Two New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) cohort participants, Mana Health and powersolution.com, met during CEO roundtable sessions in 2016, as part NJII’s Health IT Connections program. Mana Health, headquartered in New York City, streamlines data access and interoperability in healthcare through its innovative ManaCloud platform. Powersolution.com, an information technology managed services provider, works with client organizations to maximize return on investment and minimize risks when implementing new technology solutions. The fit between the two firms became apparent after a careful evaluation by Mana Health, resulting in the selection of powersolution.com by Mana Health to support its IT environment.
The powersolution.com support services, which have been implemented over the past several months, include ongoing monitoring and management of a highly secure, reliable and HIPAA-compliant infrastructure through managed firewalls, malicious software prevention, anti-virus protection and desktop, laptop and mobile device encryption.
According to David Dadian, CEO of powersolution.com, “Our long-standing relationship with NJIT/NJII began with the recruiting of NJIT students through our college internship program, beginning over 10 years ago. Through the CEO roundtable and other NJII Health IT Connections events, we became aware of Mana Health’s award-winning patient portal and were impressed with the company’s passion for impacting the cost and quality of healthcare.”
David Ruchman, CTO of powersolution.com and a Computer Science alum from NJIT added, “With Mana Health’s particular focus on security and HIPAA compliance, we were confident that we could provide an enterprise-level solution that would address their stringent requirements.”
Nupura Kolwalkar, CEO of Mana Health, said, “The NJII Health IT Connections program has helped us to develop new industry partners, including powersolution.com, and especially with the acceleration of value-based care. Our ManaCloud platform helps facilitate value-based care by providing interoperability across multiple electronic health records and clinical data sources, along with robust Application Programming Interface and turnkey support.” Chris Bradley, Co-Founder and President of Mana Health, said, “The growth and technology innovation associated with our business mandated identifying a high- quality IT managed services provider that could accommodate our needs. We were pleased to be able to find and engage powersolution.com as a result of our participation in the NJII program.”
