In healthcare, HIPAA rules the day. HIPAA is mandating increased access to medical records and increased security. Most analysts agree that remote access will require strong authentication for HIPAA-compliance. Moreover, many health providers need access to information from multiple sources, most of which are different entities: labs, clinics, insurance providers. Patients are increasingly demanding that healthcare services be delivered online - they compare their hospitals to and Delta these days. Many hospitals are rolling out 802.11 networks to provide better access without the cost of wires, but that only increases risks. Meanwhile, healthcare providers continue to be squeezed to deliver for the lowest costs possible.

Most healthcare institutions have gone with a best-of-breed approach for IT. However, this has created a nightmare of multiple accounts and log-ins for employees and doctors. Single sign-on is the goal for these institutions, but with SSO comes the 'keys to the kingdom risk, that one username and password will give access to too much information. WiKID System can protect companies from that risk.
