Identity management is changing healthcare by building a more secure, personalized, healthcare experience for patients and providers alike


A few years ago, patients walked in armed with internet research. Now, patients can track their health with digital devices and share their data with doctors and providers for more efficient, effective, and collaborative care.

With the ForgeRock Identity Platform, you can create digital identities for all your patients – while respecting patient privacy and assuring data security. This means you can partner with patients to collect data from apps, wearables, and digital health services to create one consistent, secure digital record – across offices and departments.

Healthcare providers use identity and access management from ForgeRock to deliver a top-notch patient experience that is secure, modern, and personal.


The modern healthcare ecosystem extends beyond the confines of the hospital and doctor’s office to the patient’s home and daily life.  A common patient view makes digital healthcare a reality.

  • Manage the identity data of patients across multiple, siloed identity systems
  • Integrate across legacy systems, avoiding need for expensive “rip and replace”
  • Allow home healthcare providers, family members, physicians and the patient to securely share data and information

The ForgeRock deployment will create a better user experience for customers and deliver strong backend support, while providing a flexible, architecturally elegant, & technologically superior solution for the company.”

Whether it’s remote health monitoring tools keeping people safe and healthy, wearables, or apps, the ability to connect anything provides more effective treatments and cost savings.

Simplify complex data sharing and consent experiences. Securely enable patient controlled data sharing across cloud, mobile, and IoT sources and comply with regulations.

  • Give patients control over their health data with user-managed access
  • Provide the ability to determine who gets access to their data, for how long, and under what conditions
  • Let patients authorize data sharing with the appropriate doctors and care providers for greater collaboration between healthcare stakeholders

We are able to design innovative data-sharing and consent technologies into our HealthSuite Digital Platform that make it possible to foster consumer and patient trust.”

ForgeRock applies advanced security throughout a digital session, not just at the door (initial authentication), like other vendors.

  • Apply contextual identity, adaptive risk and multi-factor authentication at authentication plus at any point throughout a digital session
  • Employ push authentication for passwordless login and frictionless multi-factor authentication, so higher security doesn’t have to mean more hassle for the end user

 Since we’re in the healthcare market, it’s imperative that everything is secure and that we have a high level of confidence in identifying the individuals who are on our system and what they’re doing with it. Without an effective identity management strategy, our business would stop.”
