Healthcare IT: Support and Best Practices

Reduce costs, increase the quality of the care provided, and improve the lives of
patients with managed IT services.

IT Support Specifically Tuned to Healthcare Providers Incorporating proactive managed services presents an opportunity for a move toward secure, streamlined healthcare.
Healthcare IT can best be explained as technology that allows the secure exchange of medical and patient information between healthcare 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 healthcare information. This law initially stunted the healthcare industry’s ability to move into the digital age, but IT firms like Pacific NorthWest Managed IT Services are meeting HIPAA compliance standards, and opportunities are rapidly expanding.

The Future of Healthcare
Health maintenance practices have been mandated by the U.S. Government to reform the way they use information technology.

Part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 includes a section called the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). This ensures that more will be done to incorporate IT into the healthcare field by requiring health service providers to meet U.S. Government-mandated checkpoints with regard to that organization’s implementation of applicable technologies.

Pacific NorthWest Managed IT Services can provide all the relevant information that your organization needs to begin learning the best practices for utilizing IT to cut costs, reduce downtime, and offer the most efficient care possible.

Infrastructure Solutions
Your practice’s conversion to electronic health and medical records requires secure data storage capabilities.

In the very near future, all medical records will be stored digitally. Moving from an archaic file folder system to an electronic system requires a maintained network infrastructure, security, and backup solutions. We can help you establish HIPAA and HITECH-compliant solutions while maintaining your technology to keep it running smoothly; all so you can focus on your patients and the care you provide for them.

Pacific NorthWest Managed IT Services is here to guide your practice through the process of integrating IT resources to seamlessly meet the challenges that your practice faces.

Health Information is Serious Business
The medical field generates and retains a lot of data—the majority of which being sensitive for some reason or another. Whether it’s payment information or health data, it is important that someone who entrusts their privacy to you can do so confidently and safely. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed in 1996 to help regulate how a patient’s health information can be used and disclosed.

While HIPAA’s requirements initially made it a challenge for healthcare providers to properly embrace modern productivity solutions and tools, our HIPAA Compliance as a Service takes the challenge off of the provider’s shoulders and allows more attention to be paid to patient care.
