New Client Fairview Health Services Selects CynergisTek for Proactive Approach to Security

Minneapolis, MN based health system determines managed service will help identify and address security risks

CynergisTek (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leading cybersecurity firm helping more than 1,000 healthcare facilities navigate emerging security and privacy issues, today announced that Fairview Health Services, one of Minnesota’s largest health systems, has joined the growing CTEK managed services client base.

During the managed service engagement, CynergisTek will perform periodic and recurring comprehensive risk assessments and provide advisory services supporting remediation efforts.

“We looked to CynergisTek to help us identify and reduce risk because their methodology adds in a human layer and skillset that we believe will aid us in building and maintaining a strong cyber resilient program,” says James Brady, Chief Information Security Officer and Vice President of Infrastructure for Fairview Health Services.

In CynergisTek’s third annual report, Moving Forward: Setting the Direction, it identified that organizations who have invested resources, time and money into security show year-over-year improvement in their NIST CSF scores. Through CynergisTek’s managed services program, clients have the foundation to implement a three-year plan to keep improving and maturing their security program while maintaining a predictable year-over-year budget.

“We are delighted to have Fairview Health Services as a new CynergisTek client. The momentum we’re seeing from some of the largest health systems joining the CTEK family in a time when COVID-19 has disrupted the industry is a testament to our reputation and the expertise of our people,” said Caleb Barlow, CEO and president at CynergisTek. Mr. Barlow went on to say “This recent signing coupled with the Valley Health System release we made last week is a positive sign that healthcare is trending to the next normal – the necessity to validate security effectiveness in a time when employees are working from home, the expansion of the network and its complexity has increased along with the brazen targeting from malicious hackers, like we saw in the recent Universal Health System ransomware attack, are no longer giving healthcare a reprieve.”

Chesapeake Regional Information System for Our Patients (CRISP) Selects Get Real Health for Patient Portal Solution

Maryland Patients Will Have Secure Access to Their Health Data Starting With COVID-19 Test Results

Get Real Health, a member of the CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) family of companies and a provider of comprehensive patient engagement tools, announced today that the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), Maryland’s statewide health information exchange, has selected Get Real Health’s patient engagement platform to help improve secure access to COVID-19 test results for patients in Maryland.

The first phase of the project will be rolled out across the state of Maryland and is expected to be available in November 2020. Included in the first phase is the proven Get Real Health patient engagement platform that will enable patients to access their COVID-19 test results quickly and easily in a secure environment. Available in both a web-based portal and native mobile application, individuals will have access to their COVID-19 test results anytime, anywhere for added efficiency and convenience.

This patient engagement solution will seamlessly integrate with the Health Information Exchange (HIE) currently in place as part of the CRISP suite of tools, facilitating the secure exchange of data from disparate providers and organizations throughout the region.

“These are unprecedented times related to protecting public health in our community due to COVID-19, and we are honored to work with the official health exchange for the state of Maryland,” said Robin Wiener, president of Get Real Health. “Helping to ease the stress of COVID-19 testing and playing a role in improving the health and safety of our fellow citizens is personal to us. As a Maryland company, we have benefited from the support of many state and local organizations over the years. Being a part of this project brings our mission full circle.”

“It is critical that patients have their COVID-19 test results as quickly as possible,” said Craig Behm, Maryland executive director of CRISP. “Although most patients will receive information directly from their physicians, those going to walk-up testing sites may need results through CRISP instead. Get Real Health’s focus on access and interoperability make them great partners in this endeavor.”

“The importance of patient involvement and empowerment in managing their care is more important than ever as we manage through this pandemic,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “We look forward to the benefits and impact that the Get Real Health patient engagement platform will have in Maryland and other states for years to come.”
