A pioneering Miami tech company has put a piece of the future in the hands of Florida International University (FIU) students.
Faculty and students in the Master of Science in Informatics and Management Systems (MSHIMS) program in FIU’s College of Business recently welcomed Tom Packert, chief technology officer of CareCloud, a provider of cloud-based practice management and electronic healthcare-related software for medical practices.
Packert came to launch a unique partnership between CareCloud and FIU that will let students in the master’s program access CareCloud Charts, the company’s electronic health record software, as if they were physicians or practice administrators with their own practices. His wide-ranging talk to the HIPAA-compliant class included information on cybersecurity and defusing the threats posed by hackers and cybercriminals.
Alumnus Albert Santalo (EMBA ’97) is CareCloud’s CEO.
