Introducing IT systems into your business environment introduces 3 inherent risks for most businesses, Data Loss, Downtime/Lost Productivity, and Data Theft. Health care providers also face a fourth risk, Government Compliance (HIPAA/HITECH). Fortunately by mitigating the 3 universal risks, most of the compliance issues will be automatically taken care of.
In this presentation, we will be discussing each of the 4 Risks health care providers face, one at a time, and giving some simple things they can do to help lower these risks. We will also discuss the things you need to make sure your IT Professionals can provide and perform for you.
We will end by discussing the additional rewards, incentive payments, provided by the government for doing your Health IT right and meeting the “meaningful use” requirements.
