In modern healthcare organizations, thousands of identities are hard at work—and not all of them are clinicians. From nutritionists to pharmacists, pastors to janitors, social workers to biomedical scientists, the number of nondoctor healthcare workers soared 3,200 percent between 1970 and 2009.1 These fields have proliferated so quickly that healthcare provider organizations have struggled to keep up.

Meanwhile, healthcare data breaches recently reached record levels,2 and regulators are clamping down. No longer is it feasible to give users broad access to internal healthcare systems.

We unpack the themes that uniquely affect identity governance and administration (IGA) in healthcare and show you how SailPoint addresses them through an intelligent IGA platform. Browse the sections in the order they appear or skip directly to the one that’s of greatest interest.
