By now offering the ability for chiropractors to both store and protect data offsite through its new CTSecure service, ChiroTouch has added to its “turnkey” approach of providing software solutions to chiropractic practices.
“Our customers are all made fully aware of the need to have a software that provides the opportunity for data backup,” says Robert Moberg, president and COO of ChiroTouch. “But we and they recognize that daily in-office; data-saving procedures sometimes can be forgotten, given the principal demand for patient care. CTSecure automatically backs up all of the doctor’s patient records and business data; including SQL, Exchange, QuickBooks, x-rays, forms and more into a state-of-the-art, highly secure offsite data storage center.”
CTSecure installation takes about 24 to 48 hours after contacting ChiroTouch, says Moberg. The system is automatically self-updating and successful backups are closely monitored by ChiroTouch.
CTSecure is charged on a per gigabyte (GB) basis, starting at $11.95 a month. ChiroTouch’s experience is that most DCs use about seven to11GBs, but ChiroTouch has some clients storing up to 50 to 80 GBs, according to Moberg.
“CTSecure, like all of the ChiroTouch software products for chiropractic practices, complies with the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will be compatible the new electronic health records (EHR) regulations and standards that President Obama’s Administration is in the process of implementing,” says Moberg.
ChiroTouch is based in San Diego, which is a major reason Moberg joined the company two years ago.
“I helped take Petco, also a San Diego-based firm, through a successful initial public offering (IPO), and the field of healthcare and wellness attracted me because it offers similar growth, consolidation, and IPO opportunities.”
