We’ve developed an integrator so that the NHS Electronic Staff Records (ESR) system can interact with its identity management systems.
The NHS Electronic Staff Records (ESR) system was built to drive efficiency and productivity improvements across the NHS. But direct data communication with ESR is not possible.
This means NHS Trusts wishing to use ESR data to manage their identity management system have to export and import text files.
This slow, manual process means information is often out-of-date, leaving new staff and movers unable to access resources in time.
Now Identity Experts have solved this problem with our ESR integrator.
The ESR integrator
This unique solution takes an automatic feed from ESR and enables the captured information to be used as the foundation for your Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) solution.
As well as improving corporate service functions, like recruitment and HR, it can bring additional benefits when the information it holds can be utilised by other systems.
For example, it will greatly improve the efficiency and accuracy of your identity management solution, by utilising the ‘Gold standard’ personnel information stored in ESR to provision and update it.
This is ideal for joiner/mover/leaver processes, which will ensure that new starters are provisioned immediately, giving them immediate access to the resources they need to do their job. It will also update movers and remove leavers straight away, ensuring they can access or are blocked from critical systems as appropriate.
“The time consuming and manual process we had previously has been made completely redundant. Now, with the automated and standardised ESR to MIM to AD integration, a change in ESR automatically updates all our other systems.”
Nigel Hall, Head of ICT, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
How it works
The Identity Experts ESR integrator is a comprehensive solution for utilising your data in ESR to seamlessly provision your MIM solution. It will:
- Automatically retrieve delta changes via a secure FTP process
- Processes the data
- Synchronises this information into a database
- Imports the data to your MIM solution to allow full Joiner/Mover/ Leaver process automation
- Bi-directional to ensure information captured in subsidiary systems is updated to ESR
