Cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses operate, and practices in healthcare are no exception. Cloud-based solutions offer many benefits over traditional methods, including reliability, convenience, security, and scalability. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the main advantages of cloud computing in the healthcare industry.
Telemedicine has been around for quite some time, but its popularity grew during the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare providers turned to telemedicine to ensure that patients were still able to receive quality healthcare services when lockdowns and travel restrictions were put in place.
Hectic workdays can easily overwhelm any healthcare worker, so it’s always a good idea for them to seek out solutions to organize their busy schedules. A good way for healthcare businesses to help staff better manage their time is by using online scheduling solutions.
The healthcare industry has been leveraging technology to improve patient outcomes. Innovations such as health apps and wearable tech even empower patients to exercise greater control over improving the quality of their lives.
In the healthcare industry, mistakes lead to misdiagnoses, improper medical treatment, and, inevitably, hospital readmissions. But business intelligence (BI) is changing that by equipping healthcare professionals with powerful real-time information.
At its core, BI software is all about data analytics.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations pertaining to IT have become much clearer over the past few years, but there are still a few areas in which your office might not be compliant. This isn’t necessarily because of negligence on your part, but rather a lack of understanding of the requirements.
Social media can be an effective tool for sharing experiences, building professional connections, and broadcasting conventional healthcare announcements. However, posts that contain client or patient-specific information can have dire consequences for healthcare organizations.
More and more healthcare organizations are realizing that there are more problems with paper-based medical records than there are benefits, and that it’s time to adopt electronic health records (EHRs). But while EHR systems offer better data management and security, they also come with certain inconveniences and inefficiencies.
Most, if not all, cybersecurity experts believe that anything connected to the internet can be hacked. So with the increasing popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT) and IoT devices in the healthcare industry, it’s only wise that organizations understand and address the risks associated with the ubiquity of IoT.
Computing devices that contain a treasure trove of patient data are attractive targets for cybercriminals.
Many healthcare organizations are at risk of data breaches caused by insider threats. These are security risks within your organization and can be any of your current or former employees, partners, and contractors who have knowledge about your computer systems.
