Change isn’t easy, and it can be disruptive, especially if you aren’t prepared for it.
The word cloud likely forms an image in your mind of something nebulous and amorphous – not exactly an image you normally associate with your practice of medicine or your most mission-critical systems. Yet, you’ve likely heard a lot about “the cloud” and cloud-based electronic medical record (EMR) systems, or perhaps you’re contemplating implementing one in your practice.
It may seem that there’s more hype than clarity when it comes to understanding a truly cloud-based EMR system and how it compares to the alternatives, so it’s vital to ascertain the differences between cloud-based and traditional client-server EMR systems. Know how to sort truth from myth surrounding cloud solutions, and learn what questions to ask – and answers you should expect – when selecting a cloud-based EMR system and vendor.
To help address the complexities of cloud computing, Modernizing Medicine has written the white paper “Clearing Up the Cloud Haze.” Subject matter includes:
- What is Cloud Computing?
- Types of Cloud Computing
- Cloud versus Client-Server-based EMR Systems
- Solid Reasons Physicians Are Selecting Cloud-based EMR Systems
- Myths about Cloud-based EMR Systems
- Questions You Should Ask Cloud-based EMR Vendors
