We are excited to work with Guy and his team as they execute their identity and access management vision across fifteen NMPG clinics," said Zorawar Biri Singh, president and chief executive officer of Encentuate.
By leveraging the badges that the staff already carries, NMPG avoided costs associated with provisioning additional tokens.
NMPG is dedicated to making its patients' healthcare experiences simple, secure and efficient by providing them information, access, and tools to get what they need, when they need it," said Lyle Berkowitz, MD, Medical Director of Clinical Information Systems for NMPG.
As one of the largest and most progressive primary care medical groups in the Chicagoland area, NMPG has successfully introduced several electronic services to their patients over the past several years.
In addition to current web portal members, all NMPG patients will be able to register for this private, secure suite of online healthcare communication services, which can improve face-to-face visits and reduce the problems associated with "phone tag" in normal environments.
NMPG providers can then respond with treatment instructions, self-care information and, when appropriate, a prescription.
NMPG brings the exceptional quality of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and its affiliated physicians to convenient locations throughout Chicago's neighborhoods.
