Single Sign On: Saving time and improving efficiency
To save time for clinicians, improve the user experience, and enhance efficiency of the EHR access workflow, a single sign-on (SSO) solution was implemented across the hospital. The solution consists of a sign-on device, encrypted ID card and software integrated with Millennium applications. The solution enables clinicians to access the EHR with a single tap on the SSO device attached to the computer using their staff ID card. This bypasses typing in different user credentials and making unnecessary clicks, allowing users near-instant access to various applications.

Resilience in health care organizations
by Dr Mohamed AlRayyes
October 18, 2020
The modern era that we live in has only one constant to it: change; a neverending series of uncertainties that all industries face and will continue to face. In such conditions, the resilience of business organizations becomes an essential trait to ensure sustainability (and survival) into the future. The Oxford English Dictionary defines resilience as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties”. With the shock of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen that mere recovery and returning to business, as usual, is no longer enough for survival – we have experienced this in both our organizations and personal lives. What we took for granted just six months ago is no longer viable. To survive, we all had to reinvent our way of life and were encouraged (actually, forced) to finally take advantage of many existing technologies at our disposal.
