IT Costs Can be Reduced for Healthcare Providers
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) requirements are increasing healthcare IT costs. Plans to accelerate health information exchange (HIE) proposed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services; to build a seamless and secure flow of information, including patient access to health records, is essential to transforming the U.S. healthcare system will put further pressure on existing IT environments.
Savvy technology leaders in healthcare are looking to cut costs and improve the reliability; control and security of their IT infrastructure are turning to outsourcing Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM). Gartner reports “70% of support for IT infrastructure services can be performed from a remote location, reducing labor costs by 10% to 50%, resulting in a 3% to 30% overall net savings, excluding one-time transition charges.
8 Ways to Reduce Healthcare IT Costs

Many IT consulting firms have specialties, so you need to understand their expertise. You do not want a consulting firm with a focus on backup and disaster recovery services to provide recommendations for operations processes.
IT environments today are so interdependent and interconnected that we recommend selecting a consulting firm with a broad range of experience in many disciplines, like Synoptek.

Data is critical to your healthcare business, and if the security and management of that data is equally important, then you want to establish a relationship with a provider like Synoptek that will be a partner with you and not a faceless vendor who just sells a commodity solution.
