Fort Lauderdale, Fla., March 12, 2014 (GLOBENEWSWIRE) – Providing healthcare has become a complex, costly endeavor characterized by constant change. In 2014, for example, HIPAA-compliant healthcare providers must implement Stage 2 of the meaningful use of electronic health records (EHR) as well as adopt the new ICD-10 set of diagnostic codes, which adds 54,000 new codes to the 30-year-old ICD-9 code set.
Regardless of whether healthcare providers manage solo practices, small offices, community medical centers, or regional hospitals—the challenges of implementing HIPAA-compliant systems are the new normal and peace of mind seems gone for good.
The JDL TechWatch Managed Health IT Services program now features an expanded suite of HIPAA-compliant health IT services to address the explosion in EHR implementation and the impact of new challenges in 2014 and 2015. The expanded suite provides 24/7 IT infrastructure management, backup and recovery services, data protection for mobile and fixed devices as well as text message encryption, vendor management service, software and security updates, real-time dashboards, reporting and quarterly service reviews.
“When healthcare providers adopt the prescribed JDL TechWatch program, they are assured that their health IT services are HIPAA-compliant through a program that not only certifies compliance but provides support during audits as well,” said Scott Fluegge, President of JDL Technologies.
From JDL Technologies’ state-of-the-art managed services operations center, the JDL TechWatch team augments a healthcare provider’s technical resources, thereby enabling the provider to avoid the high cost of hiring a dedicated health IT professional. In addition to certified HIPAA-compliant services, other JDL TechWatch benefits include:
Enhanced performance of health IT systems through proactive monitoring, asset management and preventive maintenance
Fewer interruptions and delays caused by technology issues and user needs
Improved security through ongoing patch management and software updates

Freedom to focus on providing a great healthcare experience for patients.
In addition, the JDL TechWatch Managed Health IT Services program delivers almost immediate return on investment, fully managed deployment, and a peace of mind that healthcare providers haven’t enjoyed in a very long time.
