What Do Physicians Need to Know About the Cloud?

Does your healthcare office have a cloud strategy? If not, it’s time to think about it. In 2018, it has become more and more apparent that cloud-based storage is the best solution for healthcare providers. Harness the latest technologies to improve productivity and efficiency.

But how do you get started? First, partner with National Physicians Services. Unlike most IT providers, National Physician Services is a healthcare IT services company formed by physicians who set out to provide healthcare-specific IT services. Our sole purpose is to improve the delivery of healthcare through better information technology, applications, and managed support. That’s why our cloud hosting services are designed with your unique needs in mind.

Why have so many physicians’ offices migrated to the cloud? Simply put, the cloud is an incredible efficiency tool that empowers your workforce with secure access to what they need, when they need it. In essence, cloud computing is the practice of managing, storing, and processing your business data by utilizing a network of remote servers hosted online, rather than doing this locally. The benefits include: reduced energy costs from running less hardware, scalable and inexpensive storage, improved system performance and reduced downtime, and increased mobility and efficiency for providers and staff.

As you can see, from security to convenience, the cloud outperforms local storage solutions like in-house servers and computers. Even if you already have a cloud strategy, it is probably time to perform an assessment to ensure you are getting the most benefits from cloud services and using the solution best-suited for your industry.

With the ease of access the cloud creates comes a risk that your information could be accessed by the wrong individuals, especially if you have not taken every precaution to secure it.
