MANAGED HEALTHCARE IT IN TEXAS
Check out our article regarding the Benefits, Weaknesses, & Problems of IT in the Healthcare industry.
Healthcare companies face major risks in processing, securing, and maintaining patient data.
Aside from needing your EMR to be streamlined and secure, you must ensure you match all cybersecurity regulations.
Not to mention the major impact downtime has on your ability to take care of your patients effectively.
Major focus for healthcare IT should be on cybersecurity but also effective operations for maximum uptime, happy end users, no lag in your ability to treat patients, and less frustration with your tech.
GET AHEAD OF THE NEXT INCIDENT
In 2021 alone, data breaches in Texas hospitals affected more than 3.8 million people. Hospitals and healthcare facilities must be continually improving their EMR systems to stay compliant with HIPPA guidelines. Do you have an Incident Response Team in place and ready for the next event?

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO SECURE & STREAMLINE YOUR HEALTHCARE IT?
Take an Internal Audit of Your IT
Your first step is identifying the key issues that are impacting performance in your healthcare office.
Communication problems permeate every industry but none are as urgent as those in the healthcare industry.
- Team collaboration is a struggle.
- You’ve outgrown your tech and your old desk phones or antiquated computers are causing more headache than help.
- Printed notes are putting you at risk.
- Policy changes aren’t reaching the right people.
- No way to quickly communicate urgent issues.
You need a full Unified Communications integration to upgrade your voice & collaboration platforms such as phone systems and Microsoft 365 Business Voice for smoother communications.
Healthcare facilities are particularly susceptible to ransomware attacks and health-targeted cybersecurity threats. If patient data is lost, your facility is facing:
- Loss of credibility
- Loss of trust
- HIPPA Penalties
If you are seeking to achieve cyber resilience for your healthcare agency, you should consider having processes for compliance with the following as high priority focus items:
- NIST 800-53
- ISO/IEC 27001
- PCI DSS
We would suggest having a Zero Trust policy with all data and interactions – treat every interaction as a potential threat to patient data. In addition to this, be sure to have a solid Incident Response Plan in place.
Compliance is an ongoing commitment. Revisions to regulations are constant. We suggest you learn more about Managed Cybersecurity as an option for true cyber resilience and peace of mind.
Natural disasters are an ever-looming threats for Texas areas – with flooding in San Antonio, hurricanes in Corpus Christi, the ever looming threat of tornadoes in Houston, and wildfires in Austin – there is no shortage of potentially hazardous disasters looming in Texas. Any and all of these risks have a major impact on your healthcare facilities operations and security.
Having effective communication channels is key to navigating a natural disaster in your area. Additionally, having a plan for protecting data in the event of a disaster is paramount. We would suggest that you consider data backup and disaster recovery as a top priority.
Unhappy employees can sometimes be a result of bad tech making their lives more difficult. If your doctors and PAs are complaining about faulty systems, you may be setting them up for failure and ultimately losing valuable resources.
IT VALUE BROUGHT

We have received more service in the short time that we have been with your company than we received from our previous IT company in an entire year. You are also solving issues that the previous company was either unable or unwilling to address.”
