eBook: Your Guide to Healthcare ITHealthcare and healthcare information technology (IT) are in the midst of a transformation. Advancements are allowing providers to better meet the needs of their patient communities and, in the process, improving the delivery of care, overall quality, and outcomes. Playing an integral role in these efforts is technology. IT is helping healthcare providers to make faster, smarter decisions concerning care decisions; add new modalities for care delivery; better support patients throughout the care continuum; and drive efficiencies that reduce costs, enhance staff productivity, and strengthen the bottom line.

Unfortunately, as healthcare providers work to maximize the benefits of IT, they must confront significant challenges. These include evolving compliance requirements, opportunistic cybercriminals, natural and manmade disasters, and now the COVID-19 pandemic. Regardless of an organization's size, these challenges can represent significant barriers to the delivery of safe, cost-effective, and efficient care.

In this eBook, we start by providing a broad overview of the healthcare IT of today, discussing key trends and developments, reviewing essential technologies you should understand, and sharing an expert's perspective on IT challenges and opportunities. We then dive into a discussion about the numerous benefits of healthcare IT and working with a healthcare managed services provider. Next, we explain what you should know about healthcare IT managed services and selecting the right managed services provider partner. Finally, we look ahead at the future of healthcare IT, how it's changing the delivery of care, and key trends to watch in the coming years.

The guide delivers important updates, practical insights, and guidance that will help you make smarter short- and long-term decisions concerning your healthcare IT. Topics discussed include the following:

  • Telehealth and telemedicine
  • Cloud computing
  • Video collaboration
  • Predictive analytics

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.
