“It is imperative that cybersecurity leaders continue to focus on and execute the fundamentals of patient privacy and data protection as many hospital C-Suites are still diverted by other IT initiatives in 2019 like EHR optimization, analytics and revenue cycle management transformation,” said Doug Brown, founder of Black Book and lead researcher on the Q3 2019 study.

Black Book anticipates demand for outsourced information security, consulting and support to increase faster than security technology products and software purchases as security job vacancies exceed qualified candidates and weak security training programs keep the majority of healthcare provider organizations vulnerable.

Black Book Market Research LLC measures customer satisfaction across eighteen copyrighted key performance indicators: Strategic Alignment of Vendor Offerings to the Client’s Mission and Goals; Innovation and Optimization; Training and Education; Client Relationships and Cultural Fit; Trust, Accountability, Ethics and Transparency; Breadth of Offerings; Deployment and Implementation; Customization; Integration and Interfaces, Interoperability and Connectivity; Scalability and Client Adaptability, Vendor Staff Expertise and Performance; Reliability; Brand Image and Marketing Communications; Marginal Value Adds; Vendor Financial Viability and Managerial Stability; Data Storage Services; Support and Customer Care; and Best of Breed Technology and Process Improvement.

“As investments in comprehensive, enterprise-wide solutions increase, it is critical that IT leaders validate to the entire management team that cybersecurity expenditures transcend basic data protection to truly shielding patient safety and ensuring financial strength,” said Brown.

In total, 2,876 cybersecurity system users and senior-level managers participated over the nine-month crowdsourced survey.

In order of overall client satisfaction, usability and experience, the top-ranked end-to-end and enterprise-wide cybersecurity firms this year are:
