Does your medical office still operate on paper? That’s a problem. Your private practice demands expert IT to keep your patient data secure and your office HIPAA-compliant. Small to midsize medical practices benefit from engaging an MSP for managed IT services. Here’s how.
Stay HIPAA Compliant
The easiest way for a doctor’s office to lose its license is to fall out of compliance with HIPAA standards. HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, is a series of interlocking rules regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Secure technology is the most effective way to keep your patients’ protected health information (PHI) medical practice within regulatory standards. If your office still operates on an old patient system, it’s highly susceptible to data breaches and network failures. These threats put your office at risk of non-compliance.
More Proactive Patient Care
Your practice can have the latest technology. Online tools, apps, and digital interfaces to interact with patients make delivering care easier. However, these tools require a server. When you partner with a managed IT service provider, you have an entire team of dedicated IT specialists at your fingertips to manage and implement new technologies.
Also, patients today are accustomed to technologies that offer convenience. Your clients expect a higher level of care and the technology to support it. Managed IT providers have the capacity to research and implement the latest technologies for your practice.
Smoother Processes & Simplified Billing
The primary purpose of new technologies is to lessen the workload on your office staff. An effective MSP partner helps streamline your practices and processes. Managed IT providers like Integrated Technology build a working relationship with your organization, helping identify issues and inefficiencies in your office. We then customize a flexible solution to meet your needs.
As more people shift to online billing, your practice must keep up. Adding a digital payment platform facilitates online payments for patients. This alleviates stress for them, and it also gets your office paid faster. Engaging an MSP, you get the power and expertise to implement a better billing system. You can rest assured that a reliable MSP will protect your patients’ personal, medical, and payment information.
