What is a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?

Glossary

A Managed Service Provider, or MSP, provides companies including hospitals and healthcare organizations with outsourced IT, infrastructure, networking, and application support. MSPs handle all aspects of temporary staffing, including recruiting, onboarding, payroll, and resource planning for the organization's IT staff. Contracting with an MSP allows health systems and hospitals to streamline the support of their technology stack. MSPs can support a company's entire IT infrastructure or a certain component of it

When Should You Use an MSP? 

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated staffing shortages at many organizations causing unacceptable disruptions for many groups. Hospitals, health systems, and practices struggle to hire enough staff to manage project volume. If your health system or large practice has difficulty filling IT positions, an MSP may be able to help. Contracting with an MSP will give you access to IT experts who can quickly get your business the help they need.

MSPs also make it easier to manage IT staff. A typical MSP will hire, onboard, manage, and pay ythe IT staff, lessening your administrative workload. MSPs also help with resource planning to ensure that your hospital or health system has the right team in the right roles at the right time.
