TMLT Announces its Collaboration with Imago Healthcare Systems, LLC

February 13, 2014

Helping medical practices navigate the uncertainties of privacy and security regulations and cyber risks

TMLT and Imago Healthcare Systems, LLC have teamed up to offer specialized Health Information Technology and Risk Management services for healthcare providers on multiple fronts, including comprehensive onsite privacy and security risk assessments, data analysis, and EHR/EMR consulting, support, training, and implementation services.

TMLT is committed to helping medical practices stay in compliance with federal and state medical privacy and security laws, such as the HIPAA Omnibus Rule and the Texas Medical Privacy Act. Providers are becoming increasingly exposed to data breaches—consequently, they are becoming more concerned about their cybersecurity and cyber liability insurance needs.

TMLT and Imago are at the forefront of developing innovative risk management resources to improve providers’ cyber-attack preparedness. TMLT developed a Privacy and Security Toolkit to educate solo-to-large practices about federal and state medical privacy laws, including customized training for staff on policies and procedures. Additionally, TMLT can offer:

  • On-site HIPAA Privacy and Security Risk Assessments
  • HIPAA Compliance Pre-Audit Consulting
  • Post-implementation EHR Consulting

Imago’s security experts can assist with HIPAA Security Risk Assessments for practices with complex IT networks. Their Computing Environment Security Posture Review (CESPR) focuses on identifying potential vulnerabilities in the handling of protected health information (PHI) and in IT infrastructure by using 11 key elements of security best practices to ensure providers are meeting regulatory standards and rules. Imago has the necessary experts on staff, including Certified Information Systems Security Professionals, infrastructure technology specialists, and attorneys specializing in healthcare compliance regulations.

Imago’s services are available to TMLT policyholders at discounted rates and can include:
