From the moment I was told about Chris Jann and contracted the Medicus team, they have been an integral part of starting and maintaining our pediatric office. I am eternally grateful for them and their professionalism. Shout out for the constant guidance needed in this ever-evolving digital world (all-encompassing it too, what type of computer/scanner/phone/email/back up — overwhelming). With governmental regulations, security concerns, and business management for a busy pediatric office, their help has consistently remained invaluable for management of our IT healthcare world. Very grateful.
Medicus not only resolves our ‘acute’ issues, but solves the underlying issues and works to develop processes and solutions that will keep our it operating efficiently each day. They have been quick to respond to our issues, and most of the time triages our issues as we would. We have a complicated system with multiple sites, windows/mac operating systems, dragon, cloud-based software/storage. We are comfortable that Medicus keeps us HIPAA compliant, too.
