Alright, we have all heard the hype about he cloud. It’s supposed to solve all of our problems, make us more efficient, and ultimately make us more money. But these promises aren’t just high-tech marketing plugs. Using the cloud for your practice management and EHR software has tangible results. Here are three.
#1 You get the latest & greatest, always
Secure, anytime, remote access to your practice and patient system from anywhere you have internet access – home, hospital, remote clinic, or from the road – using a Smartphone, iPad, tablet or laptop.
- Keep pace with regulatory changes. The latest updates to the medical codes and rules are automatically uploaded to your billing suite, so you can reduce the rate of claim rejections due to inaccurate or incomplete coding.
- Receive frequent & smooth software updates. A cloud platform reduces the number of unknowns, as it is the unknowns about a specific system configuration that can cause problems during an upgrade. In a cloud environment everything is under the control of the technology provider’s development team – the software is developed and tested against a system that matches the production system. The provider of a cloud software system owns all the pieces – software, hardware and network reliability.
#2 Across town seems down the hall
Cloud software for private practices centralizes management of multi-site and multi-provider practices. You get one unified medical practice software system that handles everything for all physicians and locations:
- Claim preparation
- Insurance verification
- Patient health records (EHR)
To sweeten the deal, billing can start immediately after physicians sign off on charges – no more hunting down charge slips, calling other locations, or tedious double entry. Quickly review colleagues notes and schedules from anywhere with a secure Internet connection.
#3 Your patients and practice is better protected
Leading cloud software backs up and stores data in enterprise-class operation centers, automatically. What this means for you: no more expensive, time-consuming manual backups.
Don’t leave your practice to chance in the event of a natural disaster or unexpected downtime. The cloud allows you to access patient data to get things up and running as soon as possible.
These three perks are just the beginning. To see why things are just better on the cloud, including mobile solutions no physician should live without, download our exclusive guide.
