Educational Webinar Hosted by the NASCIO Health Care Working Group and the State Digital Identity Working Group on Identity and Access Management in Health IT

NASCIO invites you to join an archived educational webinar on Identity and Access Management in Health IT.

The webinar highlights the benefits of an enterprise strategy for identity management for health IT. Currently, states maintain a variety of duplicative identity records for their residents – as well as a plethora of credentials associated with those identity records. As a result, a single person carries multiple credentials for a single common purpose: to prove that person’s identity as the basis for granting a privilege. Maintaining these redundant systems is costly, inefficient, and rife with security, privacy and safety risks—both for the state as well as its constituents.
