records system to reduce errors.
