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.
The state of Utah announced its cloud computing strategy in 2009 as a way to improve service to state agencies and other customers. In 2011, after its initial success, the state is preparing to update that plan to build on those early successes and identify how it will use the cloud to further enhance productivity and gain greater efficiencies. This presentation will examine the first two years of Utah’s cloud initiative as well as how the state is preparing to leverage the experience gained during this period.
NASCIO and the National Association of State Personnel Executives recently hosted a discussion on the state government IT workforce, featuring an overview of State IT Workforce: Under Pressure, a January 2011 publication by NASCIO. The agenda included key state government information technology issues, including trends in government’s use of social media, featuring recent research by Jerry Mechling, Research Vice President, at Gartner.
Cloud computing platforms are a high priority for state and local government Chief Information Officers. Recently, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded contracts to provide services under a new Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Blanket Purchase Agreement. The goal of the webinar is to have GSA discuss how state and local governments can purchase services through this cooperative purchasing agreement. GSA will also discuss how the contracts were awarded, the services offered, common requirements, data control, security & privacy among other contract details.
Please submit advance questions on the registration page. Webinar information will be sent to registrants prior to the call. This webinar is restricted to government only.

This session will show how information exchange standards provide strategic capabilities that are making New York City a connected city. As integrated components of the enterprise architecture, standards based information exchanges allow information to be assembled, presented and shared across a wide agency user base.
NASCIO was pleased to collaborate with the TechAmerica and Grant Thornton on a survey of State CIOs which sheds light on how CIOs around the country drive change in the way government works and enable states to do more with less. “State governments will continue to endure tough fiscal conditions, which makes the state CIO's job even more challenging. However, the results of the survey clearly indicate this situation presents opportunities for CIOs to execute on cost-saving strategies, innovative business models, and advance the use of emerging technologies” said Doug Robinson, Executive Director of NASCIO.
Federal, state, local, and tribal governments currently issue numerous credentials to constituents for access to facilities or services based on a variety of endorsements. Many of the endorsements provide citizens with access to federally funded programs, but the issuance of credentials remains program-specific and has become a redundant process for many agencies and departments. By issuing a digital identity that has multi-platform credentialing options, it will result in improved efficiency and convenience for both users and issuers. To the extent such credential is honored by commercial entities, it will also improve efficiency and security of commercial transactions, including on-line transactions.
