E.Novation partners with Sentillion to offer healthcare identity solutions to European markets

Sentillion : 25 July, 2008  (Company News)
E.Novation has entered into a partnership with the US healthcare identity and access management specialist Sentillion which will see E.Novation sell the Sentillion suite from its European offices in the Benelux, France and Great Britain.
The Sentillion suite is a comprehensive set of solutions for single sign-on, user provisioning, clinical workstations and virtualised remote access. “Endless logins and selection of patients within each individual application will be a thing of the past,” stressed E.Novation’s sales manager Sven Walraven.

Sentillion and E.Novation met earlier this year at the HIMSS international healthcare show in Orlando, Florida, USA, and discovered that their expertise perfectly matched. Sentillion’s software suite is used by 350,000 healthcare providers in the US and Great Britain every day, while E.Novation has been the market leader in communications and integration solutions in the healthcare sector for over 25 years.

“In E.Novation we have found a partner highly regarded in the healthcare sector as an IT service provider whose area of operations comprises a number of European countries. This gives us the opportunity to distribute our products further across Europe,” explained Sentillion vice-president for worldwide channel sales John Gobron.

Walraven believes that this partnership is perfectly in line with E.Novation’s goals. “The provision of these products reflects our aim to optimize procedures by means of automation. The priority in all sectors is increased efficiency. Sentillion’s software enables its users to make enormous time savings because they don’t need to log in repeatedly,” Walraven emphasised.

The single sign-on product expreSSO is a particularly important addition to E.Novation’s portfolio, as it means that users will only need to log in once to gain direct access to all applications for which they have authorisation, whereas they currently need to log into each individual application separately. “This can help hospitals realise major time savings if you consider how many applications a specialist opens during the course of a day in order to view or update medical data,” said Walraven.

The pertinence of a single sign-on solution for the Dutch healthcare market has been enhanced by the implementation of the National Switchpoint (LSP) and the simultaneous introduction of the Unique Healthcare Identification (UZI) card. This card is used to authorise healthcare providers to request medical data via the LSP. If a healthcare institution uses a single sign-on solution, healthcare providers can log in using their UZI card and subsequently use any application, even if they do not support the UZI card. Walraven believes that “the UZI card will in any case give all healthcare providers a new authorisation tool, which represents an ideal opportunity for them to optimize procedures by means of a single sign-on solution.”

Aside from the single sign-on solution expreSSO, E.Novation has high expectations of Vergence a desktop integration solution which combines single sign-on with context management. Vergence makes sure that a patient selected in an application is also selected immediately in all other open applications being used by a healthcare provider. This ensures that a healthcare provider has access to all data of a particular patient in all relevant applications, thus avoiding human errors such as the accidental swapping of patient data.

Vergence operates with any application through the use of bridges or connectors which interface directly with the applications without involvement from the application suppliers. E.Novation also carries the solutions proVision and vThere a tool for user administrators and remote workstations that delivers a remote workstation solution on a USB stick or DVD respectively.
