Coffee Talk with Grant Elliott, CEO of Ostendio

Welcome back to Digital Health Today, the place to be to get the insights of leaders making the healthcare of tomorrow, available today. This is a Coffee Talk.

Coffee Talks are opportunities to hear directly from the sponsors of our program – leaders of businesses and organizations who are passionate about sharing the ideas, insights and innovations that help accelerate change and fuel new ways of working. In fact, if it wasn’t for our sponsors, we simply wouldn’t be able to share the stories and conversations of other leaders, innovators and change-makers that we feature here on the program. So, we’re very grateful for their support, and we want to make sure you hear directly about the great work that our sponsors are doing to help deliver improvements in healthcare. As always, we make sure we dive into the problems that we’re working to address, and, most importantly, how they can be solved effectively.

Today, we’re taking on the issue of cybersecurity. Have you ever wondered how much more secure – or perhaps less secure – your organization is compared to your peers in the industry? This could have a significant impact on your business not simply the operational performance of your organization, but on the commercial opportunities as well. With the risks and threats surrounding healthcare data, the stakes are high to make sure that organizations, and all their partners, vendors and clients, are proactive and compliant with the latest requirements.
