Get started with clinic security

Protecting patient information is a complex topic and the Doctors Technology Office (DTO) is here to help. Every physician has a role to play in establishing a culture of privacy and security among their clinic teams. 

Knowing where and how to start can feel overwhelming. Below you will find information to help clinics incorporate safeguards into workflows and ensure reasonable steps have been taken to protect patient information.

Our health technology team also provides coaching and guidance to help practices put these steps into action. To get connected to our health technology team or to request more information, reach us at .
