Verizon health ID management expands to cover EHRs, HIEs

Verizon is expanding its cloud-based identity-management services for healthcare providers. Verizon Universal Identify Services-Healthcare, founded in November 2010, now supports new identity standards for accessing electronic health records and health information exchanges. In addition, it offers new features for electronic prescribing, including the prescribing of controlled substances.

Verizon now provides legally binding digital signature capabilities for authenticating signatures on clinical documents. The company's new ID Message Center allows users to monitor their digital signature activities through a mobile application or optional Web-based portal. Providers can use their smartphones or other mobile devices to gain access to Verizon's identity management features.

The Verizon service supports the Drug Enforcement Administration guidelines for the e-prescribing of controlled substances. It also complies with the Food and Drug Administration's digital signature guidelines for the submission of electronic records.

In June, Verizon announced that the service supports the SAFE-BioPharma standard, the only life science digital standard that offers interoperability with government agencies, such as the FDA and the European Medicines Agency.
