ChiroTouch’S CTAcademy to Host “Ransomware. Are You a Target? What You Need to Know to Protect Your Patients and Your Practice” Webinar with Themos Pentakalos

San Diego, CA—July 25th, 2016—ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, is pleased to announce the upcoming webinar “Ransomware. Are You a Target? What You Need to Know to Protect Your Patients and Your Practice” with Themos Pentakalos.  This webinar is scheduled to air live for one hour on Tuesday, July 26th, 2016, at 10:00am PST.

“Statistics show that ransomware is on the rise globally and hackers are developing programs that are more sophisticated, which means the emails containing the malicious software look much more legitimate,” said Robert Moberg, CEO of ChiroTouch.  “We’re fortunate to have Mr. Pentakolos lead this webinar and share his insight on what preventative measures chiropractors can take to keep them from becoming the next ransomware victim.”

Recently, there have been a number of reports of chiropractors being held hostage by ransomware.  Ransomware is malicious software that hackers use to prevent access to critical data, and then demand ransom to regain access to it.

Join Themos Pentakolos, Chief Operating Officer for ChiroTouch, as he discusses:

*  What the major security threats to chiropractors are

*  Why healthcare providers like chiropractors make perfect targets for ransomware attacks

*  How to devise a plan for chiropractors to protect their practices and patient data from ransomware and other security threats

“It will never happen to me” is not a plan, nor is it realistic.  The only defense is to get informed and take all reasonable measures to protect against these attacks.

ChiroTouch offers two ONC certified EHR chiropractic software systems, one cloud-based and one on premise.  Both systems are designed from the ground up to maximize efficiencies for virtually every process, including patient self check-in, scheduling, SOAP notes, billing, interoffice communication, and more. ChiroTouch has developed its HIPAA-compliant systems to drastically reduce the time it takes to perform tasks that chiropractors are already doing, thus giving chiropractors more time to see more patients—resulting in increased referrals, improved efficiencies, and a direct, measurable impact on practice profitability.

Other recent webinar topics include “ICD-10: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint,” “The Secret Recipe to Grow Your Practice,” and “Keeping More of What You Make.”  The ChiroTouch webinar programs and the attendees have benefited from speakers such as Dr. David Jackson, Garrett Gunderson, Dr. Patrick Gentempo, Dr. Bob Hoffman, Dr. David Fletcher, and many more.  This cross-section of the most influential and recognized coaches and speakers has made for a very robust and popular series of webinars.
