Multi-Million Dollar, Five-Year Agreement Will Help Provider Organization Transform its Print Environment
Mission Viejo, CA April 3, 2018 — CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in healthcare cybersecurity and information management, today announced that an award-winning health system in the Northwest has selected its Managed Print Services (MPS) program. Under the terms of the multi-million dollar, five-year agreement, CynergisTek will evaluate the organization’s current print program and provide the healthcare system with a customized strategy to optimize its print environment, reduce costs, and enhance overall security while also alleviating constraints on internal resources.
The health system turned to CynergisTek as it needed to partner with an expert that could optimize and secure its print environment after implementing a new electronic health record (EHR) system. CynergisTek will help the organization systematically transform its fleet of print devices to meet its future print and security needs, as well as provide on-site service management.
“This forward-thinking health system realized that it was time to redesign their print ecosystem, especially after implementing a new EHR,” said Sean Hughes, Executive Vice President of Managed Print Services of CynergisTek. “Despite the prevalence of EHRs and other electronic health information systems, the industry saw an increase in the number of print devices (including copiers, printers, fax machines, etc.) utilized by provider organizations last year. Right-sizing their fleet by aligning the number of devices will both reduce costs and decrease the threat landscape.”
CynergisTek’s MPS program provides a partner that is manufacturer-neutral and addresses all devices to include thermal printers and facsimiles. This approach allows for the most comprehensive and best pricing, customer service, and technology, and is designed to be easily customized to address the complex environment that exists in healthcare. This solution also incorporates several security components as well as CynergisTek’s award-winning cybersecurity advisory services.
“Healthcare has the mandate to be more cost-efficient, and security solutions need to be more than just about cost avoidance,” said Mac McMillan, CEO of CynergisTek. “Solutions should also save dollars. As we both prepare to tackle this head on, we are realizing the increased demand for our integrated information management services. This holistic approach to understand print and digital assets in order to make improvements that will drive operational efficiencies and better address another endpoint security issue does just that. It combines cost savings with cost avoidance.”
