Cybersecurity. Made Possible.

Hospitals, clinics, and healthcare providers are facing a huge wall of challenges from both traditional and completely new sources.

Meeting, and keeping up with the complex HIPAA regulations and FDA requirements on a variety of issues - for instrumentation, staff, and institutions is a never-ending process that takes up a large amount of time and brings significant potential risk.

The big new issue that should be front and center of your planning across everything is cybersecurity. With high profile attacks coming more often and hitting more institutions - healthcare organizations being amongst the most common targets due to the wealth of information that they hold.

Highly connected systems; the scale of the IT infrastructure, overlapping systems, bluetooth/wireless connected devices and data constantly in transit increases the size of the threat landscape—Considering the challenges of interconnectivity requires your time to develop an IT architecture including an outside-in approach to care and exchange of data and information that is cyber secure more than ever.

Having to manage external partner connectivity makes cybersecurity a daunting task and takes up an extensive time by you and your staff. Connectivity with unknown services, features, institutions with different information feeds, includes understanding what you want to accomplish and knowing how to partner accordingly.
