Healthcare organizations typically use multiple information systems, and the technology deployed to manage identity and access management can be diverse. Additionally, ensuring the minimum necessary access to these systems, proper audit and attestation can include weighty or overbearing processes and configuration activities.
Intermountain Healthcare addressed these challenges by using identity technologies and a data security administrator model that has proven effective over many years. Also, as the organization’s focus has turned to providing an improved patient experience with information systems, consumer identity and access management (CIAM) is quickly becoming an important area of focus.
In this session, attendees will get an inside look at Intermountain’s approach to IAM as well as the methods and technology the organization uses to address the challenges CIAM poses to legacy IAM systems.
