It’s a brand new year, and big changes are coming to the face of healthcare in 2013. You’ve likely been anticipating the changes given the rocky financial paths walked by the governmental decision makers over the last few years, but this year will likely have you feeling the effects even more drastically. Restructuring and extensive financial planning may be in your future, if it’s not already in your present.
Due to these changes, important projects may be being relegated to the back burner. This can include anything from putting off much-needed new hires to resolving to stick with the same outdated technology for another year. Unfortunately, staving off technology and software purchases may end up costing you even more — with the ICD-10 update scheduled for later this year, you can’t afford to hope the same old system will keep working for you until 2014. It’s never been more important to make sure your automation system is up to snuff.
There is a silver lining: you may still be able to update your interfacing and find the software that works for you for a price that won’t completely destroy your already-meager budget. Many LIS providers offer pre-packaged solutions for a pre-determined price, and that may not work for your budget or give you the coverage you need. At Comp Pro Med, we’re well-accustomed to flexibility and finding the right solution for most budgets. If you know you need to upgrade your automation systems but aren’t sure how to go about making it work, we’re here to help. We’ll put you on the line with someone right here in our home office and do our very best to find a solution we can both work with.
