Healthcare

Empowering people to take charge of their health and wellbeing starts with digital identity.

Allowing people to manage their health is an important enabler to reduce the burden on healthcare services. Yet enabling people to access their records or communicate with their health professionals is often not as straightforward as it seems.

Security and privacy concerns can hamper the digital transformation process, resulting in seemingly never-ending PoC projects and lack of alignment of digital services. Consequently, there is a risk of patients and healthcare professionals reverting to inefficient legacy systems. However, if the challenge of digital identity is solved at the very start of digital transformation, all services are joined up to provide cohesive, secure user journeys.

Trusted identity at the core of digital health

We have been working with NHS and commercial healthcare organisations to enable seamless access to digital records and other services, driven by the end user and their requirements. Digital identity, assurance and validation of credentials are key themes that have a direct impact on the success of digital health.

Like other sectors, healthcare needs to be absolutely certain that an individual’s digital identity matches their real life identity. Asserting the correct level of authority or trust is paramount, before any digital exchange of information can take place. Once digital identities are successfully provided with the right levels of trust, there is a secure foundation to build out all future digital services.

Our solutions are:

  • Compatible – with your existing services and platforms
  • Auditable – so you have full insight into what digital transactions happened when and by whom.
  • Secure – so you can be confident only authorised users are accessing your system
  • Resilient – minimising the risk of attack or denial of service
