Success Story

Here is a success story of Imprivata helping Cumberland Healthcare that offers clinic, hospital, and specialty care services. Imprivata helped the clinic with virtual desktop infrastructure and single sign-on (SSO). The team at Cumberland first started considering a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementation when their laptops were in need of replacing. And though the initial driving factor was hardware replacement, there was also a growing focus on ensuring clinical productivity – clinicians would need to be able to access the virtual environment quickly and easily.

With both VDI and SSO implemented, Cumberland has seen increased provider satisfaction, due to time saved and improved patient interaction. The combination of the two solutions has also positively impacted Cumberland from an IT perspective, too. “We’ve had about a 50% reduction in password resets,” says Jason Morse, Director of Information Technology at Cumberland. “VDI with SSO definitely offers a convenience factor, but the combination also saves the help desk lots of time.”
