Arkansas Children’s Hospital Expands Service Engagement with CynergisTek to Enhance Security and Privacy Program While Reducing Costs, Inefficiencies Across Organization
Mission Viejo, CA – May 10, 2018 — CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in healthcare cybersecurity and information management, today announced that Arkansas Children’s Hospital, one of the country’s largest pediatric hospitals, has expanded its relationship, adding on additional privacy and cybersecurity services. Specifically, Arkansas Children’s will now leverage CynergisTek’s Compliance Assist Partner Program (CAPP). The pediatric hospital already engages with CynergisTek for its Managed Print Service (MPS) program.
Arkansas Children’s first contracted with CynergisTek in 2015 for its HIPAA Risk Assessment program to identify security and privacy vulnerabilities, as well as assist in ensuring compliance with HIPAA and Meaningful Use regulations. The provider organization then adopted the company’s MPS program in 2017 to develop and execute a tailored approach to optimize its print environment, which includes nearly 1,000 devices, while reducing excess costs and inefficiencies across the organization. Arkansas Children’s also announced it is leveraging another one of CynergisTek’s managed services, its CAPP offering, which provides privacy, security, and compliance expertise to refine these programs through routine assessments, testing, and ongoing advisory services.
“By partnering with CynergisTek for several of its managed services offerings, the company has become a trusted advisor that we know we can rely on to ensure our privacy and security needs are met,” said Jonathan Goldberg, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Arkansas Children’s. “Having complete confidence that we are secure and compliant allows us to focus on our number one priority – providing the best possible care for our pediatric patients.”
Provider organizations can augment existing security and privacy programs by partnering with CynergisTek and implementing its suite of cybersecurity and information management services. CynergisTek’s MPS and CAPP solutions are fully customizable to meet the unique needs of each organization it works with, and provides holistic, ongoing support for all of its clients in order to maintain vigilance in security and privacy programs.
“As security threats continue to increase in both frequency and complexity, more provider organizations are looking for support in meeting data protection challenges, from print security to compliance support,” said Mac McMillan, CEO and President, CynergisTek. “We are so glad to have Arkansas Children’s join our CAPP community and look forward to supporting them by providing the critical advice and comprehensive support they need to adapt to the shifting threat landscape and further mature their security and privacy programs.”
