We were relieved to find an identity management partner who truly understands health informatics and who can tailor their solutions to meet the needs of the greater healthcare community.
Arlington, VA (PRWEB) June 9, 2008
Anakam®, the leading provider of affordable, scaleable, multi-channel, two-factor authentication solutions, and Axolotl, the leader in web-based tools to electronically create, exchange, and distribute clinical information, today announced a partnership to provide secure access to Axolotl's suite of healthcare applications. Axolotl will offer the Anakam Identity Suite™ as an integral part of its solutions to comply with the emerging two-factor standard for remote access to electronic protected health information.
As part of the agreement, Axolotl will offer the Anakam Identity Suite™ to its existing and growing list of Health Information Exchange (HIE) customers. These customers include Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs), Hospital Groups, and Managed Care Providers. Axolotl and Anakam have worked together to integrate the full capabilities of the suite that includes user registration, fraud detection, anti-phishing, and multi-channel authentication through non-proprietary devices. "We are absolutely thrilled about our partnership with Axolotl to address the critical issues of patient safety, privacy, and clinician authentication" stated Bill Braithwaite, MD PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Anakam and HIPAA contributing author.
Anakam has been working with Axolotl on a number of projects and will soon commence the first of many integrated deployments with Axolotl's leading healthcare solutions. "We were relieved to find an identity management partner who truly understands health informatics and who can tailor their solutions to meet the needs of the greater healthcare community." said Glenn Keet, Senior Vice President of Axolotl. "We are equally impressed with the flexibility, ease of integration, and economics that the Anakam multi-channel authentication solution provides us and our customers," added Keet.
Anakam is the only vendor in the industry with a solution that delivers strong authentication across a full spectrum of communication channels on a single platform. From a single administration console, Anakam customers are able to configure one or more channels that include authentication via email, cell phones, PDAs and mobile devices, IVR, call centers, and voice biometrics. The ability to deliver across all channels allows consumer-patients to compliantly and appropriately access their personal health information with the growing Personal Health Record (PHR) environment. For this reason, Anakam was selected by CareSpark as a solution for its regional health information exchange in central Appalachia, and as a partner and coordinator on the Consumer Empowerment use case of the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN Trial implementation.
Anakam and Axolotl partnership addresses the growing need for facilities to easily, quickly, inexpensively, and securely provide physicians access to patient reports and clinical documents as soon as they are available. "This is truly a win-win, for both organizations and our mutual customers," said John Macaulay, MD, Vice President of Anakam Health & Life Sciences. "From the patient's perspective it means better reliability and confidence in the health services delivered. Patients benefit from improved quality of care and patient safety through rapid access to clinical source data because Anakam assures strong authentication of providers into the system through flexible multi-channel services designed to work across the potential practitioner environments."
