Edina, MN, United States, 2011/09/07 - BVRMC selects Indigo Identityware to provide strong authentication and single sign-on for their virtual desktop environment - IndigoIdware.com.
Buena Vista Regional Medical Center (BVRMC) has implemented Indigo Identityware as their strong authentication and single sign-on identity management solution. They choose Indigo as part of their overall initiative to deliver the fastest, easiest and most secure way for end users to access their patient data. This initiative also included a migration to HP thin clients from thick clients and a move from a local application presentation to a Citrix XenDesktop presentation strategy.
BVRMC’s Chief Information Officer, Brian Granville, who joined them in mid-2010, was drawn to this institution because of its quality reputation as well as for the opportunity to design a cutting-edge information technology infrastructure and roadmap that included productive technologies such as thin client computing and virtual desktops which positively affect the cost and quality equation in healthcare.
“We are fortunate to be able to plan an overall IT strategy which includes the latest in thin client, virtual desktop and identity management solutions. We selected Indigo Identityware because their strong authentication, single sign-on and workflow management software integrates seamlessly with these other cutting-edge solutions,” said Brian Granville.
“If we had to design the ideal scenario for quality healthcare, cutting-edge technology, and progressive IT leadership, it would be Buena Vista Regional Medical Center. We are flattered to be part of their overall identity management and health IT vision,” said Tom Rheineck, President and CEO of Indigo Identityware.
