Long Island City, NY, February 13, 2012 -- Morris Stemp, CPA, MBA, CPHIMS, and CEO of Stemp Systems Group, Inc., published his first of a series of technology articles for Dermatology world, a publication of the American Academy of Dermatology. After hearing Morris speak about "Technology considerations in implementing EHR" at the AAD conference in NYC, AAD asked Morris to be a contributing columnist on subjects related to healthcare technology in their monthly publication.
Stemp's first article focuses on "Crisis Management" related specifically to planning for a systems crash in key clinical or operational systems that would adversely affect the smooth and effective delivery of vital patient services. In addition to discussing crisis management, a sidebar to this article addresses specific issues related to creating a backup strategy. Future articles are planned including "Interoperability of EHR with other practices and hospitals" and "Photo Storage – options dermatologists have for accessing photos in their records."
Mr. Stemp is the author of the book The EHR Guru, a parable about implementing an EHR system. Once an EHR implementation is complete, it is critical that the systems are backed up and the data protected. Through this Technically Speaking column, the Guru himself shares more of his expertise with his readers. The crisis management article and the accompanying backup sidebar address these next steps.
Morris Stemp earned the designation of Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CPHIMS) in 2010 by passing a rigorous set of eligibility requirements and a certification test developed and administered by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). This certification demonstrates his knowledge to provide the highest level of technology expertise to healthcare organizations. He joined an elite group of only 1500 certified IT professionals worldwide to earn this certification.
