Information Technology Services
Recent changes in the healthcare marketplace and government regulations has lead healthcare organizations to find it difficult to maintain their level of information technology services, while answering to increasing patient expectations. Current issues must be met with the adaptation and enhancement of the Information Technology Services landscape, with up-to-date technology and superior IT support systems. Whether your institution is a small clinic or a large private practice, failure to consider all risks related to Information Technology could result in unnecessary exposure to liability. The simple loss of a smartphone can unsettle your facility’s operations and result in the loss of confidential client information, putting you and your practice at risk.
TSG employs some of the most proficient IT consultants in the healthcare field. We are continually producing a significant impact on hospitals and other healthcare organizations, allowing them to focus on delivery of service rather than being hampered by the constant resolution of issues. Many facilities require removal of many of the routine operations that burdened their already overloaded in-house Information Technology Services staff. Our unique relationship with facilities alleviates that burden while still allowing hospital IT to retain complete control of all operations and decision processes. Collaborating with our experienced IT consultants resulted in a definite improvement in user satisfaction, faster up-time, and significant financial benefits. The utilization of a healthcare Information Technology Services consultant allows up-to-date hospital IT departments to promptly increase the performance of data center operations, improve IT staff skill sets, and enhance user-IT relations.
At The Shams Group we believe in working with practices to help you achieve the following:
- Remotely access the EMR system
- Easily access data, while minimizing data risks
- Utilize specific resources to increase efficiency
- Minimize liability
- Stay within HIPAA compliance and regulations (we are certified HIPAA compliant professionals)
Additionally, TSG provides support for your Electrical Medical Record and Practice Management systems, ensuring that they are functional 24/7. This is absolutely essential to any physician office’s operations.
We complete a full risk assessment in which IT vulnerabilities and threats are taken into consideration in order to secure essential data. Following this initial assessment, we execute policies to minimize identified risks. These policies may include the protection of networks and services, as well as the securing of all smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Physician offices and clinics utilizing secure cloud/hosted technology are further protected by the adoption of Service Organization Control (SOC).
