Chief Information Officer (CIO) Consulting:
Our experienced CIOs will provide the practice with the guidance necessary to ensure the alignment of technology strategies with its longtime business goals, and to increase business agility. We will assist you with proper budgeting, as well as perform a ROI analysis on all potential technology investments. The practice benefits from the experience, knowledge, and convenience of a CIO at a fraction of the cost.
Security and Disaster Planning
Neglecting to implement the proper computer security considerations into disaster recovery planning can make an already critical situation spiral into one that suffers considerable setbacks. We will help the practice plan for emergencies and make them feel confident in their computer security.
Security Risk Assessment
We will evaluate the practice’s security and privacy safeguards to ensure that they are compliant with all regulations. This could help them avoid an embarrassing and costly PHI breach, while providing them with the necessary documentation to satisfy Meaningful Use requirements and protect them in the event of an ONC audit.
- Review and update PHI inventory to determine where electronic and other data is stored
- Examination of the three safeguards required by 45 CFR 164.308 (a)(1) – administrative, physical, and technical, including the latest Omnibus Rules changes
- Assessment of current HIPAA security compliance operations including safeguards in place, as well as vulnerabilities and specific threats to safeguards
- Evaluation of existing security policies and procedures to ensure they are sufficient to be effective, currently operational, and meet compliance programs appropriate for the size of your organization
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan
Every organization needs a plan in preparation for unforeseen risks in order to be able to continue operations in the case of an emergency or natural disaster. We will help you put together a clear guideline to follow and steps to take to restore operations after such a disaster. Such a plan will ensure that the practice and its patients suffer as few consequences as possible in the event of a catastrophe.
IT Technology Roadmap
A forward-thinking IT plan is critical for any organization. Aligning a practice’s business goals with their technology infrastructure is important in enabling smooth and consistent growth. We can assist in the selection and implementation of the technology that is right for the practice’s specific needs.
IT Strategy and Management guidance
We work with the practice to learn their business and goals in every area (Operations, Finance, Sales, Marketing), and then help them form technology strategies for meeting those goals.
IT Assessment: Enterprise architecture planning
We use best-in-class industry techniques to review the practice’s operations. Upon completion, we provide a detailed Assessment Report with recommendations tailored to the organization’s specific needs.
