Microsoft has announced that they will end support for SQL Server 2008 and R2 after today. This means no more updates, including security updates. If you are a homecare agency, this means it is critical that you migrate now to a newer version or to the cloud because your system is no longer HIPAA compliant and could put you at risk for data breaches.
While you can upgrade to a newer version of SQL Server, the expense, energy and effort to do that can be far more than you were expecting. For this reason, many healthcare agencies are migrating their databases to the cloud. It’s not only a less expensive and less daunting option, but it helps to ensure your agency’s data is protected. Most clouds like Microsoft Azure are HIPAA and HITRUST certified. HITRUST is one of the highest security certifications and ensures that your agency’s data is compliant with HIPAA regulations.
Securing your data is more important than ever and should be part of any disaster recovery plan. We here at HealthWare can help make sure your data is secure and protect you from potential threats. Contact today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming off the heels of the COPs and PDGM less than 8 months away, proper medication management is more important than ever. Accurate details and education will improve patient safety and reduce hospitilizations. But this information is not always easily coordinated.
Join us Wednesday June 12th for our next webinar where we'll review overcoming some of the common obstacles that will help improve patient homecare overall.
We’ll have our newest partner, PEPID joining in to share details on their fully integrated drug interactions checker, available even at the HealthWare point of care! Learn in this webinar how this dynamic combination of software vendors can take your patient care to the next level.
