It’s no secret that security and user authentication have been squarely under the microscope in the healthcare industry — as it should be. With the massive security breaches that have taken place recently, many hospitals and healthcare networks are scrambling to make sure they’re not the next headline.
Key Drivers in Healthcare Security
Protecting ePHI for EPCS and HIPAA Compliance
Ensuring authorized access is critical to Electronic Prescriptions of Controlled Substances (EPCS) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance.
Less Clicks for Doctors and Staff
Fast secure access and minimizing disruptions to information can be the difference between life or death.
Maximizing Operational Efficiency
Centralized access control with little to no day-to-day administrative overhead means stretched IT resources focus on mission critical tasks.
"The end users love the new system. When they’re on premise, they don’t even have to be prompted for their credentials, however if they take that same device off network, they’re automatically prompted for credentials. It’s really a nice solution and a lot of time people don’t even realize they are using it”
"Our idea of how long it would take to get an authentication solution in place completely changed when we started working with SecureAuth. We were delighted when we realized it would take hours, not days or weeks."
Manager Information Security Architecture
"SecureAuth give me the ability to ensure that remote access into my network is being done by authenticated individuals in a secure way and with the least amount of resistance to that access."

SecureAuth for HealthCare Offers
A DEA Compliant Solution for EPCS – SecureAuth’s flexible authentication framework provides DEA compliant 2-factor authentication with workflows that actually reduce clicks for physicians.
One Platform All User Access – Securing your organization by verifying the identity of your users is complex, but with SecureAuth it doesn’t have to be. Centrally manage and maintain authentication workflows for all your different user groups across the organization, allowing a custom user experience without sacrificing security.
Passwordless Authentication – A user name and fingerprint print scan and users are authorized. Passwordless authentication using fingerprints and layered risk checks provides stronger authentication and greater confidence than passwords.
Invisible Security For Physicians– Multi-layered pre-authentication risk checks, using information about the request (Adaptive Authentication), evaluate the “riskiness” during every access request, giving you the confidence and ability to streamline access for low risk requests, require additional authentication for medium risk requests, and deny or redirect high risk requests. Matching risk to workflow resulting in less friction for employees while securing systems against attackers.
Convenient Two-Factor Authentication – Let users choose the method most convenient for them: mobile phone push notification, SMS, email, voice calls and more. – With 25+ methods, users don’t have to carry around “something else for authentication.
