Increased Scope of Services to Include University
A leading provider of IT Advisory and Managed Services for the healthcare industry, announced today a major academic medical center renewed its annual Risk Assessment Managed Services contract and increased the scope of work to include assessments at not only its medical center, but at the greater university organization as well. CynergisTek performs security risk assessments utilizing its proprietary Delphiis Risk Manager SaaS application suite on behalf of the client, increasing cost efficiency and effectiveness of over 60% from previous assessment methods used. The academic medical center, a Top Ten Honor Roll of Best Hospitals as stated by U.S. News 2014-15, became an CynergisTek customer through the Delphiis acquisition in July 2014. The name has not been disclosed for confidentiality reasons.
“Academic medical centers are experiencing an explosion in the amount and complexity of risk assessments they must perform in their environments to comply with a myriad of regulations from HIPAA to FERPA,” says Mike Gentile, Executive Vice President of Innovation and Security. Managing this workload solely with internal resources becomes difficult as internal resourcing is often fixed while the number of assessments and the skill-set required to perform them is not. “Our Risk Assessment Managed Service provides these academic medical centers the most practical and cost effective solution to support these workload bursts and complexity requirements either alongside internal resources or in a completely outsourced model,” continued Mr. Gentile.
