Deliver better quality healthcare with optimized electronic health records
Modern-day healthcare has evolved away from antiquated paper-based data storage towards electronic health records. There is no better time than the present to reap the benefits of a digitized health data storage system – streamlined prescribing, better care delivered through pattern recognition, updated information and practices, and more. Consequently, electronic health records can help businesses facilitate optimized healthcare delivery to patients while improving staff productivity.

Avoid hefty legal fines with a seasoned technology partner
Get peace of mind from working with a HIPAA-verified technology partner capable of protecting ePHI. You can protect your organization from the legal ramifications of breaches such as the recent, eye-watering, $3.5m fine handed down to Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA) for failure to implement adequate cybersecurity safeguards against intrusion interference and theft.
Healthcare organizations may be liable for data breaches, including those caused by inexperienced IT managed service providers. Some legal requirements that healthcare organizations need to comply with to avoid such fines include:
- Data loss prevention measures (e.g. duplicating and managing multiple copies of electronic health records)
- Cybersecurity awareness and training programs for staff
- Comprehensive assessments of cyber threats to ePHI – both off-site and on-premise.
