JDL TechWatch Program Expands Certified HIPAA-Compliant Health IT Services
   March 11, 2014

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

  • Enhanced employee experience through expert remote help desk support

  • Instant and ongoing access to exceptional technical expertise

  • 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.
