So, instead of investing in a lot of new hardware and expensive software, many doctors are finding the answer to be as simple as a cloud.
Cloud computing, which offers a way to access quality software via the internet, is giving doctors another way to get the tools necessary to run a profitable practice without a huge investment in a hardware infrastructure. To help doctor’s operate more cost effectively, several applications including practice managements and electronic medical records are now offered in the cloud.
Cloud computing requires no expensive investment in hardware, no dedicated IT person to maintain the software and perform updates and most importantly-no software. Everything is provided online by the service provider, the doctor simply logs onto a website and in seconds is navigating a practice management system or electronic health record.
For a subscription fee, providers like CareCloud offer a customizable practice management system with all the features necessary to run a successful practice, including billing and collections, faster insurance claim processing and comprehensive financial reports but no hardware or installation necessary. CareCloud also helps doctors increase patient satisfaction with a patient portal that give patients access to patient scheduling and access to their electronic medical record.
