UniPrint Partners with Healthcare IT Security Leader, Imprivata, to Enable Clinicians To Securely Print Protected Health Information
Published: August 23, 2016
Toronto, Canada, August 23, 2016 – UniPrint.net Corp., the world leader in printing virtualization, today announced a partnership with Imprivata®, the healthcare IT security company. UniPrint.net has joined the Imprivata Developer Partner (IDP) program, utilizing the Imprivata OneSign® Print Connector to establish connectivity between UniPrint’s™ patented Universal Printer Driver and Virtual Print Queue, and Imprivata OneSign. This integrated solution enables clinicians that use virtual desktops, to securely and conveniently print Protected Health Information (PHI) to any printer, by using the same proximity card they use to log in and securely access patient data. The joint solution increases security and compliance for healthcare providers by eliminating the printing of private health information on unattended printers.
Traditionally, location-based printing has been a challenge for even the most efficient hospitals. Healthcare professionals may inadvertently send prescriptions and private patient data to print on the wrong printer or a printer in a different facility, potentially exposing PHI and violating regulatory requirements.
David Fung, CEO of UniPrint.net comments, “Imprivata OneSign streamlines access, giving healthcare providers increased productivity, better compliance, stronger security, and reduced IT costs. Caregivers can now spend more time with patients and less time signing on to systems. When Imprivata OneSign is deployed in a virtual environment, a user’s desktop follows them as they roam around the workplace. An essential part of that workflow optimization is enabling secure, on demand printing to the correct printer. With a proven track record in healthcare, UniPrint is ideally suited to provide mobile healthcare workers with the ability to conveniently and securely print documents.”
Imprivata OneSign gives millions of care providers fast and secure No Click Access® to the applications and patient information they need, whenever and wherever they need it. By integrating with the
Imprivata OneSign Print Connector, UniPrint’s Universal Printer Driver and Virtual Print Queue leverages Imprivata OneSign’s clinical identity and authentication policy management capabilities and offers error-free, secure mobile printing on demand. Clinicians can print their documents using the same proximity card they use to securely access any endpoint and patient records.
“When healthcare providers are dealing with confidential patient information, they need a trusted, proven solution to address their secure printing needs,” said Clay Ritchey, Chief Marketing Officer at Imprivata. “Printing is often an overlooked vulnerability in healthcare organizations and we’re pleased that UniPrint is able to provide the secure printing workflow within Imprivata OneSign to add another layer of security for our joint customers.”
The solution will be introduced at the upcoming VMworld Conference in Las Vegas, USA, August 28-31.
