Use of disparate systems across the NHS has led to the fragmentation of a users profile, creating identity management challenges. With users now often having multiple profiles across several security databases, the risk of system misuse is becoming more difficult to manage.
BDS Solutions Personal Digital Identity (PDI) module delivers an intelligent matching engine. This creates and maintains links between multiple integrated systems, determining whether entries relate to an existing identity or a new identity needs to be created.
The powerful PDI data-matching engine joins records from numerous systems together, automatically linking to PDI records where possible. Where there is potential for a record to link to multiple PDI records, the software generates a partial match for review. Each potential match is given a score based on the number of elements that match, enabling the appropriate identity to be easily selected. Every individual identity is given a unique personal digital identity (PDI) key to enhance identity management control.
Benefits of Personal Digital Identity (PDI) for Enhanced Identity Management
- Quickly relate data from numerous systems
- Link non-Employee records to Directory Manager
- Assemble detailed digital profiles showing key data from linked systems
- Establish an wholly independent directory service
- Improve control over account provisioning
- Propagate changes to multiple systems at once
- Effectively control account life-cycles and guard against system misuse
- Ease future change to help the Trust manage new business challenges
Once in place, the PDI key can then be used as the unique identifier in Directory Manager to link identities with Active Directory. This avoids a relationship with identifiers that are subject to change or sometimes missing. With the PDI key, you are assured of a unique and immutable identifier for all systems’ users regardless of whether they are employees or not.
The resultant PDI digital profile is then visualised along with the full history of system changes relating to that identity. Eliminate your identity management challenges and remove the risk of multiple profiles across your systems.
