“Auxilio’s second quarter was one of strategic execution, and great progress was made.  We continue making considerable investments to expand our service offering platform and bolster our sales and marketing capabilities in both Security and Managed Document Solutions.  It is great to see that effort translating into new contract wins like those recently announced, and we expect the benefits of these investments to become increasingly apparent through the balance of the year,” stated Joseph J. Flynn, CEO of Auxilio.  “While the legislative uncertainty in Washington and status of the Affordable Care Act has created a new dynamic for the industry to contend with, it also provides an unfiltered view of where our healthcare customer’s budget priorities lie.  While we did see some delivery delays during the quarter in non-core areas, it was increasingly apparent that security is viewed as an absolute necessity regardless of extraneous factors such as those in Washington.  There is undoubtedly an urgent need to better protect patient health information as it is travels across the enterprise, and we are well positioned to provide an efficient and secure solution to our customers.”
