ASCs are attractive targets for cybercriminals. Surgery centers collect and store vast amounts of sensitive personal information. This is highly valued as it can be used for identity theft, blackmail and extortion. Learn how you can take your cybersecurity to the next level even on a smaller budget. Our very own Nelson Gomes discussing this topic and more in our most recent white paper.
An information technology veteran with 30-plus years of IT experience, Nelson Gomes serves as Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Manager (New Jersey) for award-winning, healthcare-focused managed services provider Medicus IT (MIT). Nelson brings impressive healthcare industry knowledge and experience to his position at MIT, where he focuses on enhancing client relations, bolstering the company’s healthcare industry visibility, and helping more and larger practices get preventive with their IT rather than triage it. Before his work with the company, he spent more than 20 years building long-term relationships with clients, healthcare organizations and partner vendors as founder and leader of PriorityOne Group (P1). Founded in 1997, P1 was an award-winning Rutherford, N.J.-based provider of integrated managed IT services to healthcare organizations. Key to P1's success was Nelson's and the company's unwavering commitment to core values that guided the company's decision-making. In 2019, P1 merged with MIT.
Medicus not only resolves our ‘acute’ issues, but solves the underlying issues and works to develop processes and solutions that will keep our it operating efficiently each day. They have been quick to respond to our issues, and most of the time triages our issues as we would. We have a complicated system with multiple sites, windows/mac operating systems, dragon, cloud-based software/storage. We are comfortable that Medicus keeps us HIPAA compliant, too.
As a HIPAA & MU compliance servicing organization, we work with a lot of IT companies around the country—our experience with Medicus IT stands out above the rest. Not only is Medicus more up-to-date on the HIPAA regulations than any other it company we have seen, they also help protect their clients through education and technology. In my opinion, you would be hard-pressed to find an IT partner that can provide better service or knowledge than the team at Medicus IT.
From the moment I was told about Chris Jann and contracted the Medicus team, they have been an integral part of starting and maintaining our pediatric office. I am eternally grateful for them and their professionalism. Shout out for the constant guidance needed in this ever-evolving digital world (all-encompassing it too, what type of computer/scanner/phone/email/back up — overwhelming). With governmental regulations, security concerns, and business management for a busy pediatric office, their help has consistently remained invaluable for management of our IT healthcare world. Very grateful.
