Supporting clinical staff to provide safe clinical care via role based access control (RBAC)
Careful control of staff systems access and permission levels is vital to ensure confidentiality, minimise clinical risk and protect patient safety.
Changes in personnel, processes and workflows can lead to staff having inappropriate access in Cerner, increasing clinical risk to patients. To eliminate that risk, a tightly controlled access environment is required.
Keystream has worked on large, complex Cerner projects for a number of NHS Trusts, including the implementation of RBAC 27.2 model at St Georges Universities NHS Foundation Trust.
We have teams of experienced contractors, from programme managers to architects, testers to floorwalkers, covering the end-to-end implementation life cycle.
We can take ownership of the end-to-end delivery of your RBAC project. Once implementation is complete, we put in place robust processes to ensure role based access control doesn’t degenerate in the future.
