Utah IT Consulting For Dental Practices: HIPAA Compliance Report & Action Plan

Apr 22, 2024

Your patients’ data is your most important asset – make sure it is being kept secure with a full-service IT assessment by InfoTech Enterprise Solutions (801) 210-1651.

IT & Health: An Essential Partnership

In their fascinating report titled, "The U.S. Healthcare Non-System", the AMA Journal of Ethics explains the ever-evolving relationship between technology and medicine. They start at the very beginning, with the advent of frontier "hospitals" whose treatments were more likely to cause lasting damage than offer any sort of cure. As we look back at these institutions, it is difficult to believe that this true wild-west era of medicine ended only around a century ago - very nearly in living memory.

The report goes on to detail the factors that shaped our modern healthcare system, showcasing the fact that what we think of as the framework of the medical industry today - in which health insurance plays a significant role in the lives of patients and providers - did not truly begin to take form until the 1960s. 

The point of this retrospection is to point out that so much of what we have in terms of healthcare IT is incredibly new, and for practices that have been around for decades, the tech may have moved on without the practice even realizing it. So many institutions - particularly dental practices - are using outdated technology to store highly sensitive data, holding a mirror to the unsafe methods used by those wild-west doctors. After all, your patients trust you to keep their information safe; are you failing them?
