Healthcare organizations need skilled partners.
Healthcare organizations need skilled partners that offer strategic thinking, proven industry experience, and strong IT competencies to effectively respond to the evolution of the healthcare industry.
Protecting patient privacy and security has become a top concern in response to regulatory actions such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), and the EMR Electronic Medical Records Mandate. For almost 20 years, LMT has helped local and regional private practices, nursing homes, assisted care facilities, dental clinics, and practices improve their model for delivering care and optimize their IT environments. These organizations have been able to meet security requirements while also limiting the frustrating slowdowns often faced with increased controls.
A Nursing Home struggled with complying with the Federal EMR Electronic Medical Records Mandate within the deadline. Several financial incentives were attached to this initiative, as well as potential penalties for non‐compliance.
While consulting on the overall strategy and implementation, LMT contributed with critical project assistance; EMR vendor selection, upgrade of the network infrastructure to support an EMR SaaS [Software As A Service] solution, installation of a campus wide wireless network and upgrade of all network switch devices. LMT also assisted with hardware selection and implementation of Kiosk, Medical Cart tablets and PC hardware.
Client was one of the first Nursing Homes in Rochester to comply fully with all of the EMR mandates, on‐time and on budget. This enabled a streamlined point of care process and they could electronically process all of the refill prescriptions in 50% less time.
One of the largest Dental organizations in the region had aging hardware that needed to be replaced in order to solve many of their user issues. This caused lost productivity, frustration amongst the employees, and poor customer service. LMT proposed a solution which would have resolved these concerns but the client decided to stay with its current vendor and solution for budgetary reasons.
After several attempts to go with a "cheaper solution", the client re‐engaged LMT to implement our solution which entailed installing a terminal server. This would allow them to use their existing hardware as dummy terminals, vastly increasing the hardware lifespan and reducing costs. With this solution, failed pc’s could be easily replaced by thin clients which are half the cost and use significantly less energy.
The client saved 23% in overall costs over the next two years, but more importantly, solved everyday challenges that led to workforce inefficiency. Their staff could now rely on functional and reliable workstations which resulted in improved productivity and better customer service.
