It’s imperative for healthcare organizations and business associates to take every precaution when it comes to managing protected health information or PHI.

Telemedicine — the practice of administering medical care remotely — is increasing in popularity because of its practicality. Most healthcare businesses have been implementing it for decades, but advancements in telecommunications tools have vastly improved telemedicine.

Patient care does not begin and end with giving timely medical attention. It also requires enforcing strict security measures to ensure patients’ personal information is always kept confidential. Choosing the right managed services provider (MSP) that provides tailor-fit, cost-effective, point-to-point solutions will help achieve both medical and technological concerns centralized for easy monitoring.
