Ponemon Institute Survey Results: How Single Sign-On is Changing Healthcare – SSO Vendor Comparison

by Imprivata


This report reveals the findings of the Ponemon Institute Survey: How Single Sign-On Is Changing Healthcare and provides a detailed analysis of single sign-on vendors. The report shows that of the >400 users of SSO technology surveyed, it was determined that SSO technology saves clinicians from 8 to 15 minutes a day depending on the SSO solution utilized, which can be translated into 103-191 hours per year.


Single sign-on automates the login process, enabling clinicians and IT practitioners to login only

once to their desktop in order to gain faster access to applications – removing clicks, keystrokes

and complex passwords. In light of the rigorous data security requirements in the healthcare

industry, SSO and authentication management are almost always deployed together. The

combination is growing in popularity because, as shown by our research, it increases employee

productivity, reduces helpdesk calls, and strengthens security.


We surveyed a total of 404 individuals who work for healthcare organizations and who use SSO

technology. They work in private and public hospitals or integrated delivery healthcare systems.

Most of the respondents work in IT functions such as operations, data security, IT compliance,

quality assurance, network management, helpdesk operations and other key MIS functions. Of

the 404 participants in the study, 65 are customers of Imprivata OneSign.
