SILVER SPRING, Md. (PRWEB) May 14, 2019
BlueNovo, Inc., (http://www.bluenovo.com) a leading provider of Health IT and technology services and solutions, specifically for Community Health Centers, recently announced its strategic affiliation with PrivaPlan (http://www.privaplan.com) to provide an expanded suite of network support and cybersecurity service offerings. These collaborative services and solutions are designed to enable community-based healthcare organizations to mitigate risks and create a cybersecurity infrastructure to help limit exposure and liability.
Healthcare has surpassed finance as the number one sector for cyberattacks. This partnership between BlueNovo and PrivaPlan will enable community-based healthcare organizations to implement best practices when it comes to preventing potential threats and cyberattacks.
BlueNovo and PrivaPlan will combine to provide comprehensive cybersecurity solutions which will include security assessments and remediation services. As part of this offering, BlueNovo and PrivaPlan will be focused on conducting in-depth reviews of an organization’s current state of security. These assessments will identify weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and risks and, subsequently, provide tailored solutions to ensure that all systems are secure and compliant with today’s standards.
In addition, the BlueNovo / PrivaPlan partnership will include endpoint management and proactive monitoring designed to identify and quarantine threats from malware and other attacks. Custom Policy and Procedures toolkits, designed to meet business practices and provide the guidance to ensure regulatory requirements are being met, will also be a part of the combined offering.
“We believe our partnership with PrivaPlan will enable health centers to minimize the threat of their organizations being compromised while implementing industry best practices,” said Roopak Manchanda, BlueNovo’s CEO. “PrivaPlan’s HIPAA and cybersecurity expertise is a natural extension of our security practice and will provide a tremendous benefit to health centers and give them the tools they need to be protected,” said Manchanda.
“Similar to BlueNovo, we have been partnering with CHCs for a decade. This new partnership will give us the opportunity to scale and offer a comprehensive suite of security services and offerings to the market,” said David Ginsberg, PrivaPlan’s CEO. “We are extremely excited about this opportunity to partner with an organization that is tightly aligned with the mission of CHCs” said Ginsberg.
Given the critical nature of a potential security breach, it is vital that organizations develop protocols and mechanisms to protect patient data and adhere to HIPAA standards. At a time when FQHCs are experiencing challenges in attracting and retaining cybersecurity resources, outsourcing cybersecurity initiatives becomes a viable and cost-effective option. The BlueNovo / PrivaPlan suite of services will provide a comprehensive, long-term cyber security solution for FQHCs.
