UniPrint.net, a virtual printing solution provider has partnered with healthcare IT security firm Imprivata as the newest member of Imprivata’s Developer Partner (IDP) program. As a member of the developer program, UniPrint.net will integrate with Imprivata OneSign® Print Connector to establish connectivity between UniPrint’s™ patented Universal Printer Driver and Virtual Print Queue, and Imprivata OneSign.
This integrated solution enables clinicians that use virtual desktops, to securely and conveniently print Protected Health Information (PHI) to any printer, by using the same proximity card they use to log in and securely access patient data. The joint solution increases security and compliance for healthcare providers by eliminating the printing of private health information on unattended printers.
Traditionally, location-based printing has been a challenge for even the most efficient hospitals. Healthcare professionals may inadvertently send prescriptions and private patient data to print on the wrong printer or a printer in a different facility, potentially exposing PHI and violating regulatory requirements.
David Fung, CEO of UniPrint.net comments, “Imprivata OneSign streamlines access, giving healthcare providers increased productivity, better compliance, stronger security, and reduced IT costs. Caregivers can now spend more time with patients and less time signing on to systems. When Imprivata OneSign is deployed in a virtual environment, a user’s desktop follows them as they roam around the workplace. An essential part of that workflow optimization is enabling secure, on demand printing to the correct printer. With a proven track record in healthcare, UniPrint is ideally suited to provide mobile healthcare workers with the ability to conveniently and securely print documents.”
