Patient Demands Are Increasing at a Rapid Rate, But So Is Technology – Creating Challenges with Interoperability, Upkeep, And Of Course, Cybersecurity. BC Networks Provides IT Services for Healthcare Organizations Looking to Keep Technology Well-Managed to Ensure an Optimal Patient Experience.
As the world becomes more technologically advanced, people are expecting a faster, more efficient level of service everywhere they go – and that doesn’t stop at the doctor’s office. In fact, patient demands are increasing at a rapid rate. The quality of care is more important than ever before as patients around the world are starting to leverage their right to choose how and with whom they work with for their healthcare.
They want more transparency in terms of data and processes, as well as more efficiency in the way they’re served. Fortunately, technology is keeping up with patient demands – allowing for improved scheduling, minimized paperwork, greater communication with providers between visits, and more. But keeping up with technology advancements means tackling the challenges associated with:
Interoperability between systems to ensure they’re properly sharing data between one another.
Upkeep of technology to avoid using outdated equipment that is no longer supported by the manufacturer.
Cybersecurity to ensure patient data stays safe against threats that can compromise its integrity and confidentiality.
Adoption wherein physicians continue to prefer manual, paper-based methods as opposed to updated systems, such as an EHR.
Lastly, keeping up with technology advancements means staying ahead of industry-specific rules and regulations, such as HIPAA, which requires healthcare organizations to protect any sort of protected health information that is stored or transmitted by a covered entity or business associate, regardless of whether it’s electronic, paper or another form.
