Axiad IDS Takes HIPAA-Compliant Security to the Next Level for Healthcare Industry


Protects Patient Information While Cost-Effectively Meeting Healthcare Professionals’ Demand for Convenience and Accessibility

ORLANDO, Florida, February 15, 2017 - Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today launched its new integrated healthcare solution at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, in Orlando.  Axiad IDS’ newest solution takes HIPAA-compliant security to the next level by combining innovative single sign-on authentication with two-factor authentication to protect patient information while giving doctors and healthcare providers fast and convenient access to electronic-protected health information (ePHI). Axiad IDS’ integrated healthcare solutions will be demonstrated at HIMSS in Booth #595.

“Healthcare organizations require a flexible, customizable solution to meet specific identity and access needs across various user populations,” said Philippe Duchamp, Vice President, Channel Sales and Enablement, Axiad IDS.  “We understand how to secure patient information without giving up convenience and accessibility.  More than delivering the technology, Axiad IDS truly understands the way healthcare professionals must function to perform their duties quickly and efficiently.” 

Simple, Secure Solutions

Axiad IDS’ Healthcare solutions make it easy for physicians and staff to quickly access confidential information without compromising patient care.  For example, secure authentication is mandated to log in to Electronic Medical Record Systems (EMR) to protect patient data.  The challenge is creating a system that both protects patient data and provides healthcare professionals with immediate access to the information they need to deliver critical patient care.  Physicians and staff simply don’t have the time to deal with passwords and other cumbersome security requirements when time is of the essence.

The solution: by combining single-sign-on (SSO) authentication with a two-factor authentication solution based on smart cards, tokens, contactless bracelets or biometrics — healthcare personnel can log in with a single tap of a badge and be authenticated just once a day.

Axiad IDS’ Healthcare solutions are powered by NetIQ proven Advanced Authentication and Single Sign-On software, and by HID Global smart cards, OMNIKEY® readers, biometrics solutions and card personalization printers. Other features include follow-me login enabled by virtualization technologies that allow authorized personnel to move between workstations quickly and efficiently. Each minute saved means more time for patients and less frustration for staff.

“Today’s healthcare organizations require advanced, non-intrusive technologies and methods that simplify and ensure a better user experience,” said Terry Gold, Founder, D6 Research LLC. “Axiad IDS’ healthcare solutions provide this focus on the user including 24/7 support for the complete solution — one software solution; one point of contact.”
