Welcome to EHR Security, a computer resource for your busy medical office. If you’re looking to improve the performance and safety of your medical office computer systems, you have come to the right place.
The purpose of this site is not an attempt to solve all of your computer problems, but rather to teach you and your staff how to implement common sense ideas to avoid bigger problems. Think about how much time is lost in your office by viruses, slow computers, lost passwords, slow internet speeds etc. What if you could improve the overall performance and efficiency of your office by doing simple things? Sometimes these things cost money, but let’s face it, most of the time you’ve already spent money on things you don’t know how to use.
For many years I have been involved with helping physicians with their medical practice software. I have seen firsthand in a busy medical office just how often things can go wrong. Data gets lost, backup systems don’t get monitored, computers get infected with whatever, and staff don’t know what to do or who to call. During that time I have often thought about how helpful it might be if someone created a resource for medical staff to obtain simple easy-to-follow ideas on how to keep their computers running safe and efficient.
So let’s get started, and by the way, feel free to submit your own ideas here.
