Gaining a Competitive Edge with IT Outsourcing

In Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), providing exceptional care to older adults is critical. Investing in IT outsourcing allows your organization to gain a competitive advantage that supports expansion and safeguards your systems.

Key Benefits of IT Outsourcing:

  • Comprehensive Compliance: Relying on a third-party IT provider ensures your systems are up-to-date with relevant regulations such as HIPAA. Annual security external vulnerability scans and risk assessments are conducted on your behalf, giving you peace of mind.
  • Robust Security Measures: Outsourced IT providers possess the expertise to efficiently counter malicious attacks and data breaches that threaten your organization. This includes implementing Endpoint Detection and Recovery (EDR) threat-hunting tools, a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, MFA (Multi-factor Authentication) Protection, critical security patches, etc.
  • Accessible Support: Partnering with a reliable IT service provider ensures you have access to their services seven days a week, including after-hours and weekends. This means issues that may arise are addressed promptly, reducing potential downtime.
  • Continuous Staff Training: An external IT service provider can offer your employees annual security and HIPAA training, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to keep your organization secure and compliant.  This includes ongoing Security Awareness Training and HIPAA/Security Newsletters sharing recent security concerns.
  • Broad Expertise: It's challenging for an internal team to understand every aspect of IT in your organization. Outsourcing to a third-party provider brings diverse skill sets and experiences.

By outsourcing your IT needs, you can rest assured that your organization is well-protected and your focus remains on providing top-quality care to your community's older adults. Confidence in your IT infrastructure and the ability to support your growing organization is vital to success in the competitive CCRC industry.
