AHA Endorsement:

Secure Messaging

“Imprivata Cortext gives us a powerful solution for moving away from pagers and enabling more efficient clinical communication and care coordination.” – Adam Buckley, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer, University of Vermont Medical (UVM) Center, Burlington, Vt.

Health care organizations today struggle with pagers and outdated communication technologies that delay the delivery of care while impacting providers’ productivity and satisfaction. As a result, many providers turn to their own or hospital-owned mobile devices for communication, which hospitals find difficult to protect against security breaches that compromise electronic patient health information (ePHI).

Why We Endorse the Secure Messaging Solution from Imprivata

After a thorough review of solutions designed to address this issue, the AHA has awarded its endorsement to the Imprivata Cortext® secure messaging platform based on the solution’s:

  • Sole focus on understanding and addressing the needs of the health care field

  • Multi-site messaging across multiple sites in the care continuum, which can improve care coordination, provider mobility, patient engagement and process efficiency
