TIPS FOR THE TECH-SAVVY TRAVELER How to Keep Your Data Safe No Matter Where You Are
On the day before you depart, take a moment to update all of your apps and programs so you’ll have all of the latest security patches equipped. While you’re at it, pack two chargers and maybe an extra battery pack just in case. WHEN YOU’RE GONE Be mindful that scammers love to create dubious, free Wi-Fi networks in airports and densely frequented tourist areas. Unless you absolutely must, avoid using any free public Wi-Fi that is not password protected. If you need to use it, do not access any sensitive personal data on it. Similarly, avoid those USB ports at the airport; they may be tampered with to include information-stealing devices. See? We knew that battery pack would come in handy. In addition to making sure your technology stays safe, you need to be safe while using it. For road trips, invest in a hands-free device for calls and GPS directions. A smart phone can be tremendously useful while traveling, but it shouldn’t be overly distracting. After all, the whole joy of visiting a new place is getting to experience it with your own eyes rather than through a screen. Need Support? Call 480-497-7480 if you have a support contract.

One of the benefits of modern technology is its ability to allow us to bring vital information everywhere we go. Turning that promise into a reality, however, isn’t as simple as putting your phone in your pocket and heading off to your destination. When traveling, you need to take extra care to ensure your dream getaway doesn’t turn into a data- theft nightmare. Here are a few tips for keeping your information safe while traveling. BEFORE YOU LEAVE It’s important to prepare a pretravel checklist for your devices, not unlike the packing list you make for clothes and toiletries. The first step is to back up all of the essential information on any device you’ll take with you. That way, losing a phone won’t be akin to losing all of your data. You’ll also want to alert your bank of any international travel and look into international data plans if you’re traveling internationally.
SPOTLIGHT ON CINDY BAKER OF MRI NOW
There is no greater compliment we can receive than kind words from our valued customers. We recently sat down with Cindy Baker of MRI Now in New Braunfels, Texas, to discuss her experience working with AZCOMP for Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) service. “I originally started looking at AZCOMP as a training tool for myself on Medisoft,” Cindy says. “I quickly became familiar with Stacey and the team and was hooked. They were so helpful and really heard everything I was saying.
That was very reassuring.” After her initial good experience, Cindy decided to expand her relationship with AZCOMP to include RCM.
“Honestly, there was not really a billing process in place,” Cindy says of her time before AZCOMP. “Not one that worked anyway. I took over quite a mess, and, thanks to AZCOMP and EMDS, we’ve made a huge change. Now the process flows, and I know where we are and how we are doing.” We love working with customers like Cindy to make independent practices more efficient and secure. Thank you, Cindy and MRI Now.
