Healthcare Information Management
With the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) the U.S. Government established privacy rules that regulate the use and disclosure of a patient's health care information. Then part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 included a section called the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), which ensured that more is done to incorporate IT into the health care field by requiring service providers to meet U.S. Government-mandated checkpoints with regards to that organization's implementation of applicable technologies.
This can be an overwhelming task, but SOTEK Solutions can provide all the relevant information that your organization needs to begin learning the best practices for utilizing IT to cut costs, reduce downtime, offer efficient care and maintain HIPAA compliance.
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
Moving from an archaic file folder system to an EMR system requires maintained network infrastructure, security, and backup solutions. This allows the secure exchange of medical and patient information between health care providers, patients, insurers and other necessary administrative entities. SOTEK Solutions can guide your practice through the process of converting and leveraging modern technology to help you establish HIPPA and HITECH-compliant solutions while maintaining your technology to keep it running smoothly so you can focus on your patients.
