CynergisTek announced it has formed a partnership with Protenus, to help health systems nationwide enhance patient privacy monitoring programs. The partnership will grant health systems access to Protenus’ robust analytics that leverages artificial intelligence to gather data related to potential patient privacy risks, along with CynergisTek’s Patient Privacy Monitoring Service, a managed service offering designed to implement and maintain an effective privacy monitoring analytics program with skilled privacy resources.
According to the Protenus Breach Barometer, insider incidents accounted for 23% of all breaches that occurred at health systems in Q3 2018. This figure will only continue increasing, indicating that now more than ever, health systems need a cost-effective solution to meet the daily challenges of managing patient privacy. To address this need, CynergisTek and Protenus formed a preferred partnership to combine CynergisTek’s industry experience in healthcare consulting and optimization of privacy programs with Prontenus’ strength in healthcare analytics technology to offer health systems both the people, processes, and technology components of a strong patient privacy monitoring program.
