IT Solutions for Healthcare Providers

Your patients depend on you as their healthcare provider. Your IT shouldn't get in the way. Preferred can help improve your practice with personalized technology services.

At Preferred, we have a thorough understanding of the strict privacy policies and mandated technology guidelines required for health practices to successfully move into the digital age.

The exchange of patient information between healthcare providers, insurers, patients, and other administrative entities requires regulated security standards. In 1996, the U.S. Government established privacy rules that regulate the disclosure and use of a patient's healthcare information. Don't let these regulations stunt your ability to utilize digital medical records. We can help you meet HIPPA and HITECH compliance standards to take advantage of modern technology and streamline your operations without adding overhead.

HIPAA and HITECH Compliance

Staying within HIPAA and HITECH doesn't mean sacrificing technology to make your practice more agile.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was established keep personal health information confidential. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) establishes U.S. Government-mandated checkpoints pertaining to the implementation of various technologies. Non-compliance is extremely risky. Fortunately, Preferred has a strong understanding in IT security solutions and compliance pertaining to the healthcare industry, and can implement new solutions to enhance your day-to-day workflows without stepping out of bounds with the rules.

Software, Communication, and Infrastructure Solutions

We manage your technology allowing you to operate with the agility you need.

Step away from the archaic file folder system and take advantage of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to speed up communication, delivery, security, and ensure your records are backed up.

Preferred is dedicated to guiding your practice to the digital age so you can utilize new technologies to assist you in your day-to-day challenges.
