The use of information technology in the healthcare industry, like many other industries, has skyrocketed in recent years. So much so that it led to the coining of the term Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). If it wasn’t becoming increasingly important, it wouldn’t get its own acronym, right? That’s just like…science. 

But the proof is in the numbers: according to Deloitte, the IoMT market reached $41.2 billion in 2017, and is expected to rise to a whopping $158.1 billion in 2022.

With the rise of technology being used in healthcare, comes the increased demand for IT professionals to assist with it. 

Atera—the ultimate platform for internal IT departments for Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM), offers IT professionals improved operational efficiency, seamless integration, end-to-end management, and disruptive pricing. 

But wait—don’t just take our word for it! We’ll let our dear client Joe Forman, Nationwide Healthcare Services’ Director of Information Technology, explain why Atera was the best choice for them.

“The problem”

Nationwide Healthcare Services, LLC. is a rapidly expanding Healthcare Management Company of Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers around the Northeast U.S.

As a growing healthcare provider with multiple campuses, Nationwide Health Care Services wanted a hassle-free RMM solution that offered robust configuration, easy deployment, and efficient management.

“We needed a solution that was easy to deploy and offered top notch protection for our endpoints,” explains Foreman. “We also needed an RMM solution that offered simplicity and ease of management.”

The “solution”

For a small yet mighty IT department responsible for almost 400 endpoints across several healthcare campuses, Foreman needed a partner that could deliver a robust solution that was easy to use and easy to manage.

“Atera checked all the boxes for us,” says Foreman. “It was easy to deploy and came out-of-the-box with robust configurations that made it easy for me to get Nationwide Healthcare Services up and running. As a small team, we needed that.”

As Foreman and his team started using Atera five years ago, they also brought in Webroot to secure their endpoints

Webroot’s integration with Atera meant fewer panes of glass for us in managing our endpoints. Almost immediately we saw far less malware getting through to our endpoints compared to our previous endpoint provider,” says Foreman.

Basically, Atera is the perfect blend between an RMM and an antivirus integration solution. 

The “benefits”

With pre-configured administrative and maintenance tasks that can be applied to servers and workstations, adding Atera meant that the team at Nationwide Healthcare Services was able to focus on important assignments.

“Atera’s technology makes our work easier,” says Joe.

Nationwide Healthcare Services also required that their partner be aligned with Webroot for advanced security protection. With Webroot, Atera ensures that security is always up-to-date to maintain a zero-day attack policy.

The “incredible results”

Since making the switch to Atera and Webroot five years ago, Nationwide Healthcare Services has been able to manage endpoints and configure policies in a more efficient manner, which has changed the way the team works.

“We’ve been very happy with our partnerships with Atera and Webroot,” says Joe. “The technology can’t be beaten and we’ve been impressed with the level of support we receive from them.”

At Atera, we offer Live Chat 24 hours/day on weekdays, and [email protected] is available 24/7!
