Top Benefits of Managed IT in Medical Offices
As medical offices continue to adopt new technologies and digital platforms, and with the rise of ransomware attacks, the need for reliable and secure IT support has become increasingly important. With so much sensitive information at stake, medical practices must prioritize their IT needs to ensure they remain compliant, protected, and efficient.
Here, our IT experts talk about the top benefits of managed IT support for medical offices.
Benefit #1: Stay HIPAA Compliant
This is the main thing our healthcare clients mention. Managed IT services can help ensure that your medical office is fully compliant with HIPAA regulations.
A few examples of how IT Resources keep your practice HIPAA compliant:
- We can conduct security assessments
- We’ll implement security protocols and policies
- We can provide regular online security training to employees
This proactive approach to security will also minimize the risk of data breaches and keep your medical practice in compliance with HIPAA.
Benefit #2: Stay Ahead of Any Data Breaches or Cyber Criminals
Sadly, medical offices are prime targets for cybercriminals due to the high value of the data they store. These (increasingly common) data breaches can lead to significant financial losses and damage to your practice's reputation.
Experience Managed IT services can help protect your practice from these risks by providing comprehensive cybersecurity solutions.
“Our practice made the switch to IT Resources when our current needs were not being met with another company. It has been one of the best decisions we have made for the business. Matt has been very responsive to any issues that have come up - during a power surge, he was at the office within 15 minutes. We have been so impressed with this company and highly recommend them to any medical practices.” - Bayshore Podiatry
Benefit #3: Keep Your Practice Competitive
In today's digital age, patients expect medical practices to offer the latest technologies and digital platforms. Electronic health records (EHR) can better manage patient data, reduce administrative workloads, and improve care coordination, resulting in increased patient satisfaction.
By partnering with a reliable managed IT services provider, medical practices can implement the latest technologies to engage patients. All while knowing that these digital platforms will not sacrifice security or compliance.
Benefit #4: Better Patient Satisfaction
Patients expect to be able to get alerts to upcoming appointments, the ability to schedule and fill out forms beforehand, and get access to their records easily.
There are many ways managed IT services can improve patient satisfaction. Including:
- Streamlining communication and collaboration between healthcare providers
- The convenience of scheduling appointments online at any time
- Access to information remotely outside of business hours
- Protecting your communication methods to prevent private data leaks
- Recommend trusted professionals to keep your website up and user-friendly
Benefit #5: Lower Costs of Operating Your Medical Practice
Outside of the peace of mind we provide, managed IT services save medical practices money. That’s right, our predictable pricing and scalable solutions help you find the right size solution for your practice.
Outsourcing your office IT needs avoids the costs of in-house staffing, and the requirement of equipment and office space, and also provides your office with 24/7 IT support.
