Imprivata Tap and Go provides both a convenient and secure way to log into clinical workstations. Instead of having to enter your CWID and password multiple times a day, you can use Tap and Go to log into your computer by simply tapping your WCM badge to a special reader connected to your computer. This saves time for busy clinicians who need to access systems while meeting with patients, accessing reports, and more.

  • Installation of Imprivata software on selected workstations 

  • Enrollment assistance from ITS staff
