AT&T Business is ideally positioned to meet the industry's unique needs, helping you care for your patients and run your hospital, clinic or office more efficiently and effectively.
The healthcare industry is undergoing profound and fundamental changes. Controlling costs without sacrificing quality of outcomes is a challenge for every provider. Healthcare represents one-seventh of the national economy. This fact underscores the importance of making choices that are efficient and beneficial to everyone involved.
Healthcare is facing one of the most challenging tasks of the new decade as they prepare to comply with the new regulations of the health Insurance Portability ACT (HIPAA). Healthcare organizations must begin adopting national standards for electronic transactions such as claims submission, eligibility, verification and referral authorization, as well as privacy and security regulations. The intent of HIPAA is to drive down operational costs and streamline how administrative and financial information about patients is shared by utilizing information technology.
As healthcare providers and payors prepare for this transformation, they are also evaluating strategic business and eHealth initiatives. Healthcare Internet commerce is expected to reach $370 billion by 2004, organized around a healthcare eBusiness network that serves consumers, providers, distribution chains and payors. As the healthcare industry adopts the techniques of the digital age as standard business practice, patients, providers and payors are becoming more reliant on robust voice and data networks that are secure and always available.
