UPMC to Secure Access for 75,000 IT System Users at Midsize Hospitals with Robust Identity Management Suite
By Greg Jensen on May 10, 2013
Committed to developing and delivering life-changing medicine, University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is a US$10 billion, integrated, global health
enterprise and one of the leading health systems in the United States. UPMC
operates more than 20 academic, community, and specialty hospitals and 400
outpatient sites; employs more than 3,200 physicians; and offers an array of
rehabilitation, retirement, and long-term care facilities. It is also
Pennsylvania’s largest employer and the first nonprofit health system to fully
adopt Sarbanes-Oxley standards.
A recognized innovator in information technology, UPMC has deployed an electronic health record across its hospitals and has implemented a semantic interoperability solution to unify information from multiple systems.
UPMC had an in-house-developed identity and access management system in place for eight years. As the healthcare organization’s identity management requirements continue to evolve and become more complex, it decided to move to a commercial, off-the-shelf offering and chose Oracle Identity and Access Management Suite. The solution will provide UPMC with the scalability it requires―managing identities and access for more than 75,000 system users, which include employees, as well as contract staff and medical students on rotation in the organization. It will also deliver the flexibility UPMC requires to continue to adapt its environment to accommodate new systems and requirements.
