The move coincides with the launch of Sentillion’s UK Channel Partner Program and enables iSOFT to become the first partner to offer its customers Vergence SSO/context management suite and Sentillion’s next-generation SSO solution, expreSSO, which are all developed exclusively for healthcare.
According to the anouncement, with Sentillion’s SSO/context management solutions, users can quickly authenticate and switch between iSOFT and other clinical applications while retaining patient context. The software also provides fast access and added security and is scalable so it can be installed on a departmental or enterprise-wide basis.
The ‘plug-and-go’ expreSSO supports NHS Smartcards to swiftly authenticate to local and national applications. It also speeds the implementation of a trust-wide single sign-on solution. With expreSSO, Sentillion has streamlined the once complex process of introducing single sign-on solutions through innovative technology, reducing implementation times to days.
Paul Richards, managing director of iSOFT UK and Ireland, said: “Sentillion created SSO for healthcare and for ten years has been at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for identity and access management. Its solutions are proven, are the most widely-used in healthcare and were recently endorsed by Gartner.
“Our partnership with Sentillion via its Channel Partner Program allows our customers to benefit from the industry’s most comprehensive set of solutions for single sign-on and context management. These solutions manage single sign-on across multiple applications and allow users to easily switch between applications seamlessly while retaining patient context. Compatibility with NHS Smartcards also speeds access and retrieval of data. We are pleased to be working with Sentillion to offer this wide range of solutions to our customers today.”
Paul Malcolm, UK General Manager for Sentillion, said: “One of the first steps we are taking is a joint collaboration on the creation of a UK demo centre which will showcase Sentillion solutions in operation with iSOFT’s applications. Our goal is to create a convenient way for iSOFT’s customers to experience and understand the value of these products.”
