Windows 7 End of Life: Why Healthcare Companies Should Upgrade ASAP

 

Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7 as of 2020. Vcpi has developed a program to upgrade your Windows 7 devices to reduce chances of data theft and the costly HIPAA fines that come with it. 

The healthcare industry is notorious for experiencing data breaches. That is why it’s critical for healthcare providers to know about the end of Microsoft Windows 7. Upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10 is the only way to continue receiving the upgrades and support needed to combat data theft. Unfortunately, healthcare has been the slowest industry to switch to Windows 10, which puts them at higher risk of cybercrime.

Network Refresh for Senior Living Environments

Confidently Tackle Future & Emerging Technology Implementations

We are all challenged by how quickly the landscape of Senior Living technology changes as it moves forward. In the LTPAC industry, our ability to confidently adopt technology is what enables communities to enrich resident experiences, improve caregiver’s efficiency, and grow occupancy.

A network optimized to support the growing technology needs of both caregiving operations and resident consumption is imperative for these benefits to be realized.

Growth is a common goal for businesses and in almost any situation, it is the correct mindset to be in. The first obstacle to tackle in this journey is developing a strategy that will effectively enable growth. Following the creation of a market growth strategy the main challenge moving forward with execution will be addressing the fact that teams staffed for normal operations don’t have the capacity to achieve their growth goals while maintaining quality base operations.

MAM – Mobile Application Management for LTPAC & Senior Living

How To Safeguard Applications Available At Your Caregivers’ Fingertips 

The rapid development of mobile technology in recent years has reshaped how and when healthcare is provided, as well as where sensitive data can be obtained and by whom. However, sustaining the required level of data security across mobile devices can present challenges for your business. 

Long term care IT spending: CapEx vs. OpEx

CapEx (Capital Expenditures) vs. OpEx (Operating Expenditures)

With the rise of cloud solutions several years ago, many Senior Living organizations have begun shifting IT expenses to an OpEx (Operating Costs) model. So many of these long term care facilities are well capitalized when they are built and pay up front for the hardware they need to get their facility operational. After being in business a few years, they face ongoing challenges with margins, billings and reimbursements that make it much more difficult to accommodate capital expenditures on an ongoing basis. 

Finding ways to fit ongoing IT expenses into their operating expenditures is far more practical and accessible than relying on influxes or accumulated capital to make needed improvements to technical infrastructure.

What will a service desk for “always on” EMR cost you?

Caregiving workflows and business operations rely on digital technology

The “always-on” world of digital workflows at the core of which is your EHR solution requires a unique team of healthcare and IT-savvy individuals. 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, this team must be available to do whatever it takes to keep your front-line on-line. Caregiving team members are highly dependent on technology to do their jobs, just as your administration and management are. Uptime keeps your reimbursements and reputation on track.

Are calls to your help desk disrupting IT productivity?

One of the biggest disruptions to IT staff productivity is having to rapidly shift from proactive work on strategic projects to cover reactive requests from end users.

While there are many techniques that IT teams will try to help mitigate these challenges, in the end, your production systems have to stay up and your users have to be able to access them when and where they need them.  At the same time, businesses have come to rely on IT teams to deliver strategic solutions that help essential business functions, and delays on these projects can be very costly for the organization. Missed due dates are not an option.
