Are you a healthcare C-Level executive with IT responsibilities or an internal healthcare technology pro that is struggling to find time and the right technical talent to deal with the healthcare compliance, security and privacy needs of your organization?

Improved Patient Care

We understand that healthcare providers are under more and more pressure to improve patient care while also cutting costs.  The need to ensure IT is secure, well performing and available requires healthcare providers to spend thousands or even millions to achieve.   To meet those goals, healthcare providers need a partner with healthcare IT experience with a diverse set of skills.

Today’s healthcare provider needs to be thinking about and managing:

HIPAA/HITECH – How do we ensure we are doing everything we can to meet security and privacy compliance?

Meaningful Use – How do we make sure we can attest for each stage of Meaningful Use as quickly as possible?

Mobile Medicine – How can I ensure my mobile devices are secure?

IT Staff – How do I make sure we have the right skills and experience to manage IT and also deal with our unique regulations?

HIPAA Assessments – How do you know that you will pass and audit and not get a fine?

Unified Security Management – How do you know your network and EMRs are secure from hackers or internal threats?

We have extensive experience in many of the software applications you use today.

  • Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
  • Productivity Applications
  • Accounting and Finance Software
  • Infrastructure and networking

The key to mobility in healthcare centers around the use of smartphones, tablets and lightweight notebooks.  The challenge with these devices is ensuring they are secure and well managed.  With the increase of employees bringing their own (BYOD) devices and expecting IT to make sure they have access to their work resources while still using it personally, IT is left with several challenges:

  • Compliance/Security – Our mobile device management (MDM) software ensures that devices are secure.
  • Setup – Mobile devices can be self provisioned through a link via text message, email or QR code.
  • Theft/Loss – If a device is lost or stolen, the device can be wiped

It is very difficult to find all of the skills and experience needed to successfully manage a healthcare IT environment with one or two people.  At NorthStar, we provide a full IT department to every healthcare provider we serve, including:

  • vCIO – Your dedicated vCIO is experienced in healthcare IT requirements and can help navigate the complex HIPAA, HITECH, Meaningful Use and Affordable Care Act jungles.
  • Proactive Network Administration – Our team of certified and experienced network admins will ensure your internal services and cloud services are secure, well performing and available when your employees need them.
  • Service and Help Desk – When things break (and they always do!), our fully staffed service desk is there to answer your questions and get your team back to work quickly!
