Medical Information Technology For Clinics
Technology has never been more important than right now when the world is in the midst of a medical crisis caused by Coronavirus (SARS-Co-2). If you’re running a medical practice it’s really important that your information technology is rock solid.
More patients will be going into your clinic this year to get medical check ups and government departments want the data from those medical check ups so they can track how the disease is spreading. They also want people to keep a safe distance from each other so that the disease spreads slower than it would if we were all in close proximity with one another.
That’s why technology is vital and we can assist with your back ups. The back ups are cloud based so if you are in the situation where you have to leave the practice for any reason and start working from home, you can do so. Cloud based back ups are great because there’s no physical records that could be lost or destroyed in a fire or other unplanned event. When you’re handling a health crisis it can give you pease of mind.
If you have decided that some of your non essential admin staff need to work from home then we can help with NBN solutions so that your internet is secure when you’re at home and that your data is not compromised and so that you can send data via email or another secure messaging system swiftly and efficiently.
Your clinic data is important under normal circumstances and with the outbreak of Coronavirus we want to protect your data so that it’s not at risk of being compromised. We can assist with data management programs, data security and data back ups. If your data is secure then your patients will be able to place trust in you that you’re looking after their records in a time when it’s vitally important. The government can also trust you if they ask you for patient information. Our solutions mean you can easily provide this information without disclosing the individual patient’s identity.
It may not just be information about Coronavirus that the government asks you for. They may just want general health information related to the patients that you see or what conditions they tend to present with when they see you in the practice. Health information technology saves doctors and nurses a lot of time during consultations so they can get on with their job of treating patients rather than mucking around with technology. Pay the experts to manage your information technology and you’ll feel confident that your systems work efficiently.
Speaking of efficiency, our technology solutions give you the option to manage clinic check ins effectively. You can find out what your patient is coming in for before they even come into the clinic. When you’re dealing with an infectious disease that is essential for the protection of your other patients, your medical staff and you as well. Clinic check ins and online bookings give you the opportunity to plan in advance, saving you a lot of hassle in the long run.
When you’re managing a busy medical clinic you need to streamline your services so you can focus on what’s important – medical research and the welfare of your patients and staff. Online bookings give you the flexibility to book patients in 15 minute appointment blocks. You can manage your calendar and if you have time between appointments it’s up to you whether you spend it conducting medical research, following up on patient notes or running medical trials to improve future patient outcomes.
Websites are so important these days, especially with more and more people staying at home or using their mobile devices to find out the latest medical information. We’re expert web developers and designers who’ve built websites for numerous happy clients. Creating a medical website allows you to reach patients or the general public who want more information before they even call you or set foot in your clinic. It gives you an opportunity to build a reputation as a trusted medical advisor who knows what they’re talking about. Medicine is an industry where trust is so important, especially in a time when there is a lot of misinformation and likelihood that people will jump to conclusions about their health. You’re doing the community a great service by getting a website built that contains your details and past accomplishments.
We work within Office 365 as well so if you keep your patient records in Excel but you’re unsure of how to use all the features we can also assist with Office 365 installations and management. Technology doesn’t need to be difficult to use and it doesn’t need to take up a significant amount of your time. Hand it over to the experts and you’ll have more time for the things that you’re good at – diagnosing and treating patients.
Our IT solutions don’t end there. If you are moving your practice to another location and you’re worried about down time we’ll help set up your cloud back ups and medical software before you move. We’ll then check that your systems are working once the relocation is complete.
What if you’re setting up a new practice for the very first time and you don’t know where to start? Don’t even think about it. Just give us a call and we’ll explain everything you need to set up so you have your IT infrastructure running by the time you open the door. to patients for the very first time.
