Recently, doctors have had it hard when it comes to technology. The affordable care act or ‘Obamacare’ made changes to the way doctors managed their practices with mandatory EHR (electronically managed records). HIPAA compliance changed the way patient documents need to be stored. All this while doctors are trying to run very busy practices that keep ordinary Americans healthy.
While it may seem that technology is making things harder for practitioners, the right tools can make these difficult tasks easy to implement and also streamline the way medical offices function.
Encryption, data storage, and backup are key to maintain compliance with both the ACA and HIPAA. Attempting to reach compliance without a technology advisor is NOT recommended. The tools required to setup not only the EHR but maintain HIPAA compliance and future changes require both time and continuous attention.
