Five Year Agreement with Northeast Health System to Include Toner and Break/Fix
MISSION VIEJO, CA – December 28, 2016 – CynergisTek, Inc. (OTCQB:AUXO), a leading provider of complete Document solutions and IT security for the healthcare industry, today announced that it has signed a five-year contract with MaineHealth, a prominent 1,100 bed health system employing more than 11,000 employees. MaineHealth is the Company’s first Print as a Service (PRaaS) customer. PRaaS is CynergisTek’s new offering providing hospitals a scalable and customizable service to address all or some aspects of the document continuum.
“Even with the implementation of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) technology, healthcare continues to experience highly fragmented and unmanaged print environments. Due to the demand from our customers asking us to perform a root cause analysis, we are evolving from traditional managed print services (MPS) to offering a menu of comprehensive services helping hospitals solve security vulnerabilities, document workflow issues and printing flexibility,” says Simon Vermooten, CynergisTek’s EVP of Document Solutions.
CynergisTek’s PRaaS offering provides hospitals the ability to choose the level of service needed. The flexible PRaaS plans range from toner management and break/fix to a next generation solution of analyzing document workflow and security to optimize and manage the full document life cycle.
CynergisTek will provide proactive toner management and break/fix for MaineHealth, including 10 hospitals and seven clinics across the state of Maine. Maine Medical Center, a 664-bed hospital within the larger system, will be the first to implement PRaaS, with the remaining hospitals and clinics rolling out PRaaS over the next 18 months.
“We are honored to expand our presence in the Northeast with one of the top health systems in the country. This win is a testament to our relationships in the region and our brand’s strength in healthcare,” says Joseph J. Flynn, CynergisTek CEO and President.
CynergisTek offers the only vendor neutral approach to meeting the goals and objectives of hospitals in removing waste and improving operational efficiency. Its healthcare focused PRaaS plans reduce costs and improve patient experience. The services can be used on their own or bundled with an existing MPS program at any time.
