You Need a Cloud-Based Solution
Why You Need a Cloud-Based Solution for Your Chiropractic Practice
With a cloud-based system, there is no hardware or software to install. You aren’t responsible for data storage, backup or even security.
If you’ve been searching for a new Chiropractic EHR software and practice management software to boost the success of your practice, you know that you have two options – a cloud-based or a client server EHR. And, while each option can help you run your practice more efficiently than the old pen and paper days, a cloud-based system offers advantages that just can’t be ignored. Let’s take a look.
Cloud-based or web-based software is often referred to as “software as a service” (or SaaS). That’s because with this type of system, your software is hosted in the ‘cloud’, so you have no need to install, update or maintain the software. You simply access it via the internet from any internet connected computer or device. This is a big advantage over a client-server system where you are in charge of maintaining everything on local servers in your own data center.
With a cloud-based system, there is no hardware or software to install. You aren’t responsible for data storage, backup or even security. All of those things are handled by your software provider – so that there are no more headaches to deal with as with server-based software.
For a monthly fee, you are able to do everything you need to run your office optimally like scheduling, billing, handling claims and accessing patient data. With a cloud-based EHR, you can access the data from any location with Internet access, 24/7/365 – whether you’re at the office, at home or even on vacation. This means data sharing and collaboration amongst your team will be much easier. In terms of personnel, you won’t need to allocate a full-time IT person for server maintenance.
You may be wondering about security when it comes to a cloud-based system. However, web-based EHR systems achieve HIPAA compliance through data centers with bank-level security and high-level encryption methods that render data unreadable — even if a security breach occurs.
Running a client-server setup means you always face the risk that your data will be stolen or even destroyed since client-server systems are often left unencrypted and only as secure as the room where they are stored. On the other hand, a cloud-based EHR’s data will be impossible to destroy, since there will always be multiple, redundant backups safely kept in distant locations.
