Woburn, MA (PressExposure) February 15, 2012 -- In a medical office, glitches and outages with IT can have major consequences (like security breaches). Some are even life-threatening. In an effort to meet the special IT needs of medical offices in the greater Boston area, MD Tech Pro, a healthcare IT company, recently opened an office at 400 Trade Center, Suite 5900, in Woburn, Massachusetts.
"The special needs of a medical office go beyond making sure everything is up and running and that there's a backup plan for the backup plan," said Ace Taggart, managing partner of MD Tech Pro's Boston office. "With the HIPAA law, medical offices face security challenges a bit more stringent than your typical company."
The range of solutions MD Tech Pro offers includes:
Complete support and solutions for your practice
24/7/365 remote monitoring and repair
Software management and upgrades
EHR selection, implementation and EHR support services
Security risk analysis
Virus, spyware and security protection for all computers and servers
On-site, remote and phone / help-desk support 24/7/365
Discount hardware and software
In addition to its host of services, MD Tech Pro delivers additional consulting services to medical offices looking to convert existing records to electronic ones.
"There are stimulus funds from the federal government available for practices that convert to electronic records," said Taggart. "MD Tech Pro has the experience in this area so that the practice has a seamless conversion to electronic records and meets the 'meaningful use' criteria to be eligible for these funds. We can also help those practices that currently use electronic health records but do not meet the 'meaningful use' criteria needed to receive federal stimulus funds."
MD Tech Pro's Boston office includes a full staff of locally based IT support professionals, which is bolstered by the resources of a nationwide company. MD Tech Pro has offices in Arizona, Georgia and Colorado. MD Tech Pro anticipates having offices in over 100 markets by the end of 2015.
