Absolute Software at HIMSS13

By: Absolute Team | 3/4/2013


Absolute Software will be onsite at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference and Exhibition (HIMSS13) to showcase our product portfolio: Absolute Computrace, Absolute Manage, Absolute Service and Absolute Secure Drive.

HIMSS13 is being held March 3-7, 2013 in New Orleans with feature speakers Bill Clinton and Eric J. Topol. HIMSS13 will be exploring themes of mobile health, meaningful use, ICD-10 and health reform.

Absolute Software will be on hand at booth 3369 to demo our suite of products, which provide healthcare organizations with the ability to manage and secure their IT endpoints and the data they contain.

Absolute Software allows Healthcare organizations to respond if a device is missing or stolen, if data is breached or compromised, or if the status of a device is unknown - safeguarding patient information and allowing organizations to prove data security in support of compliance with regulations such as HITECH/HIPAA. In early 2013, Absolute Software announced a multi-million dollar deal with a Fortune 100 Healthcare organization. The Healthcare organization selected Computrace as an essential component of its governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) infrastructure for its entire population of desktops and laptops.

Absolute Software Customer Highlights:

  • HealthSpring is one of the largest U.S. coordinated care plans with a growing mobile workforce. With Absolute, HealthSpring is able to remotely delete selected files from devices that are at risk, keeping them out of the hands of unauthorized users. They are also able to produce an audit log of the deleted files to prove compliance with corporate and healthcare-specific privacy regulations.
  • Allina Hospitals & Clinics is an 11-hospital, 23,000-employee provider of healthcare services. Having experienced a sharp increase in laptop theft including one incident requiring public disclosure of breached health information, Allina sought a high-tech solution for laptop management and data breach protection. With Absolute, they can see where every laptop is, who is logging in, and what software is installed, plus IT can verify that their endpoint encryption is properly installed and working. Overall, IT asset auditing has improved from 30% to 95% on computers.
  • The La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology (LIAI) is a non-profit research institution. The LIAI IT department needed a comprehensive, cross-platform, cost-effective asset management solution to manage their diverse and ever-growing computer population of Macs and PCs. They chose Absolute to provide all of the tools needed to manage their diverse deployment, freeing up IT time and increasing the efficiency of their current IT resources.
