Outsourcing Information Systems
Statistics show that the top issues businesses face today are managing growth, ensuring Cyber Security and finding qualified IT employees. And though it might not seem apparent, these three challenges are often interrelated. The healthcare sector is set to expand significantly over the next decades, and organizations are relying more and more on technology to operate efficiently. As a result, it’s critical to have qualified and experienced IT personnel who can manage your growing network and ensure it’s protected against cyber threats.
If you don’t outsource your IT management function, you could very well run into a number of issues that could compromise the efficiency and security of your operations.
One of the most critical of these issues is the fact that you need to allocate sufficient funds to maintain an in-house IT team that’s large and competent enough to meet all your organization’s needs. Depending on the size of your organization, you could be looking at adding anywhere from two to 20 employees solely for IT management.
At the same time, you also need to ensure you have the right hardware and software to meet your organization’s demands — yet this is easier said than done. With the overwhelming amount of computer and systems manufacturers — as well as software developers — in the market today, it can be extremely challenging to know which items and software services you need to acquire. Nevertheless, since budgeting is always critical, you can’t afford to make a mistake with this type of capital investment.
Fortunately, outsourcing your IT management function to Prelude Services is a strategic business decision that can help keep your network running smoothly and securely.
Count on Prelude for Cost-Effective Outsourced IT Management Solutions
As one of the leading IT management companies in PA, Prelude’s outsourcing services offer your business a way to control operating costs. The reason for this is because you won’t need to expand your workforce with one or more in-house IT professionals, who are currently in high demand and command high salaries. Instead, you simply enter into the service level agreement that works for your organization’s needs and budget.
So, what exactly are the reasons for outsourcing information systems? One of the most important aspects is efficiency. With a dedicated IT management service like Prelude Services, you can always rely on fast and knowledgeable support for any issues or problems you might encounter. Whether it’s a network that’s not functioning quickly enough or a cybersecurity problem that threatens your entire operation, our expert staff are always here to help.
But that’s just one of the many advantages — outsourcing information systems can also be more cost-effective, since you don’t have to employ full-time IT personnel in-house. Instead, you benefit from right-sized service at precisely the level you need it to effectively operate your organization.
In addition, healthcare IT outsourcing also provides you with access to qualified technical resources that are costly and difficult to find. Usually, an in-house IT team relies on the organization to provide continued education. For many healthcare organizations, other issues can understandably take priority. Unfortunately, this can mean their networks and systems don’t benefit from the latest IT developments, which can be critical when it comes to efficiency and security.
By outsourcing your IT management to Prelude Services, you can rest assured the team managing your network and system is always up to date on the very latest technologies, software and hardware — and that they will leverage their expertise to keep your network and systems secure and operating correctly. Whether it’s about the latest developments in cloud computing or a critical cybersecurity concern, our highly-trained professionals are always informed — and they put their knowledge to work for you.
Moreover, outsourcing allows you to improve your focus by having one less management concern. When you entrust us with IT management for your medical records, system and network, we assume all responsibility for our services — and we take our responsibility very seriously. That way, your time and energy are freed up to focus on your primary responsibilities.
Finally, we can advise you on the best software and hardware for your organization’s needs and budget. Since we work with IT systems every day, we’re uniquely positioned to help you assess which manufacturers and software developers offer the best products for your operations.
Simply assuming that the least expensive option is the best solution — or, in contrast, the most expensive option — isn’t always wise. That’s because when it comes to IT management, you have to balance the requirements of your organization with the capabilities and features offered by the equipment and programs.
For example, if you run heavy workloads on your computers, you might prefer more powerful processors than you currently have, so your system works quickly and seamlessly. Or, if you’re thinking about establishing a patient portal to interact better with your patients, it’s important to understand all of the features the different options offer.
IT Management Services
Prelude’s outsourcing services include the management and support of an organization’s IT function, requiring no internal support staff at the organization itself. Our highly trained and experienced IT professionals handle everything having to do with your network and systems, ensuring you never have to worry about acquiring in-house IT personnel. This solution is best suited to organizations that need comprehensive, hands-on IT management services in PA.
Remote IT Management Support
We also offer a remote service option where our knowledgeable Prelude technicians are still responsible for managing IT infrastructure, but local desktop staff supports hardware and software installed in your facilities. This service option is better suited to organizations that have a capable IT staff but need additional, expert support when it comes to management, or for organizations whose IT departments are too small to handle all of their IT needs.
With both forms of outsourcing services, Prelude provides all server hardware and software, which are located in our data centers. This adds the extra benefit of giving you more space than if you had to maintain a server room — as well as all the HVAC and security concerns that come along with that. Moreover, we’re responsible for ensuring the hardware and software is in good working order and up to date, which helps you save even more.
At Prelude Services, we’re dedicated to providing you with trustworthy, top-quality IT management support that enables you to focus on what matters most: your daily operations of providing quality healthcare for those who need it.
