NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clearwater Compliance, a leading provider of hospital and health system cybersecurity and compliance solutions, today announced it will be the recommended cybersecurity provider of MHA Ventures’ Endorsed Services Program. Clearwater was awarded the preferred provider status by MHA Ventures, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Montana Hospital Association. The new endorsement will offer education, solutions and services to the hospital members of MHA throughout Montana which includes 48 critical access hospitals, thirteen prospective payment system organizations, nine long-term care facilities, eight home health and hospice agencies, six governmental organizations, and one treatment facility.
“There’s an immediate need to empower healthcare organizations to avert the threat of modern cyberattacks,” said Kelly Casey, Director of Shared Services at MHA Ventures. “Clearwater’s expertise and education will help members improve information security by addressing today’s threat factors proactively and comprehensively within their existing IT systems.”
“Clearwater is honored to help Montana’s healthcare organizations continuously prepare and evolve to meet the cybersecurity threat environment of today,” said Bob Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “MHA Ventures is way ahead by understanding that cybersecurity requires an enterprise strategy set by the organization’s board of directors and executive team. So many hospitals are still stuck in a tactical, technical and spot-welding mode and have adopted a compliance mindset toward information security or a check-list approach.”
Clearwater’s solutions are already exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association and Georgia Hospital and Health Services, and the company is a member of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) National Cybersecurity Excellence Partnership at NIST’s National Cybersecurity of Excellence.
