ONE ID Application Federation

ONE ID Application Federation is a secure and convenient way for application service providers to allow health care users to login to their services. Using ONE ID Application Federation, you can make your services available to a wider audience and grow your active user base without the additional overhead of building and maintaining your own identity management solution.  

For example, a user in a hospital can use his / her hospital information system (HIS) credentials (username and password) to access your service. A user working in an organization that doesn’t manage its own credentials can use their ONE ID Accounts for the same purpose.

Digital health services currently leveraging ONE ID Application Federation include Ontario Telemedicine Network Hub and Screening Activity Report by Cancer Care Ontario.

ONE ID Application Federation is part of our robust identity platform that includes a set of systems and processes for creating and managing digital identities and access to services.
