CynergisTek unveils IT security for smaller health orgs
Security IT company CynergisTek has released three new offerings designed for healthcare organizations with fewer than 100 beds to provide small healthcare organizations with IT and security services, which include IT support services, email technology and a HIPAA/HITECH security compliance review.

The IT services include help desk, network and desktop support, training, IT security compliance management, and testing, according to the Austin, Texas-based CynergisTek.

Providing small hospitals with email that is hosted and managed on the Google platform, and encrypted by Zix, organizations receive a domain, email (25 GB per user), Google applications (calendaring system, contacts), anti-virus/SPAM protection and 90 days of archival capabilities (used for e-discovery purposes and compliance).

Designed for smaller hospitals, the HIPAA/HITECH security compliance review service will help validate and strengthen compliance programs, the company stated. CynergisTek will work remotely with hospital staff via person-to-person teleconferences, web conferences and secure portals to review, analyze, test, document and make security recommendations.
