Owners and Office Managers of Private Medical Practices have their hands full to say the least. On top of their normal duties, most practices are currently working on implementing an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system, preparing for a ICD-10 conversion, and dealing with changes in their reimbursement requirements.
“The IT needs of the Private Medical Practice span a broader spectrum than many other types of businesses and the last thing they need to worry about is the complexity of their technology or the reliability of their IT infrastructure,” says Phil Stinson, CEO of Intec Solutions. “Medical staffs need to focus on treating patients and growing their practices. Spending time and energy managing IT doesn’t need to be on the Doctor’s or Practice Manager’s plate.”
Some strategic IT challenges for Private Medical Practices…
- Improving work flow efficiencies
- Interfacing IT systems with multiple locations and/or the medical center
- Implementing mobile technologies
Add on that all this technology has to be compliant with HIPAA patient privacy laws and you have a major undertaking for any Private Medical Practice.
Managed IT Services Make Sense for Private Medical Practices
“The overwhelming IT needs of medical practices is why managed services make so much sense for them,” states Brandon Bailey, IT manager at Intec Solutions. “We can bring whatever services the practice needs to the table fully implemented and supported. We can then design a plan to manage each specific need and all this can be done with a budget friendly fixed monthly fee that can be easily planned or adjusted for growth.”

“The proactivity of the Managed Service Agreement (MSA) allows our practice’s IT infrastructure to run smoothly so the providers can focus on treating patients. We miss seeing Brandon around here because things run so smoothly now” says Barbara Goebel, Office Manager of Tristate Arthritis & Rheumatology. “Problems are resolved before we even know there is a problem!
“The latest upgrade to our EMR System has greatly improved the speed and efficiency of our office, which translates into improved patient care. This has been tremendously helpful,” says Dr. Lee Colglazier, one of the 5 practicing physicians at Tristate Arthritis & Rheumatology.
