SOUTHFIELD, Mich., December 7, 2009 – Secure-24, Inc., a leading provider of managed hosting and disaster recovery services, and ATMP Consulting Group, a strategic IT specialist in electronic medical record (EMR) standards, announced their partnership to offer Private and Group Practice Physicians secure hosting and project management for their EMR applications.
In an effort to improve patient care, the health care industry aims to have every patient’s paper medical history — regardless of their location, doctor, or insurance company — converted and stored electronically within a national EMR standard.
Having records managed and stored electronically makes it easier for patients to move from one doctor to another and eliminate the redundancy of records. It also helps medical practices become HIPAA compliant, which is necessary for eliminating errors and payment by Medicaid organizations.
The partnership provides a combination of expertise and affordable services for medical practices not wanting to build and manage their own intricate IT systems. Secure-24 offers a deep knowledge of mission-critical IT applications, industry-leading infrastructure and state-of-the-art data centers to deliver highly available and scalable solutions to organizations that need to meet rigorous compliance mandates (i.e. SAS 70, HIPAA, SOX, GLB, ISO, FFIEC).
“Physicians have a choice of using a Software as a Service model or a locally deployed and hosted model. With our new partnership, Secure-24 will provide physicians with an affordable and established infrastructure that is flexible, accessible and stable,” said Matthias Horch, Secure-24 chief executive officer.
ATMP Consulting Group has a proven business model to ensure physicians and medical clinics are compliant in electronic medical record (EMR) management. ATMP President Joe Dylewski advises executives of small and large companies on developing and implementing Information Technology strategies.
“A financial investment in technology infrastructure is present in any software implementation. Secure-24’s offering immediately provides a Private or Group Practice an environment that is HIPAA compliant and takes advantage of the latest platform standards,” said Dylewski.
The partnership will help physicians avoid mistakes in project management, governance, and system failures caused by insufficient requirements analysis and architecture design.
