Credentialing staff and vendors to have access to the acceptable programs in an exceedingly timely manner and defend access to those systems was imperative for Memorial healthcare System, particularly if a variety of those systems provided access to non-public health information (PHI). From an IT perspective, the additional criteria included time-efficiency and agility to provide access to those systems.
A few years past, our provisioning method was done manually. We had to make, modify, or disable access to all or any accounts for workers and vendors one by one. With this setup, it could simply take an analyst up to a half-hour to make all requested accounts for each user.
With the shortage of standardization, there are delays and inconsistencies once processing access requests for brand spanking new staff or vendors. we tend to understand it had been necessary for the U.S.A. to hunt out a vendor we tend to might partner with to style an automatic method which may standardize the provisioning of accounts and increase our potency in providing the right access required.
Memorial Healthcare System engineered a task database that defines the applications and level of access each role needs to have supported the work functions and site of each worker or vendor. Our current Electronic Health Record (EHR) was the most drivers when building this role database, ensuring acceptable access to patient info was assigned to our ultimate users. The clinical, business and technical groups, alongside our Human Resources Department, collaborated to identify what applications and therefore the level of access needed for each job role.
