TrueVault Connect Identity Management Solution Launched

TrueVault has announced that its new identity management solution, TrueVault Connect, first released to a select group of customers in January 2015, is now available to all TrueVault customers.

TrueVault Connect is an identity management solution that allows businesses to easily share sensitive date with third-party applications in a secure manner. The solution allows customers to maintain ownership of their data, while implementing data strategies to allow them to easily and securely acquire, exchange, and retire data through third party apps and retain control over the types of data that can be accessed as well as how connections to data can be achieved.

The solution allows standards-based authentication to be built into applications quickly and easily, with minimal engineering time and simplifies data exchanges with third party apps. Through TrueVault Connect it is possible for multiple data sources to share a single, secure data warehouse.

The solution is available as a white label product and can be customized to meet the requirements of each customer to maintain a consistent look and feel. Customers can grant access to data to a third-party application, and users of that application are able to securely retrieve sensitive patient data using the same login credentials that they have used to login to the application portal.

The solution incorporates a range of access control and management features, including single sign-on, to ensure security, which means customers can improve data access without having to develop their own secure solutions. This can significantly shorten the time-to-market for third party apps while simultaneously improving the user experience.

One of the early customers to adopt the solution is using it to allow board-certified physicians to remotely access ePHI through the CirrusMD telemedicine platform. Subscribers can access the CirrusMD platform, which is granted access to TrueVault-stored patient data via the Auth 2.0 protocol. This has saved considerable time and money implementing the company’s mobile connectivity roadmap.
