Neoteris, a provider of instant virtual extranet (IVE) products, has announced that Partners HealthCare, an integrated health care system that provides services from preventive primary care to long-term care, has chosen Neoteris' IVE to deliver secure access to healthcare applications and patient information for doctors and users. Partners HealthCare, founded in 1994, provides an integrated healthcare delivery system that offers patients a continuum of coordinated high-quality care, including primary care and specialty physicians, community hospitals, academic medical centers, specialty facilities, community health centers, and other health-related entities. Powered by Neoteris' IVE, member physicians and administrators now remotely access the Partners Community Healthcare Inc. network (PCHInet), a portal of healthcare applications, patient records and test results, general medical information, and message boards, from any computing device enabled with a Web browser. The IVE interoperates with RSA SecurID two-factor authentication, from RSA Security, which is Partners HealthCare's authentication technology for two-factor authentication for Neoteris. Neoteris' IVE is designed to help healthcare organizations provide electronic access to protected health information (PHI) and applications while complying with upcoming Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act's (HIPAA) security and privacy regulations in areas of authentication, encryption, information access and audit controls, alarms, auditing, and more. Neoteris' IVE products allow healthcare administrators to provision instant, secure access for caregivers to specified network applications and patient information. With caregivers' time and patients' security and privacy in mind, the Neoteris products reduce the cost, complexity, and security risks associated with traditional access technologies such as virtual private networks and custom extranets.
