How Managed Service Providers (MSPs) Define Our Future, Especially for Healthcare
MSPs for the Healthcare industry–a perfect compliment.
It’s not like Managed Service Providers or MSPs for the Healthcare Industry are something new — they’ve been around since the 1990s, first referred to as ASPs (application service providers). Evolving considerably from remote monitoring and server management, we can now rely on MSPs to help make a greater impact on our businesses.
The capabilities of these experts that our IT infrastructure so heavily depends upon have been proven to improve operations, save companies money and redefine staffing by streamlining processes within companies across many industries—specifically healthcare.
Healthcare’s natural tendency for change is reason enough for an MSP (Managed Services Provider).
The healthcare industry is rapidly growing and transitional, constantly undergoing regulation changes and adapting to new compliances.
There is an ongoing need to efficiently manage nurse turnover, staff new talent and protect patients’ information. These struggles, alone, should give MSPs incentive to target healthcare.
Healthcare companies are feeling pressured to provide excellent quality at a lower cost and deal with unprecedented levels of compliance and governing factors. Not only this, but HIPAA requirements have tightened up data security, causing companies to restructure their system security and fine-tune methods for safeguarding patients’ information.
Plus, Americans simply need more care with an MSP.
In addition to internal factors driving this need, people are becoming more dependent on healthcare services. Baby boomers, the second-largest age group in the U.S., are aging, needing health care more than ever.
The growing trend of health and fitness are bringing more people in for routine check-ups. Some organizations have implemented health rewards programs, incentivizing employees to take better care of their health, which, in turn, positively impacts the healthcare provider.
MSPs are savvy to this highly profitable market–the healthcare industry.
There’s already been a lot of talk in the news about MSPs targeting healthcare, becoming HIPAA trained and compliant to gain a leg up in the race.
And as long as managed service providers continue to stay abreast of the changes in the healthcare industry, they’ll remain a sought-after solution.
With MSPs taking on a huge role in managing security, operations and IT, organization’s infrastructure is bound to change, and for the better—minimizing costs, hiring the best talent and automating processes. Seems like a utopia—yet one that’s certainly attainable.
