Like most other businesses, organizations in the healthcare industry rely on their IT infrastructure to perform many of their daily duties. However, unlike other businesses, the healthcare industry is subject to rigorous security regulations. At E-N Computers, we understand the unique IT challenges healthcare providers face. Let us provide the healthcare IT support your business needs.
Managed IT Services for Healthcare
Whether you work for a pharmaceutical company, biomedical research facility, or hospital, you need to be able to rely on your IT environment to provide your patients the best service you can offer. Not only that, but the solutions you use must also align with the strict regulations set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, navigating the complexities of HIPAA compliance can be difficult to do on your own.
As a healthcare IT MSP (managed service provider), we specialize in IT compliance. Our team has worked with various healthcare organizations to implement services that range from collaborative cloud solutions to electronic fax services. Through our IT assessments, cyber security services, and consultation, we ensure all of your solutions always remain HIPAA compliant.

Healthcare IT Consulting
Technology has completely changed healthcare for the better. Today’s medical facilities are high-tech operations that use the latest equipment and technologies to perform complicated tasks. However, with the merging of IT and healthcare comes the need for protective security measures. These measures have come in the form of HIPAA regulations.
This national standard is something all healthcare providers must follow to keep protected health information (PHI) secure. This is where a healthcare IT consultant can step in to help. At E-N Computers, our expert-level professionals can walk you through the requirements set by HIPAA. After performing an assessment on your infrastructure, we can also explain how your current IT infrastructure is simplifying or complicating your path to achieving compliance.
Once we familiarize ourselves with your infrastructure, we work closely with your team to implement HIPAA-compliant solutions that align with industry best practices. Our goal is to maximize the potential of your IT environment and keep you compliant, all while allowing you to focus on what’s most important—your patients.
Benefits to having a healthcare IT consultant by your side include:
We want to ensure you get the solutions your business needs, so our team actively listens to your needs before developing an IT strategy. This way you’ll be able to attain the best results.
Taking a cookie-cutter approach to IT will only result in mediocre results. Since every company is different, we tailor our solutions to perfectly match the solutions your organization needs.
Our mission is to go beyond our clients’ expectations, so we always strive to provide the best service possible. When you work with us, you know you’re getting quality solutions.
What Is Required for HIPAA Compliance?
There are certain steps that have to be followed in order to achieve HIPAA compliance. Our IT consultants can help you on this journey, but here’s a quick outline of what needs to be done:
- Self-Audits: This requires healthcare businesses to perform an annual audit to assess administrative, technical, and physical gaps in compliance.
- Remediation: Healthcare institutions must also have remediation strategies that will make them compliant after they find any gaps in compliance.
- Policy Development and Training: Policies that adhere to HIPAA standards must be developed and updated according to changes in regulation. Employees must also be trained in these policies.
- Documentation: All efforts taken to become compliant must be recorded.
- Vendor Management: If an entity shares PHI with any of their vendors in any way, all of those vendors must be documented to ensure PHI is handled securely and mitigate liability.
- Incident Management: If a data breach does occur, the organization must have a process to document the breach and alert patients that their information has been compromised.
