Healthcare IT: Why Medical Offices Should Be in the Cloud

In medical offices, manila folders used to be a mainstay for storing patient records, but documentation methods have gotten a modern upgrade over the past few years, with medical cloud computing transforming the way data is sent and stored. While you’re in for your annual check-up, don’t be surprised if the nurse treating you updates your charts on a tablet, your doctor order scripts on his smart phone, or the office staff retrieves all your past medical records with the click of a mouse. Cloud computing provides advanced healthcare IT support to help medical offices streamline their documentation processes while enhancing the security of confidential patient information.

Here’s why medical cloud computing is the cure-all for managing medical records:

The Best Antidote Healthcare IT support by way of the cloud allows medical offices to be truly paperless – except, of course, for the paper gowns you wear while waiting to be treated. Whether for non-clinical applications – patient billing, claims, revenue, scheduling, and the like – or medical purposes – electronic healthcare records (EHR), physician order entry, software imaging, and pharmaceutical use – the cloud can support all paperwork needs of medical offices. This simplified filing method and data storage makes medical offices more efficient in offering reliable patient care.

Safety First With legal obligations in place requiring medical offices to confidentially keep patient health information, thorough safety procedures are essential. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, legislated the need for firm security measures in patient record keeping. Outsourced and remote systems take every precaution to safeguard this information, with data centers working around the clock to ensure firewalls, hacker and virus defense, and protection against employee tampering are all in place. Information stored on the cloud is encrypted, too, making it illegible to potential unwanted infiltrators.

Reliability Medical cloud computing provides redundancy, with data stored in multiple locations on the cloud to help prevent loss from occurring. This means that the cloud as healthcare IT support ensures critical patient information will never go missing, making it possible for patients to be seen and treated efficiently and effectively, whether in critical condition or seeking non-emergency treatment.  With the ability to transmit authorized patient information from physician to physician, electronic healthcare records stored on the cloud makes it easy for doctors to prescribe effective care plans after consulting medical history and past treatment. Cetrom has over a decade of experience developing cloud computing solutions for medical offices and healthcare departments. With outsourced IT services and a system that operates on the cloud, medical offices can further maximize patient care, while still maintaining stringent levels of confidentiality.
