LEXINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, today announced that Imprivata Cortext®, the secure communications platform for healthcare, is considered twice as often as products from other vendors amongst customers making strategic secure messaging purchasing decisions, according to a new report from KLAS. Titled, “Secure Messaging 2015: First Look at Who Providers Are Considering and Why,” the report examines the growing and increasingly competitive landscape of secure messaging in healthcare.
According to the KLAS report, “One of the most important functions provided by secure messaging vendors is the ability for nurses to exchange messages and data with physicians and vice versa, rather than just the ability to facilitate physician-to-physician or nurse-to-nurse communication.” Imprivata Cortext is rated highest with the most sites reporting that doctors and nurses are capable of communicating with each other using secure messaging. Imprivata also stands out for developing a more comprehensive solution that meets the needs of both groups and facilitates better care coordination.
“We're pleased that trusted sources of healthcare such as KLAS continue to recognize Imprivata as a leader in secure messaging,” said Ed Gaudet, General Manager of the Imprivata Cortext Products Group. “We are committed to delivering the best user experience for physicians, nurses, and all healthcare employees, patients, and family members involved in patient care."
The KLAS report also finds that with the increased fear of HIPAA audits and data security threats, many providers are seeking a secure messaging platform to allow clinicians to communicate in a safe, efficient manner while also improving care coordination inside and outside of the hospital.
“Our clinical staff relies on Imprivata Cortext for critical communications inside and outside of the hospital,” said Edward Ricks, VP and CIO at Beaufort Memorial Hospital. “The ability to improve communications while sending automated clinical notifications directly from our EMR to Imprivata Cortext enables us to replace pagers and, improve staff efficiency while also enhancing patient safety and satisfaction.”
