CommonWell Health Alliance's newest member is Imprivata

The CommonWell Health Alliance added Imprivata, a health IT security company, as a general member.

Imprivata will share its expertise in the area of patient identification to help further CommonWell Health Alliance's mission of enabling universal access to health data.

Imprivata's PatientSecure is a positive patient identification solution that accurately matches individual patients to their EHRs. This allows clinicians to retrieve health records using biometric identification across multiple points of care. The solution aims to reduce the incidence of duplicate medical records and insurance fraud, while enhancing patient safety.

CommonWell's members use their unique areas of expertise to produce and deploy patient-centric interoperability services.

"To reach that goal we need to ensure the positive identification of patients, and the ability to unequivocally match patients to their health records," said Gus Malezis, president and CEO of Imprivata.
