Webinar Sept 22: How to Ensure Business Continuity with a Remote Workforce

2020 has been an extremely challenging year for businesses. They have had to rapidly adapt to a new way of working due to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. In order to keep businesses running, it has been necessary to switch from a largely office-based workforce to allowing employees to work remotely from home.

Employees have managed to stay productive and continue to communicate and collaborate through videoconferencing solutions such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom, instant messaging platforms, and email. These tools have helped businesses to continue to function and move forward during these difficult times.

One area of concern for businesses with remote working is how to ensure compliance and maintain business and email continuity.

On September 22, 2020, TitanHQ will host a webinar to discuss some of the remote working challenges faced by businesses. During the webinar, TitanHQ’s experts will discuss the current technology landscape, explain how to ensure security and compliance with remote workers, how to protect business critical data, and the importance of continuity with remote working.

TitanHQ will also introduce ArcTitan – a cloud-based email archiving solution solves some of the key issues with remote working and helps to ensure business continuity.

SURVEY: Have Emergency Preparedness Plans Changed Due to COVID-19?

Earlier this year, HIPAA Journal sent out a survey on emergency preparedness in healthcare. Many healthcare leaders such as yourself participated in the survey, which determined 69% of healthcare employees viewed severe weather as their top safety concern.

Since then, COVID-19 has drastically impacted the healthcare industry and changed the way hospitals and other medical facilities operate. Views on safety and emergency preparedness have shifted over the past few months, so the survey is being conducted again to explore how opinions have changed in the wake of COVID-19.

As before, the survey is being conducted by Rave Mobile Security, who would like to extend their thanks in advance for your participation.

WEBINAR TODAY: How a Top ACO Drives Better Outcomes with Communication

Accountable care organizations (ACOs) have to overcome many communication challenges to improve collaboration, efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver better quality care. Those challenges have been made even more difficult during the COVID-19 crisis.

One of the ways communication and collaboration can be improved is through the adoption of a healthcare communication and collaboration (CC&C) solution, as was discovered by Scottsdale, AZ-based Innovation Care Partners (ICP).

ICP is a physician-led clinical integration network and ACO that provides value-based patient care through more than 800 practices and 5 local hospitals.  ICP works with almost 2,000 distributed physicians and serves over 150,000 patients and strives to provide clinical quality, greater efficiency, improved collaboration, better access to care, and long-term cost-control.

On June 24, 2020, ICP and TigerConnect will be hosting a webinar in which ICP will explain how it has been possible to streamline workflows and establish best practices for care coordination, clinical team engagement, patient satisfaction, and COVID-19 provider and patient communications using the TigerConnect clinical communication and collaboration platform.

Join the webinar to discover how ICP has maximized value and improved patient care through effective communication across its entire network.

Telehealth Set to Stay so it’s Time to Get the Right Technology

This year, in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the HHS’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) expanded coverage of telehealth service to include all Medicare beneficiaries, regardless of location.

Telehealth services eliminate the barriers to in-person care that have been created by the COVID-19 pandemic and allow practitioners to provide treatment to patients in their own homes and, by doing so, improve patient safety and control the spread of COVID-19. The expansion of coverage only applies during the coronavirus public health emergency, although calls have been increasing for the expanded CMS telehealth policies to continue after the public health emergency is declared over.

On June 9, 2020, in a virtual event on STAT News, CMS Administrator Seema Verma said she supported the permanent expansion of access to telehealth services. The FTC has also weighed, with executives expressing their support for the permanent removal of the geographical restrictions and continued expansion of the types of services that can be delivered by telehealth.

On May 21, 32 House members signed a letter urging Congress to give telehealth more time to prove itself and requested the relaxation of telehealth regulations to continue after the COVID-19 emergency period. The extension will ensure that sufficient data is collected to determine which of the new flexibilities should be made permanent.

Many providers and patients across the United States have taken advantage of telehealth services during the public health emergency and telehealth has proven popular with providers and patients alike. It is now looking likely that telehealth is here to stay, and virtual visits will replace in-person care in certain circumstances.

Telehealth was made much easier for providers by the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights, which issued a notice of enforcement discretion stating penalties and sanctions would not be imposed on healthcare providers for the good faith use of non-HIPAA-compliant communication technologies for providing telehealth services. That notice of enforcement discretion only applies during the public health emergency, after which healthcare providers will be required to switch to HIPAA-compliant solutions. Any provider that is not yet using a HIPAA-compliant telehealth application should now consider making the switch.

One HIPAA-compliant solution that has proven extremely popular during the pandemic is TigerTouch from TigerConnect.  TigerTouch combines, video, voice, and text messaging into one convenient mobile and desktop app which allows internal communication with care team members and patient communication through the same app. The solution also supports the sharing of files and medical images, and as a fully HIPAA-compliant solution, it allows ePHI to be securely shared. Healthcare providers that have adopted the solution report significant cost savings, improved workflow efficiency, better patient care, and happier staff and patients.

TigerConnect hosted a webinar to showcase the solution and explain how the integrations and telehealth features of the solution are helping to improve the quality of care, increase patient safety, and improve patient satisfaction levels.

The webinar is available on-demand on this link.

Webinar 05/21/20: How to Double Protection for Remote Workers

Are you concerned about your remote employees accessing malicious websites, being fooled by phishing scams, or downloading malware?

On Thursday May 21, 2020, the Ireland-based cybersecurity company TitanHQ is hosting a webinar to explain how you can better protect your remote workers and significantly improve your defenses against phishing and malware attacks.

Most cyberattacks that target employees have an email and web-based component. Email security solutions are effective at blocking the majority of malicious emails, but some emails may end up being delivered to inboxes.

Links in the emails direct employees to websites were credentials are harvested or malware is downloaded. Implementing a web filtering solution provides protection from the web-based part of the attack and prevents employees from visiting malicious websites. A web filter adds an important extra layer of security against phishing attacks and malware and ransomware downloads.

During the webinar, TitanHQ will explain how COVID-19 is being exploited by cybercriminals to attack organizations and steps that can be taken to meet the challenge of protecting a largely distributed workforce.

The webinar will focus on TitanHQ’s DNS-based web filtering solution – WebTitan – and will explain the features and security layers of the solution that will help you manage user security at multiple locations.
