39 years of comprehensive orthopedic care, up to 50 simultaneous IT system users, one part-time IT professional, outsourced IT.
Lawrence-based OrthoKansas was suffocating under stacks and stacks of medical records. After 39 years of providing comprehensive orthopedic care to countless clients—including the collegiate athletes at the University of Kansas and Baker University—OrthoKansas’ paper-friendly team was forced to begin storing sensitive medical records in an off-site location. After a series of negative experiences with technology left OrthoKansas reluctant to try paperless storage solutions, the benefits of paper seemed to outweigh the drawbacks of storage and security risk. That is, until the new healthcare law required a transition to electronic medical records for all Medicare providers, like OrthoKansas, by 2014.
Pending regulations compounded with the resignation of OrthoKansas’ on-staff IT manager, sparking the management team to seek new IT options. After a short search, OrthoKansas elected NetStandard as its Clarity Managed Services provider.
