Information Management

How will you manage evolving healthcare technologies, practice management systems, electronic health records and compliance? 

How will you manage countless pieces of information? 

Information Management in a medical practice includes the following:

  1. Develop and maintain appropriate internal communication pathways for clinical and nonclinical staff.
  2. Develop a technology plan that establishes the criteria for selection and implementation of information technology, including computer systems, Internet strategies and telecommunications.
  3. Plan and design a technology security process to protect patient and practice data systems.
  4. Manage medical information systems including medical records, medication administration and health care related document storage.
  5. Develop and implement processes to comply with mandated reports of specified patient issues to regulatory agencies.
