Technology Requirements Outgrow Internal Capabilities
The technology, security, and direct messaging requirements for healthcare organizations are rapidly shifting. The advancement in regulations and reporting requirements make it difficult for many smaller healthcare organizations’ IT departments to handle the upgrades alone. Many departments don’t have the expertise, or time, to manage advanced compliance requirements. Through an already established relationship with HealtHIE Georgia, ER Hospital Group formed a partnership with SunLink Healthcare Technology to manage its comprehensive technology needs.
SunLink Integrates Advanced Healthcare Technology
Through a partnership with SunLink Healthcare Technology, ER Hospital Group now boasts integrated dashboards for its healthcare providers. Now, medical and administrative staff use custom dashboards and technologically sophisticated methods to manage medical records and send and receive data to and from Georgia Health Information Network (GaHIN). Because of the advancement in healthcare information access, providers can offer more streamlined care to patients.
