Health Management Systems
Health Management Systems are designed to help healthcare professionals collect, store, retrieve and exchange patient health information more efficiently and enable better patient care.
These technology projects, often oriented towards compliance, can require significant investments in terms of time and resources. When selecting and implementing a healthcare management system, providers should keep three things in mind.
There are two main types of health management systems: electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management, which organizations will need to assess, depending on their size, business needs, and compliance requirements.
Many healthcare providers are switching to EHR systems to meet the Compliance Deadline of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) in 2015; others do so simply to modernize their operations.
Study management software solutions, which can be connected to EHR systems, are typically used by small and medium-sized medical practices to organize specific details about patients and the care they receive from the study.
Most healthcare management systems, particularly for large healthcare providers, are provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
Since software is provided on demand via the cloud and not through internal systems, healthcare professionals must pay special attention to maintaining the privacy and security of PHI (patient-protected health information).
When choosing a SaaS provider to provide their healthcare management system, providers must then ask and receive clear answers for a number of questions, such as:
- How do I keep my data safe?
- Where is the data stored?
- How do your practices meet our compliance requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)?
In this sense, the IT-HEALTH Health Monitoring System solution is excellent, the screening and management system of the health information flow of foreign citizens and international travelers, useful for the profiling of the health card.
