Protecting patient data and streamlining IT care

In today's healthcare landscape, the digital transformation has led to a significant shift towards online access for medical care and information. This transformation to a digitally interconnected industry has brought numerous complex IAM challenges.

One of these challenges revolves around managing identities and access privileges for various user groups, including patients, clinicians, researchers, and third parties. These are all essential for healthcare organizations. Addressing secure access for remote healthcare services, while adhering to strict regulations like HIPAA and HITECH, and effectively managing temporary access requirements remains an ongoing challenge. Furthermore, the necessity for patient engagement and privacy protection adds complexity to the IAM landscape within healthcare.

Streamline third-party access

Facilitating secure, controlled access for external partners, including insurance companies and laboratories, is essential within the healthcare sector. Different positions require varying levels of access to internal systems and patient data. AD360 streamlines the approval workflow, ensuring that all requests for creations, modifications, and access undergo thorough supervision before approval. This effectively prevents unauthorized changes.

  • Build a customized workflow structure within the healthcare organization, incorporating roles such as requesters, reviewers, approvers, and executors. This structure should be aligned with the healthcare provider's operational needs and patient care standards.
  • Enable real-time notifications for healthcare staff via email during critical task execution, including patient account updates and access permission changes. This facilitates seamless communication across various healthcare departments, ensuring effective patient care and streamlined healthcare governance.
  • Develop automated workflows in healthcare systems by utilizing orchestration actions, webhooks, and customizable notification templates. Customize scripts for health data processing and integrate clinical administrative actions seamlessly with a user-friendly, drag-and-drop interface.
Improve doctors' productivity and patient care

Patients and healthcare professionals often send emails for password resets and account changes, resulting in delays as admins struggle to resolve these tickets promptly. In addition, frequent account lockouts frustrate clinicians, partners, and patients. Using AD360, healthcare staff and patients can manage passwords, unlock accounts, and update personal information on their own.

  • Enable convenient password resets and account unlocks for healthcare staff and patients by integrating a Password Reset or Account Unlock option in the login interface.
  • Easily update locally stored credentials following a remote password reset, ensuring uninterrupted access to patient data and critical healthcare systems.
  • Implement conditional access to ensure that only verified users, such as medical professionals or registered patients, can modify their passwords and update their personal information in the system directories.
  • Provide SSO access to multiple healthcare applications, simplifying healthcare authentication. Eliminate the need for multiple login credentials, enhancing accessibility and productivity in healthcare.
Manage temporary healthcare staff and user access

The healthcare sector hires temporary staff, such as traveling nurses and visiting physicians, to address staffing shortages. An increase in joiners, movers, and leavers will impact patient care and increase cybersecurity risks if not handled properly. In addition, clinicians may move between departments or roles and require different access levels. AD360 allows admins to easily update and manage user roles and permissions. This ensures that every user has access to the resources they need while maintaining organizational security.

  • Provide access permissions to temporary accounts, such as consultants, contractors, and temporary healthcare staff to ensure they can access necessary medical and administrative systems within the specified time frame.
  • Regularly assess and adjust access levels for contractors and temporary healthcare staff, ensuring they have the appropriate level of system entry to perform their duties effectively. All while maintaining the security and confidentiality of patient data.
  • Easily manage temporary access rights for contractors and other temporary users in healthcare, enabling healthcare institutions to efficiently handle access provisioning and deprovisioning processes.
Enhance user authentication and endpoint security

Healthcare organizations store a vast amount of sensitive data, including patient information, hospital records, insurance details, biomedical research findings, and medical test results. This attracts cybercriminals who profit by stealing and selling this data on the dark web. With AD360, users must verify their identity before gaining access using adaptive MFA.

  • Implement adaptive MFA in healthcare IT systems to fortify the security of Windows, macOS, Linux, VPN, and OWA logins, ensuring robust protection of sensitive patient information.
  • Customize authentication methods in healthcare settings based on the user's behavior, location, and device.
  • Enforce password policies to meet healthcare sector standards: limit character repetition, avoid dictionary words, prohibit palindromes, and include complex requirements for data security and patient confidentiality.
Maintain HIPAA and HITECH compliance

Maintaining compliance is paramount in healthcare, particularly with the stringent HIPAA and HITECH regulations governing ePHI protection. Many organizations grapple with the complexities of achieving HIPAA compliance, as evidenced by over $84 million in fines over the past five years. AD360 offers a streamlined solution with out-of-the-box reports, making HIPAA and HITECH compliance easily attainable for healthcare organizations.

  • Simplify compliance management in healthcare with tailored reporting templates, easing the tracking of industry-specific regulations, and enhancing patient data protection.
  • Export over 150 pre-installed reports specific to your healthcare organization's AD infrastructure, from login and folder permission reports to group membership insights, enhancing data visibility and control.
  • Stay healthcare-compliant by continuously monitoring and receiving real-time alerts, allowing proactive responses to potential breaches or regulatory issues and bolstering patient and staff information security.

AD360 helps CAMH annually save thousands of dollars spent on IT helpdesk calls

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada's largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world's leading research centers in the area of behavioral health.

"CAMH will be able to save close to $26,000 a year on service desk calls related to active directory password resets and locked accounts, and will see a return on investment within the first six months of product implementation"

Business challenges

The majority of CAMH’s IT services, including assisting users with Active Directory password resets and account unlocks, were outsourced to a Managed Service Provider (MSP), who charged them on a per-call basis. For CAMH, the number of password related calls made to the service desk were too high and consequently pushed up its IT management costs.

How AD360 helped

CAMH picked AD360's self-service password management module because of its unique capabilities, which include: the facility to push the GINA extension (for password reset/account unlock from Winlogon screen) from a central console, the self-update layout, and a customizable self-service portal.

With password resets done by users themselves with AD360's self-service credential update feature, CAMH predicted that they will be able to maximize their ROI potential with AD360 within the first six months of implementation.
