The Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has awarded ESAC, Inc. a multiyear contract to support Federal Identification Management Best Practices and Pilot Oversight in the Healthcare Setting (FIM).
November 10, 2016
FIM focuses on technical assistance to help the Government further the goal of creating a program of identity management for the health care sector. It includes subject matter expertise, targeted support and pilot guidance to a National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) grantee implementing a federated identity management solution involving multiple healthcare organizations that enables patients and providers to use a single credential that can be trusted to allow access to health information (medical records). The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC or Strategy) charts a course for the public and private sectors to collaborate to raise the level of trust associated with the identities of individuals, organizations, networks, services, and devices involved in online transactions. The goal of the NSTIC grant is to foster innovation that can make critical services more convenient and trustworthy for consumers while strengthening online security.
ESAC continues to be an exceptional collaborator providing on-site contractors with both the expertise for building new tools and data integration platforms, and the subject matter expertise in the biosciences needed to manage projects and provide significant added value beyond the technology development.
