Whether it’s helping people to live healthier lives by giving doctors the tools to treat illnesses or simplifying how we connect with providers, there’s no aspect of the healthcare industry that hasn’t been transformed by technological innovation.
But while these advancements may provide greater functionality, they’re also happening at a more rapid pace. There's a term for this in the tech world. It's called "exponential advancement," and it's becoming a problem for hospitals.
As these resources multiply, so does the burden of managing and maintaining IT systems and infrastructure. Keeping up can be difficult and time-consuming, especially for smaller healthcare providers with fewer than their metropolitan counterparts.
This is where Managed IT Services come in.
Managed IT services refer to outsourcing the management of a company's IT systems and infrastructure to a third-party. In healthcare, Managed IT Services can help hospitals, clinics, and other facilities by taking on specific responsibilities to free up traditional IT teams, allowing them to focus on ensuring on-site clinician systems are running at peak performance.
Partnering with a Managed IT Services vendor can provide several benefits to healthcare providers, including:
Managed IT Services vendors have teams of experts who can proactively monitor and manage IT systems, identify potential issues, and resolve them before they impact operations. This means that healthcare IT teams can focus on helping clinicians deliver quality patient care rather than worrying about resolving large-scale issues beyond their skillset.
Managed IT Services can be more cost-effective than managing IT systems in-house. By partnering with a vendor, providers can benefit from the latest technology and expertise without the need for a large IT department or the high cost of ownership. This can be especially helpful for rural and community providers struggling with staffing shortages.
Healthcare providers have a unique responsibility to protect patient data and comply with data protection regulations. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of qualified security experts in the field.
Managed IT Services vendors can provide robust security measures and tenured expertise to protect vital health systems against cyber threats and data breaches, ensuring minimal downtime and maximum patient data safeguards.
As healthcare providers grow and expand, their IT needs are going to change. Managed IT Services vendors can provide scalable solutions that can adapt to changing needs, ensuring that healthcare providers always have access to the technology and support they need, no matter the size of their footprint.
