  • Access to information from key healthcare applications including mainframe applications, Web-based applications, EMR data and leading software from Siemens, EPIC, Kronos, Meditech, Cerner, Lawson and Allscripts, among others.
  • The ability to enforce corporate security and policies by casting a bright light on security breaches and exceptions.
