Press Release

Forward Advantage is pleased to announce the availability of Imprivata Mobile Device Access (MDA)

Enable fast, secure access to clinical mobile devices and their installed applications.

Forward Advantage, a leading healthcare IT provider and certified Imprivata® partner, is pleased to announce the availability of Imprivata Mobile Device Access (MDA)™. This exciting new solution is the first to bring mobile authentication to healthcare by extending the simple and secure workflow of Imprivata OneSign® single sign-on, also sold and implemented by Forward Advantage.

Imprivata MDA enables fast, secure access to clinical mobile devices and their installed applications. End users simply tap their proximity badge to unlock a mobile device and enter a single, network password. After this initial entry, a badge tap is all that is required during the hospital’s predetermined grade grace period.

The popularity of mobile clinical devices has grown exponentially over the years; however, many hospitals find bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies difficult to implement due to security factors. Shared, mobile devices alleviate these security concerns but remain largely unused if clinical access isn’t streamlined.


“By implementing Imprivata MDA, the expectation is that adoption of mobile clinical devices will increase, especially among nurses who use them the most. We believe in creating a better healthcare experience with rapid, secure access to clinical information and are fortunate to be a reseller for Imprivata. Their solutions complement our own, and we bring the level of expertise necessary in a healthcare setting.”

- Mike Knebel, VP of Sales and Business Development for Forward Advantage

Imprivata MDA works with clinical mobile computers using the Android operating system and works with a wide range of EHR and solutions providers. More details can be found here.
