Tap and Go Single Sign On for Epic - Imprivata

Imprivata Type 2, also called Epic Secure Switch, allows for quick, easy sign in and the continuation of the most recent Epic session with one tap of your badge.

It is best for patient exam rooms and workstations used by multiple users, and offers secure switching between different Epic users while continuing the last Epic session.  Note that you must manually log in only once per day and will then be able to tap in for the next 12 hours.

A print friendly Imprivata Tap and Go Quick Guide (PDF) is also available, covering the same information below.
