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.
