THOUGHT LEADERSHIP WHITE PAPER
ROLE OF IDENTITY GOVERNANCE AND ADMINISTRATION WITHIN HEALTHCARE
HOW IGA SOLVES THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY’S SECURITY NEEDS
As providers and patients increasingly access and exchange Protected Health Information (PHI) from a variety of online and mobile locations, the healthcare industry finds itself struggling to meet new Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) requirements.

- digital entity lifecycle and access rights across multiple applications and systems
- potential Segregation of Duties violations
- data access in a way that prevents information blocking while maintaining privacy and security
