- Fragmented Systems: PACT Atlanta operated on disparate legacy systems, resulting in inefficient workflows, duplicated data entry, and a lack of real-time information access.
- Compliance and Security Concerns: The organization needed to ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations and strengthen its cybersecurity posture to protect sensitive patient information.
- Lack of Scalability: The existing IT infrastructure posed limitations in scalability, hindering the organization’s ability to adapt to future growth and technological advancements.
- Outdated EHR Platform: The current EHR system did not fully meet the evolving needs of the organization, and customization options were limited.
“The people at Boost IT are interactive problem solvers and keep us properly informed. They operate under the highest level of integrity, making it very easy to trust them with our extremely sensitive patient data. I also appreciate that they are very mindful of our budget but never take shortcuts in the quality of service they provide.”

1. IT Infrastructure Assessment
Our team conducted a comprehensive assessment of PACT Atlanta’s existing IT infrastructure. This included an analysis of hardware, software, network architecture, and data management practices. The findings were used to develop a tailored IT strategy aligned with the organization’s goals.
2. Electronic Health Records (EHR) Migration & Implementation
A modern, customized EHR system was designed and implemented to streamline clinical workflows, enhance data accuracy, and improve patient care. The new EHR platform integrated seamlessly with existing systems, ensuring minimal disruption to daily operations.

3. Project Management
Boost IT transitioned to a new server, network and phone system on a flexible schedule during the weekend. They worked with 3rd party software vendors directly and managed regular upgrades for EMR and PM medical software and security features that included anti-virus, anti-malware and a robust firewall. We managed it all for them.
4. Cybersecurity Enhancement
A thorough cybersecurity assessment was conducted, identifying vulnerabilities and risks. We implemented robust security measures, including multi-factor authentication, encryption protocols, and regular security audits. Employee training programs were also established to promote a culture of security awareness.
5. Secure Remote Access
PACT Atlanta works with a team of office personnel, medical providers and software company representatives. Much of the team accesses the network remotely and needs secure authorized access.
In coordinating activities in a fast-paced environment, Boost IT worked with each individual or vendor to accommodate access, security and upgrade needs. We paid attention to the details and were very conscientious of PACT Atlanta’s requirements. We ensured everyone who needed access had access with remote options.
