Health Intelligence, a joint venture operation responsible for managing the ICT services of Capital and Coast District Health Board and Taranaki District Health Board, is developing an identity management strategy.
The joint venture is seeking to simplify provisioning, access control, password management and identity lifecycle of information systems for its DHB customers.
It is asking system vendors to present their solutions as part of its planning and to help it understand the software and facilitate centralised identity management, the matching and collation of identities into an single store, simplified, centralised and automated account provisioning, password management and single sign-on among other requirements.
While Health Intelligence operates a Microsoft Active Directory environment, there are multiple proprietary stores of identity throughout the DHBs, project documents say.
Applications are deliveredto fat-client desktop PCs, thin-client via Citrix and dumb terminals and thin-client via the browser to web based applications.
