Tools4ever, the worldwide market leader in identity and access management solutions with more than five million user accounts, announced today the addition of several healthcare facilities through the first quarter of 2013. Among those to add Tools4ever’s identity and access management solutions to securely manage user accounts and eliminate password issues include West Tennessee Healthcare and Southeastern Regional Medical Center.

The Tools4ever identity and access management solutions implemented for use by employees in the care setting include User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA), Self Service Password Management (SSRPM) and Enterprise Single Sign-On Manager (E-SSOM).

West Tennessee Healthcare is a public, not-for-profit healthcare system that Modern Healthcare listed as one of the top such healthcare systems in the U.S. With locations throughout 18 counties in West Tennessee, West Tennessee Healthcare is a family of healthcare services that provides a full compendium of care from six hospitals, an outpatient surgical facility, a home healthcare agency, primary care and specialty clinics and outpatient clinics, among other services. West Tennessee Healthcare employs more than 5,000 people and is one of the region's top employers.

Southeastern Regional Medical Center, based in Lumberton, North Carolina, is a nonprofit comprehensive healthcare system that offers a wide array of health services through its affiliated divisions. Southeastern Health includes Southeastern Regional Medical Center, which is licensed for 452 beds and offers a combination of acute care, intensive care and psychiatric services to more than 16,000 inpatients and 76,000 emergency patients annually.

These two organizations represent several others across the U.S. that continue to take seriously their commitment to identity and access management in the care setting, said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever.

“As reform and regulation continue to change the healthcare landscape, healthcare’s IT leaders continue to take steps to secure access to the data produced in the care setting,” said Wiech. “In addition, they also are automating their account management systems to allow users to have easier access to their own information, as well as to remove unnecessary burdens from their own IT departments.”

Tools4ever’s UMRA allows healthcare organizations to streamline their account management processes through auto provisioning, role-based access control, and self-service and workflow management. With UMRA, healthcare organizations are able to easily and securely provision and de-provision accounts, make account changes and assign access controls, while ensuring compliance with all healthcare standards.

In addition, E-SSOM can be paired with UMRA for added benefits such as “Fast User Switching” and “Follow Me.” These additions allow users to quickly switch accounts on a workstation, or easily take their session to another workstation. This is ideal for care providers who share one PC amongst multiple users or who need to login at a number of locations.

SSPRM as well can add additional benefits by allowing employees to work more efficiently, eliminating the need to contact the helpdesk to reset their passwords if they are locked out, and allow employees to securely reset it themselves and get back to work.
