At Innovative, Inc. our team of consultants, technicians, and engineers comprehend and appreciate the challenges facing healthcare practices. We’re pleased to offer solutions and support, ranging from small projects to fully outsourced IT management. Allow us to help sort out the demands of technology while your practice focuses on patient care. The U.S. healthcare system faces unprecedented stringent demands and responsibilities related to technology driven by the combination of healthcare reform and regulation.
Patient Data Security In the age of HIPAA and PCI regulations, it is imperative that privacy and security of electronic health information be ensured as this information is maintained and transmitted electronically. Innovative has extensive background in this area.
Patient Data Security The widespread use of health IT within the health care industry will improve the quality of health care, prevent medical errors, reduce health care costs, decrease paperwork, increase administrative efficiencies and expand access to affordable healthcare.
Integration of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) The system needs to work seamlessly for you so you can do your job effectively but at the same time not compromise patient confidentiality. In the future all medical information such as medical literature will be accessed electronically. Is your system up to the challenge?
Digital X-ray Management The future of radiology is digital. The expectation for integration and compliance is very high, and there is little margin for error or inefficiency. Servers must be properly scaled and reliable.
Remote Access for Doctors/Admin Desktop and mobile computers must be properly integrated and maintained. Doctors and administrators often require Virtual Private Network (VPN) access for on-call and emergency system access, as well as the luxury of working from home or while traveling. Blackberries, iPhones, Palm devices, and Smartphones require expert integration with email and calendaring systems.
