Cambio Cosmic handles high sensitivity information such as patient journals which requires a high level of protection while still maintaining an ease-of-use for end users.
To make sure user gain access to the Cambio Cosmic applications in a secure manner, a strong login-method must be used. However, the login, authentication, is not enough. The authentication only tells who you are but not what you are entitled to do in the target application. Your entitlements are fetched in the process called authorization.
On the swedish healthcare- and welfare market, the common login-method is to use a smart-card. The smart card, issued by SITHS or EFOS, allows the user to login to different applications, such as Cambio Cosmic.
Given the fact that some Cambio Cosmic applications are only used on tablet devices, it comes with some issues connected to the authentication procedure. How can I connect a smart card to the tablet? Is there a more mobile-device-friendly method, such as a mobile app, that can be used for login? Is it possible to handle a shared devices with multiple-users-per-device scenario when it comes to access?
Regardless device and authentication method, how can we be sure that the user only gains access to the Cambio Cosmic data he or she is allowed to, based on his or her entitlements?
Onboarding new organizations, known as provisioning, to use Cambio Cosmic should be quick and automatic without manual procedures.
Authentication and authorization
Securing authentication (login) and authorization (entitlements) to Cambio Cosmic is solved through technical industry integration standards.
For authentication on tablets, smart card readers can be used to utilize smart card authentication. This, however, comes with technical issues and a lack of user-friendliness. Instead, new initiatives are coming which utilize login via a mobile app for login instead of a smart card. Mobile EFOS is such an initiative. PhenixID OneTouch is another such solution.
These mobile apps can be installed on cell phones or tablets.
The mobile app login methods can also be used to login to Cambio Cosmic on a desktop. The user initiates the login procedure on the desktop by entering a userID, for example a HSA-id. Using the mobile app, the login procedure is completed by entering a pin code on the mobile phone. This is called out-of-band authentication.
Some mobile apps for login allows for many users which solves the issue with multiple-users-per-device.
Automatic user provisioning is a feature that will handle the process of onboarding new organizations to Cambio Cosmic applications.
