With the NHS being responsible for safeguarding an abundance of sensitive patient medical data, it’s critical that they are able to authenticate healthcare workers before they access this data. But this process isn’t a straightforward one and can make it harder for NHS bodies to partner with new technology partners that will help them enhance their offering.
To combat this, the NHS introduced smartcards – a quick and easy way to authenticate healthcare workers and control access without delay.
6B partners with digital health innovators across the UK to simplify the authentication process for end user organisations through developing single sign on and NHS smartcard integrations. The work we do in NHS smartcard and NHS Care Identity Service 2 integration offers organisations who are wishing to work with the NHS a secure, compliant and proven solution to an age-old problem.
