Hey there, and welcome to the Nextech blog! Today we will be discussing how to protect your data and patient records.

The first step toward protecting this information is making sure it is organized and accessible when necessary, which is easy with the use of Nextech's practice management and EHR software.

However, you'll also need to consider your networks and devices. Train your staff on the importance of keeping passwords confidential, how to create a strong password, and how often to change them. Ensure your wireless network is protected by a strong password or PIN that is changed regularly. You can further protect your data against security breaches by not opening attachments or clicking on links from unknown emails and handling USB drives safely by only using new, straight-from-the-package devices.

By avoiding common healthcare IT security concerns and implementing solid policies in your practice, you can ensure you are doing your part to protect your data and patient records. Thanks for watching, and be sure to tune in next week!
