Single Sign-On Solution in Progress for NHS Health Scotland

Single Sign-On Solution in Progress for NHS Health Scotland

Category: Development

According to a recent article by BBC News, some NHS staff are expected to remember up to 15 different passwords for the various systems they use. That’s a lot of passwords. It’s also a lot of confusion and frustration. The importance of features like single sign-on have never been more relevant when looking at the current IT challenges faced by the NHS and change has now become a necessity.


Not all NHS departments are sitting on their hands when it comes to single sign-on however. At Big Red, we are continually working with our client Healthy Working Lives (part of NHS Health Scotland) to achieve improvement. Indeed, the wheels are in motion to provide single sign-on between both of their systems that we have developed and that we continue to support them on. Being bogged down by numerous logins is a time-consuming and impractical approach for any business, but it is particularly unwelcome in an environment where time itself is often the most precious resource of all.


Big Red have been developing new and innovative software solutions for over 30 years and single sign-on is just one of the areas where NHS Health Scotland benefits from our ongoing partnership. Throughout our valued partnership, we have worked hand in hand to keep the design and layout of the systems in place to a high standard. Over the years, the systems that we have developed have grown considerably, evolving into the mission critical solutions they are today. It is vitally important that we adapt to our client’s needs and be on hand to implement quick solutions when required.


It is also imperative that our clients receive the best support on every platform that we develop and that is why we provide comprehensive user support for everything we do, from small CMS business websites to business-critical platforms. No matter the scale of the issue, our support team always respond to their support calls professionally and in a timely manner.


Yvonne Abson of NHS Health Scotland said, We all have too many passwords to remember and it’s a hectic task. No matter how easy it seems to remember when we set it, we always forget it the next time we need it. With Big Red we have been working on a solution that simplifies our customers experience and helps to increase productivity whilst keeping data secure.  We are looking forward to rolling out the Single Sign-On.


A long and illustrious history in the industry and developing innovative software solutions has meant we’ve built older, highly complex legacy systems all the way through to modern-day websites and Mobile Apps for our clients. The support and solutions we provide empowers them to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing needs and requirements of their business.


If your business is running with a series of off-the-shelf software solutions that struggle to pass data back and forth (including logins), Big Red can help you to create something as unique as your business. Something innovative.
