Managed Service IT Provider
In January, OPNS searched for a new Managed Service IT provider who could handle an overhaul of our network. A goal was to allow OPNS to be less vendor-dependent and use resources efficiently, in line with our core values. We were also seeking long-term support and security oversight to be responsible stewards of our physician members’ data.
We selected Safety Net, just down Orchard Lake Road in Farmington Hills. The people at Safety Net specialize in safe networks that meet strong regulatory compliance requirements. They have worked with multiple EHR software systems and know how to navigate support and updates for eClinicalWorks and NextGen. Safety Net is HIPAA-compliant - in fact, one of their company core values is "Security is paramount." They can work alongside practice managers to complete required security assessments. Since the leading cause of current cyber security breaches is human error (employees trusting what they see in an email - which can be very convincing), Safety Net has included free, in managed services, Security Awareness training for all employees of their client practices at least annually and can also offer phishing practice to help all network users stay on top of spotting these threats.
Safety Net has made OPNS' systems more reliable and lowered the cost and complexity of managing them. During this transition, Safety Net has also provided timely response, accessibility and extraordinary customer service in order to meet OPNS needs.
