In a blog post, Okta recently spoke with a CIO of a large healthcare provider whose top priority this year is “restoring joy to the medical profession.” His goal is to eliminate the friction caused by the technical burden of adopting and maintaining IT systems. This mostly falls on healthcare professionals, between logging in reports, answering emails, and entering data that becomes so repetitive that it keeps them from doing what they love.
That is why Okta has announced that they have joined Align Biopharma. Align Biopharma is an industry standards organization that’s working to reduce identity-related hassles for healthcare professionals. An identity standard for healthcare professionals will pave the way to reducing the number of accounts and passwords a practitioner must remember, and put their valuable time where it belongs – with patients, not with password resets.
Okta’s partnership with Align Biopharma gives light to their partners and possible business consumers. It shows that even a massive health industry is utilizing the problem of unnecessary password resets and grinding, repetitive logs. Iron Cove Solutions is proud of this step Okta has made into an even bigger market than they were already in.
Thanks to the cloud, it’s now possible to solve a challenge of this scale. But technology alone is not enough. It takes an industry standard to align disparate organizations to trust and connect to a unified healthcare provider identity.
