Big Data is the Hidden Treasure
It’s no secret that data analytics is prevalent in essentially every industry, but you may be wondering what the big deal about big data really is and how it concerns you as a senior living provider.
This home care coordination company has been with vcpi for about a year. Our team had helped them deploy equipment and train staff on how to use their new IT system prior to their opening date. Because our client had vcpi as their IT partner, our client’s leadership could focus on their care models and leave the IT needs to us. We currently provide this client with Service Desk support, Mobile Device Management, and software licensing. In the past year, our client experienced a phishing attack via email for which we implemented Multi Factor Authentication.
Our team works diligently to fully understand our senior care clients' needs and strategic growth directions. We strive to deliver solutions to clients before they need them, essentially, to skate where the puck is going, not to where it has been. For many years, we've provided technology infrastructure planning and reliable implementation for senior living clients that are pursuing mergers, acquisitions and new construction.
Southwest LTC, one of vcpi’s longest running clients, leased four buildings in March 2019 through their affiliates, which were scheduled to open in April. Timing and expertise mean everything with acquisition situations. We understand that caregivers must have on-demand access to patient records that hold medication information, scheduling, and more. Internet disruption makes it hard for employees to view these files, which can be life threatening to patients.
Cost management is a critical component to a senior care organization’s IT strategy. Vcpi is a thought leader in cost management for assisted nursing and post-acute care organizations. As our customers’ ally in their business growth, we strive to regularly share mission critical industry insights.
The healthcare industry is notorious for experiencing data breaches, which is why it’s critical for 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.
