Small healthcare providers are working on outdated technology workflows and need an improvement to maximize healthcare cashflow. The old way increases the time to create and process claims, which has a direct effect on revenue. As an independent healthcare provider, having payors reimburse correctly and on time is critical to cash flow.
Maximize Healthcare Cashflow: Technology Workflows to Improve Reimbursements
When an IT Coordinator makes sense
A mature technology partner and an internal IT Coordinator deliver higher productivity at a lower cost than a fully staffed IT department. Remember the librarian coming to your classroom with the TV cart? It wasn't that the teacher could not setup and plug in the TV. It was just easier to schedule and have the librarian bring it.
Are you hiring for technology roles of the past?
Are you hiring for technology roles of the past? Below are three roles that your business needs to evaluate and consider outsourcing based on today's technology landscape. This is not an easy process, as there are PEOPLE in these roles that typically have reached the end of their careers or cannot obtain a similarly compensated role elsewhere.
Do you have a cyber attack response plan?
If your business suffered a (successful) cyber attack today how would you respond? There are no cyber police to call, nor is there a fire department to come put out the flames. A disaster recovery plan is NOT the same as a cyber attack response plan.
Are you in an unhealthy IT relationship?
The relationship between business and IT is more important than ever. A healthy relationship generates increased profitability and productivity for both parties. An unhealthy relationship delivers frustration, missed opportunities, and a lack of trust.
Workstation recovery is often overlooked in recovery planning
Workstation recovery is the most overlooked part of recovery planning. Recovering all your servers and data without workstations is not useful. This becomes critical as office locations and workstations increase. Reinstalling the operating system and applications for 10 workstations can be brute forced, the same cannot be said for 100. The uncomfortable stares of employees waiting to get their workstations back up and running is an event you want to avoid.

If you run a business and think RPO means run pass option, your business backup strategy is in trouble. An area of focus we highlighted last week was recovery planning. There are two key concepts in recovery planning. These concepts link directly to the success of your business surviving a ransomware event.
Three areas to focus on in the battle against ransomware
The surge in ransomware and cyber attacks is not stopping anytime soon. We have all seen the statistics, but when it is your business the math becomes real. We receive calls on a monthly basis from a business owner that is asking for help recovering from an attack.
How to perform technology alignment for your growing business
Technology alignment is critical for a growing business, especially as a business scales up. A car that is out of alignment behaves the same as a business. At slow speeds (low growth) the lack of alignment is not noticeable, but once you get on the highway hold on or the car will be drifting across the highway headed for a crash!
A business that is out of alignment crosses the lanes of lower productivity, less security, and less profit.
