Resolving to make your clinic safe, secure, and compliant this year is critical. Healthcare data is an invaluable asset that must be handled with care. In 2018, we saw how data breaches cause significant financial damage, disruption of business operations, and harm to clinic reputations – and we don’t see that changing in 2019.
Digital healthcare is transforming the way patients receive care. It’s also changing workflow and operations in clinics by enabling visits that happen outside of clinic walls over great distance for the convenience of patient and practitioner. Deviations from the norm can create some uncertainty and concern, and because of the sensitive nature of healthcare, we understand why some feel resistant and apprehensive towards change.
With the emergence of new digital tools, the patient-provider relationship is evolving, and the expectation for healthcare teams to communicate using patient-centred platforms is becoming more prominent.
