The digital divide: How the Good Samaritan Society fought cyberattacks and won
There is a global danger that hides in the shadows and is changing the way continuing care operators care for residents. Today, to provide that same historical level of resident care, a group of techno-soldiers are not just a nice-to-have, but are a must, to protect our critical information technology infrastructure. This is the story of the Good Samaritan Society/Canada (Good Samaritan) digital transformation journey. Our digital roadmap sets Good Samaritan up to rise above the ongoing barrage of cyberattacks and loss of insurance. This is a digital divide story of David vs. Goliath.
Please join Terry Carlson and Steve Kovacic as they ground their discussion in a real life example, and talk about how continuous cyberattacks can be circumvented. Steve Kovacic is the Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for the Good Samaritan Society & Good Samaritan Canada, and Terry Carlson is the Director of IMTP and Telecare for the Good Samaritan Society. They will also touch on the rising insurance expectations for continuing care operators to continuously enhance their information technology safety controls against evolving cyberterrorism, and offer practical solutions for health leaders in their own environments. This webinar is moderated by Don Juzwishin, PhD, FCCHL, the Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare Management Forum, who was previously the Director of Health Technology Assessment and Innovation at Alberta Health Services.
