Remote work options for healthcare may not be just optional anymore.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced hospitals, health systems, and other provider groups, along with many other employers, to quickly shift staff from the in-office environment to a remote work environment. Most did this with little prep time and while still operating under traditional policies and work processes.

If there’s any hidden gem in this pandemic, it’s been the ability of employers to send employees home to work and the success of employees at remaining productive, under temporary conditions. So much so that many employers are now adjusting business plans to allow large numbers of employees to work remotely for the foreseeable future.

From policies to operational redesign.

Now that hospitals are learning how to improve policy design to best support a remote work environment, it’s time to focus on the operational changes necessary to support a more permanent remote environment.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Have we created a virtual environment that enables staff to create, store, and access important files?
  • Have we created a virtual environment that enables staff to access files that are only available in paper form or in one fixed location?
  • Have we created a virtual environment that enables quick retrieval of daily work files?
  • Have we created a virtual environment that is also compliant with regulatory or statutory requirements for storage?
  • Have we created a virtual environment that provides secure access to confidential files such as medical records, HR, finance & billing, credentialing, etc.?
  • Have we created a virtual process for no-contact access of daily mail?

If you didn’t answer yes to all, you may need more permanent solutions to empower employees to work from home.

Build your plan for the new norm.

Advanced Imaging Systems, a Solvent Networks endorsed partner, can be your partner to fully transition to remote work capability. Creating a plan to enable secure remote access to your critical business information also makes good business sense from the standpoint of HIPAA compliance, increasing staff efficiently, reclaiming valuable office space, while creating a disaster recovery plan for your organization’s most critical data.  Contact Richard Outz at AIS or the team at Solvent Networks to assess where you are in the transition to the new norm of conducting business.
