OhioHealth and Clearwater Compliance Announce Three-Year Cyber Risk Services Partnership

Clearwater
Compliance, LLC, a top-ranked healthcare cyber risk management
solutions company, today announced that it has entered into a new
three-year agreement to provide its Cyber
Risk Services™ (CRS) to OhioHealth,
a nationally recognized, not-for-profit, charitable, healthcare outreach
of the United Methodist Church. OhioHealth has been successfully using
Clearwater’s IRM|Pro™
cyber risk management software and professional services since 2016,
leading to its decision to expand the partnership.

OhioHealth is a family of 29,000 associates, physicians and volunteers,
and a network of 10 hospitals, 200+ ambulatory sites, hospice, home
health, medical equipment and other health services spanning 47 Ohio
counties whose vision is to be the place where patients want to go when
they need healthcare services.

Clearwater Cyber Risk Services™ is a full-service cyber risk management
program that materially enhances healthcare providers’ capabilities and
resources in safeguarding its critical information systems and protected
health information. Leveraging Clearwater’s IRM|Pro™ platform,
Clearwater CRS enables organizations to strategically, efficiently, and
quickly assess, respond to, and monitor cybersecurity risks. Through
Clearwater’s proven methodology, healthcare providers of any size can
achieve compliance, safeguard patient information, reduce risk to
patient safety, and ultimately gain a competitive advantage.

“We are honored to earn OhioHealth’s trust and confidence,” said Barry
Mathis, Clearwater’s Chief Business Development Officer. “As cyber
threats continue to increase in both frequency and complexity,
healthcare organizations are transitioning from manual solutions to our
IRM|Pro™ platform and Cyber Risk Services. OhioHealth is a progressive
hospital system that realizes that patients today are concerned with
breaches in healthcare, and that they have a choice in service.
OhioHealth is demonstrating its commitment to its patients by maturing
its cyber risk program through Clearwater’s Cyber Risk Services.”

Clearwater enables healthcare providers to achieve compliance and
implement a NIST-based cyber risk management program through its unique
SaaS-based enterprise cyber risk management system (eCRMS), IRM|Pro™
software and expert professional services. Clearwater’s solutions are
