IT Support Specifically Tuned to Health Care Providers
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 TECHLINQ are meeting HIPAA compliance standards, and opportunities are rapidly expanding.
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) which ensures that more will be done to incorporate IT into the health care field by requiring health service providers to meet US Government-mandated checkpoints.
Your practice’s conversion to Electronic Health/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 EHR/EMR requires a maintained network infrastructure, proper security, and an adequate backup solution. We can help you establish HIPAA and HITECH-compliant solutions while maintaining your technology to keep it running smoothly so you can focus on your patients.
