Imprivata Signs On Scottish Healthcare System

7/28/11

Lexington, MA-based Imprivata, a security tech company focused on health IT applications, said today it has landed a multimillion-dollar deal with NHS Scotland to provide secure access technology to that country’s healthcare workers. No further financial details were given in the release, but another report puts the price at 1.8 million pounds (just under U.S. $3 million) over five years. The product will be delivered in partnership with Northgate Managed Services, an IT services firm. Imprivata, which is backed by a number of Boston venture firms, has developed a system that lets clinicians and other users sign on to their computer once, instead of needing multiple passwords for different applications, to do things like access health records. Xconomy first wrote about Imprivata’s single sign-on technology in 2007.
