Information Technology

Multiple software platforms, electronic health records, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are but a few of the many reasons health care information technology is a growing source of your annual capital assets. Medical information is created, collected and accessed through multiple avenues and they must all work together.
