Crothall Healthcare and Asimily Form Strategic Partnership to Provide World-Class Health Technology Management Services with a Complete End-to-End Cybersecurity, Connected Medical Device Risk and Lifecycle Management Services Portfolio
MOORESVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Crothall Healthcare Technology Solutions (HTS) and Asimily, a leader in connected medical device inventory, cyber-security and operational management, are pleased to announce a strategic partnership. Crothall HTS is an ISO 13485:2016 certified industry leader in the field of Clinical Engineering and medical device life-cycle management.
“For many healthcare systems, the rapid adoption of connected medical device technology expands the potential cyber-attack surface, and creates a significant cybersecurity gap, therefore making it difficult to scale device security,” said Shankar Somasundaram, Asimily’s founder and chief executive officer. “All of our clients will now have access to a world-class service portfolio that provides for the management and oversight of a hospital’s entire life-cycle of connected medical devices and clinical technologies. This management and oversight include safety, cybersecurity, asset and risk management, technical support and financial stewardship.”
With the strategic partnership in place, Crothall and their clients will have laser sharp visibility into the client’s connected medical device profiles. Asimily’s state-of-the-art machine learning will then assess risk, prioritize actions and allow for the development of mitigation strategies to reduce security vulnerabilities.
“Our partnership will enhance Crothall’s medical device security offering with Asimily’s technical expertise in medical device security while Asimily will have the opportunity to access Crothall’s on-site expertise for identified vulnerabilities and risk mitigation,” said Jim Cheek, president of Crothall HTS.
This offering will allow Crothall and their clients to manage a full spectrum of capabilities: asset utilization; FDA recall notification; device vendor tracking; and user defined policy alerts in the environment. The partnership enhances the abilities of Crothall and its clients to manage devices from initial capital planning to end-of-life.
