This IDC Health Insights report focuses on the implementation of a single sign-on solution at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Faced with government mandates to implement clinical technologies for meaningful use, U.S. hospitals are struggling to manage the impact that EHR and CPOE implementations have had on provider and IT productivity, data and application security, and clinical operations.
According to Judy Hanover, research director, IDC Health Insights, Lost productivity is a major problem associated with EHR implementations at U.S. hospitals, and infrastructure technologies such as single sign-on have the potential to make providers more efficient and restore some lost productivity. Ultimately, technologies that help restore lost provider productivity will reduce costs, make applications more secure and accelerate the adoption of EHR.
