Wednesday, April 6, 2022
SPOKANE, Washington/SILVER SPRING, Maryland–Medcurity, a leading cybersecurity risk management platform for healthcare organizations, and BlueNovo, a leading provider of strategy, managed technology, health information technology, and cybersecurity services for federally qualified health centers, announced a strategic partnership today. The two companies are collaborating to bring clarity and practical guidance and support for security and compliance at Community Health Centers (CHCs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs), and affiliated community-based organizations.
Medcurity and BlueNovo will jointly offer a comprehensive and actionable security risk analysis, leveraging Medcurity’s intuitive and powerful platform and BlueNovo’s technical and cyber-expertise. Together, they will provide CHCs with industry-leading software and the resources to mitigate risks, protect critical data assets and ensure compliance.
With the sharp rise in cyber-attacks in the healthcare space, security risk awareness and proactive risk mitigation are more critical than ever before. This partnership will directly benefit CHCs, protecting them from these threats and giving them the peace of mind required to provide the highest quality care possible to their underserved communities.
“We are always looking for ways to better serve our community health centers given the limited resources available to them. This is especially important in today’s volatile cybersecurity climate” says Roopak Manchanda, CEO, BlueNovo. “A HIPAA Risk Assessment (SRA) is the foundation for practice compliance and risk mitigation. Medcurity’s platform is intuitive, making the entire process much easier to manage for us and our customers. This is exactly the type of innovation we want to jointly bring to CHCs.”
“This is a critical time to help all healthcare organizations meaningfully measure and reduce their security risk,” says Joe Gellatly, CEO of Medcurity. “BlueNovo has a proven record in providing highly valuable IT and advisory services to community health centers. With the powerful and intuitive Medcurity platform, we will work together to support and protect our essential safety net providers.”
