Incorporating proactive managed IT Services presents an opportunity for a move toward secure, streamlined healthcare.
Medical IT can best be explained as technology that allows the secure exchange of medical and patient information between health care providers, patients, insurers, and other administrative entities.
With the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the U.S. Government established privacy rules that regulate the use and disclosure of a patient’s health care information. This law initially stunted the health care industry’s ability to move into the digital age, but IT firms like Palindrome Consulting are meeting the IT side of HIPAA compliance standards, and opportunities are rapidly expanding.
Technology plays a critical role in comfort and care for today’s patients who have come to rely on different IT services to simplify the overall healthcare experience. Patients have come to expect modern conveniences like WiFi in waiting rooms, online scheduling, access to electronic health records (EHR) for notifications of test results, and even appointment reminders. All this technology increases the need for IT services and support. This is where a partnership with a Managed IT Services provider like Palindrome Consulting helps keep a clinic’s technology running smoothly and ensuring maximum uptime.
Any healthcare practice’s conversion to Electronic Health/Medical Records will require secure data storage capabilities.
Maintained network infrastructure, security, and backup solutions are core elements needed to take advantage of efficiency advantages made available through paperless office solutions and EMR solutions. We can help healthcare clinics to establish HIPAA and HITECH-compliant solutions while maintaining their technology to keep it running smoothly so their staff can focus on their patients.
Palindrome Consulting is here to guide each healthcare practice through the process of utilizing applicable IT resources to meet the challenges that each practice faces seamlessly.
