Growing need for health IT support

There is a growing need for health information technology (health IT) support these days. More hospitals and physician practices are transitioning from paper-based records to computerized records. Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are becoming the new "standard" in the world of health care, but technical glitches and computer problems are causing endless frustration. As a result, there are a number of organizations that are rapidly expanding their support staff and they are offering remote IT support to many health care clients. If you have strong computer skills, you may be interested in learning how your skills can be utilized by technology companies that are looking for professionals who understand health care security, compliance, patient privacy, and HIPAA regulations. If you can troubleshoot your own computers, then you'll save countless headaches and delays in workplace productivity by fixing the problems yourself. Or, maybe you'll drag your spouse to the office to fix the computer problems for you. Then again, if you have remote IT access, then you don't even need to go into the office.

There are a number of applications, products, and solutions that offer remote desktop services at an enterprise level. To avoid HIPAA violations, make sure that your connections are secure and that the right level of encryption is available so that your patient records are protected.
