Frequently Asked Questions

What is IT in healthcare?
IT in healthcare is the use of technology within the medical industry. This can include the use of computers and software for medical records, the use of medical devices and equipment, or providing internet access and communication tools for medical professionals.
What are 5 examples of health IT applications in the medical field?

1. Electronic medical records (EMR): EMRs are medical records that are stored electronically rather than on paper. They can include a patient’s medical history, allergies, medications, and other important information. EMRs are becoming increasingly common as they are more secure and efficient than traditional medical records.

2. Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS): PACS is a system that allows medical images such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans to be stored and accessed electronically. This allows medical professionals to quickly and easily access these images for diagnosis and treatment.

3. Hospital information systems (HIS): HIS is a computer system that is used by hospitals to manage patient data. It includes features such as electronic registration, medical billing, and prescription drug orders. HIS helps to streamline hospital operations and improve patient care.

4. Telemedicine: Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications technologies to provide medical care remotely. This can include providing consultations via video call, sending patient data between healthcare providers, or even performing remote surgeries. Telemedicine has the potential to improve access to medical care for patients in rural areas or those who live far from medical facilities.

5. mHealth: mHealth is the use of mobile technologies such as smartphones and tablets for health-related purposes. mHealth can be used for things such as tracking fitness goals, managing chronic diseases, or even diagnosing illnesses. mHealth has the potential to improve health outcomes by making it easier for people to track their health data and get medical advice when they need it most.

What are examples of healthcare information technology?
The medical industry is one of the most data-intensive industries in the world. From patient medical records to medical images to prescription data, healthcare providers must manage and protect an enormous amount of sensitive information. This is where managed IT services come in.

Managed IT services are a type of IT outsourcing that involves a third-party provider managing and protecting a company’s IT infrastructure. In the case of the healthcare industry, this often includes managing and securing medical data. Managed IT providers have the experience and resources necessary to keep data safe and compliant with HIPAA regulations. They can also help to improve the efficiency and reliability of a healthcare organization’s IT systems.

Managed IT services can be a great option for healthcare organizations that are looking for ways to improve their IT infrastructure while also staying compliant with HIPAA regulations. Managed IT providers have the experience and resources necessary to keep data safe and secure, allowing healthcare organizations to focus on providing quality care to their patients.

How can a Managed Service Provider help with HIPAA compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requires anyone who transmits or holds individually identifiable health information whether electronic, paper, or oral follow these guidelines. Any organization that deals with PHI information is required to follow HITRUST standards.

Managed IT Services can provide security guidance based on HIPAA regulations as well as risk analysis and management.
