FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Providing healthcare has become a complex, costly endeavor characterized by constant change. In 2014, for example, HIPAA-compliant healthcare providers must implement Stage 2 of the meaningful use of electronic health records (EHR) as well as adopt the new ICD-10 set of diagnostic codes, which adds 54,000 new codes to the 30-year-old ICD-9 code set.
Regardless of whether healthcare providers manage solo practices, small offices, community medical centers, or regional hospitals—the challenges of implementing HIPAA-compliant systems are the new normal and peace of mind seems gone for good.
The JDL TechWatch Managed Health IT Services program now features an expanded suite of HIPAA-compliant health IT services to address the explosion in EHR implementation and the impact of new challenges in 2014 and 2015. The expanded suite provides 24/7 IT infrastructure management, backup and recovery services, data protection for mobile and fixed devices as well as text message encryption, vendor management service, software and security updates, real-time dashboards, reporting and quarterly service reviews.
"When healthcare providers adopt the prescribed JDL TechWatch program, they are assured that their health IT services are HIPAA-compliant through a program that not only certifies compliance but provides support during audits as well," said Scott Fluegge, President of JDL Technologies.
From JDL Technologies' state-of-the-art managed services operations center, the JDL TechWatch team augments a healthcare provider's technical resources, thereby enabling them to avoid the high cost of hiring a dedicated health IT professional.
