Involta Delivers Mission-Critical Connectivity and Security Solutions to Achieve Better Outcomes for Patients

In recent years, the healthcare industry has experienced unmatched progress. From the emergence of telemedicine to the development of wearable IoT devices to 3D bioprinting, innovation is at the core of advancing patient care. With a vast number of cutting-edge technologies introduced so rapidly, one thing is certain: IT is the heartbeat of healthcare. Healthcare organizations must continue to establish and maintain reliable, robust cybersecurity strategies and IT infrastructure to effectively support the most advanced innovations of today and stay ahead of the future.

For almost two decades, Involta has been at the center of healthcare technology and understands the IT challenges of leading organizations. We have our finger on the pulse of the industry, and we are dedicated to providing innovative healthcare cybersecurity solutions, IT infrastructure and data center services to support precision medicine, PACs/imaging, data analytics, telemedicine, electronic health records applications and much more.

Let’s get to the heart of the challenges today’s healthcare organizations face and how Involta’s solutions inject a vital boost of reliability, innovation and efficiency to enable further growth and success. Together, we can achieve better outcomes for your patients and organization.

 

Cyber Attacks Impact Patient Safety
In today’s digital age, cybersecurity has become a critical aspect for all healthcare organizations, with the number of data breaches in the healthcare industry increasing every year. According to The HIPAA Journal, new records were set in 2023 for the highest number of reported data breaches and the highest number of breached patient records. In the previous year, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) received reports of 725 data breaches, and these breaches exposed or disclosed over 133 million records in total.

Malicious actors are leveraging increasingly sophisticated tactics to infiltrate networks with the intent to disrupt operations. In addition to significant financial losses, the consequences of data breaches and other cyber attacks can be dire, posing a threat to patient safety. Incidents that prevent access to patient records, such as ransomware attacks, supply chain compromises and cloud infrastructure breaches, can cause harmful delays in medical procedures, longer waits for test results and even an increase in mortality rates.

 

Involta’s Prescription for Success
