Cloud vs Server

It's better in the cloud

Stay with the old? – Client Server

  • Large upfront hardware costs
  • Large upfront installation fees
  • Upgrades & enhancements may be dependent on vendor updates and may require self-installation
  • 3-5 year hardware replacement schedule
  • Modular systems may increase costs
  • Additional IT support is needed to support hardware
  • Storage is limited on standard hardware
  • Physical security concerns with data on premises (natural disaster, access and theft)
  • Multiple locations and multiple databases are are difficult to manage and may require additional servers and hardware
  • Limited Mobility
  • There is increased potential for billing & coding errors due to having to maintain multiple versions
  • Possible interoperability issues with practice management systems
  • Training and setup time – the practice may need to close during this period
  • Building templates and macros requires a time investment
