Single sign-on deemed critical by IT execs

Senior IT executives are most concerned with a single sign-on technology's capability to integrate with enterprise directories and the organization's core clinical vendor solutions, says a new survey by HIMSS Analytics and sponsored by Novell. The report is based on a survey of more than 100 senior IT executives involved in the IT decision-making process by HIMSS Analytics in May 2006. The survey was designed to determine how important single sign-on technology is within an overall healthcare IT strategy. The study concludes that single sign-on can be a valuable tool for healthcare organizations worldwide seeking to balance patient privacy with the need for access to patient health records.
