Constellation, Inc., recently announced a strategic partnership with Imprivata, a healthcare IT security company offering technology that addresses two critical needs: safeguarding electronic systems and healthcare data as well as improving efficiency in the way clinical work is done.

gle sign-on technology can save typical care providers up to 45 minutes per shift by allowing them to log into electronic health systems just once and eliminating the need to remember and enter their usernames and passwords countless additional times. The technology’s advanced authentication ensures that those who sign in to the system are authorized to do so, a key protection for system and data security.
“Our agreement with Imprivata marks a significant milestone in Constellation’s strategy to offer solutions that support the success of physicians, hospitals and senior-living and long-term care communities beyond medical professional liability insurance,” said Bill McDonough, Constellation CEO. “Our partnership will enable us to help healthcare organizations and clinicians reduce time spent on administrative tasks and regain time for patient care. Optimizing care team time provides both business and personal benefits, including improved satisfaction for both patients and clinicians.”
“Constellation is a trusted organization with an excellent reputation,” said Wes Wright, chief technology officer at Imprivata. “Through Constellation, we’ll be able to deliver the benefits of our platform to a broader network of providers – and help them better leverage both talent and time to deliver care more efficiently and securely.”
Under the agreement, Constellation’s medical professional liability companies – MMIC, UMIA and Arkansas Mutual Insurance Co. – will exclusively market Imprivata’s portfolio of healthcare IT security solutions in the 16 states where they serve customers. Those states include Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Constellation’s collaboration with Imprivata marks its third expansion of services beyond medical professional liability insurance. Earlier, it introduced the Physician Empowerment Suite, an online platform designed to help healthcare providers deliver a better patient experience and improve operational performance and effectiveness. And in January 2018, it established a strategic collaboration with CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), a leading healthcare professional services, consulting and advisory firm.
