Microsoft is partnering with Imprivata, a health IT security company, to develop an identity and access management cloud platform for healthcare customers.

Three notes:

1. On April 30, Imprivata rolled out the first phase of the project, which features single-sign-on access for clinical workstations and mobile devices connected to Microsoft Azure.

2. Imprivata's Healthcare Seamless SSO allows clinical and nonclinical Microsoft Azure users to use the health IT company's tap-in and tap-out capabilities, which grant badge tap access into Microsoft Officer 365 and other applications connected to Microsoft's cloud-based applications.

3. Imprivata has more than 1,940 healthcare customers, which will have access to the new cloud platform, Imprivata President and CEO Gus Malezis said in a news release emailed to Becker's Hospital Review.
