Credentialing staff and vendors to own access to the appropriate programs in an exceedingly timely manner and defend access to those systems was imperative for Memorial healthcare System, particularly if a number of these systems provided access to personal health information (PHI). From an IT perspective, the extra criteria included time-efficiency and agility to supply access to these systems.
A few years past, our provisioning method was done manually. we had to form, modify, or disable access to all accounts for workers and vendors one by one. With this setup, it could simply take an analyst up to half-hour to create all requested accounts for every user.
With the shortage of standardization, there have been delays and inconsistencies once processing access requests for new staff or vendors. we tend to realized it was necessary for U.S.A. to seek out a vendor we tend to might partner with to design an automatic method which might standardize the provisioning of accounts and increase our potency in providing the proper access required.
Memorial healthcare System (MHS) engineered a task database that defines the applications and level of access each role ought to have supported the job functions and site of every worker or vendor. Our current Electronic Health Record (EHR) was the main driver when building this role database, ensuring acceptable access to patient info was assigned to our ultimate users. The clinical, business and technical groups, along with our Human Resources Department, collaborated to spot what applications and the level of access needed for every job role.
