  • Cybersecurity, Cybercrime and Data Breaches: Healthcare Under Attack

    As a healthcare IT professional, you face the dual burdens of safeguarding the most sought-after type of data for hackers — while also keeping your company compliant with aggressively enforced data-privacy laws.

    This paper discusses how these unique burdens —cybersecurity and regulatory compliance — affect your industry generally and your organization in particular. It also offers a simple, cost-effective solution that help you address both of these challenges in one area of your IT’s infrastructure that probably receives little attention but nonetheless remains a target: FAXING.

  • The Value of Cloud Fax for Hospitals and Health Systems

    Today’s health insurer must comply with The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and a bevy of other regulations and requirements. HIPAA requirements include tasks like assessing vendors on a regular basis to ensure HIPAA compliance. Vendors found not in compliance can lead to stiff fines, as many well-known healthcare organizations can attest.

  • Modernizing Healthcare Technology for Today’s Needs and Tomorrow’s Possibilities
