How many courses of managing technology infrastructure were offered at your medical school?
6 Reasons You Should Consider the
IT Management of Your Medical Practice
1) Data Security - Any business that deals with the private and personal information of the general public has a tremendous responsibility for safeguarding it. There are serious repercussions for failure to protect personal health information.
2) Accessibility - Now patients must be able to access their own medical information. Patient portals are gaining popularity, which, for health care providers, will be another task to manage.
3) Healthcare vs. IT Management - You were trained to be a health care provider, not an IT specialist.
4) Fast Changing Technology and Threats - As a health care provider you are unable to keep track of the new threats and viruses that are constantly emerging, and have the potential to threaten your systems and data security.
5) Downtime and Data Recovery - Systems break. Reservation and scheduling systems can fail. Given the reliance on electronic systems, your office needs to have plans to quickly restore systems, and also ensure effective data back up procedures.
6) Cost of IT Management - In-house support is a considerable drain on payroll. Most likely this is a single full-time employee who cannot be available or on-call 24/7 and who may not be able to keep abreast of all the updates and regulatory changes all on their own.
