Special Expertise in Medical IT


HIPAA regulations extend beyond paper charts; computers are subject to regulation as well.  DoctorInHospitalC1201 8Even though there are no specific standards in HIPAA for computers, all offices subject to HIPAA regulations are required to implement a responsible level of security that meets industry standards.  This includes secure passwords, proper training for employees, automatic timeouts, physical security of the computers, and encryption.

Doctors, dentists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners are often too busy to take care of keeping up on the newest threats to their computers or network.  Their employees should be specially trained and focused in their profession, not computer security.   Computer security is best left to technology professionals.

Usually, when a medical office chooses to secure their computers, it comes with added benefits: portability, easier charting, improved accountability, straightforward billing, modernization, trouble-free consultations, simple chart backups, improved patient care, increased practice value, improved account aging, easier communication, reduced office supplies, complete records backups, and increased employee activity.
