Let’s consider the main solution model categories in practice management and how to best accommodate workflow needs.
It’s not one-size-fits-all, so you need the right information to make the right decision for YOUR practice.
- Paper—Exactly as it sounds, all records are maintained in paper files. This can allow vulnerability to a number of risks, from theft or loss, to disasters such as flood or fire.
- On-Premise—Software is installed on a server in your office. This provides more efficiency than a paper system, but can be very expensive and it limits access to your data. Plus, it can still leave you vulnerable to theft and disaster, as well as computer viruses, hardware failure, required software updates, and dedicated staff for IT needs.
- Cloud-Hosted—3rd party hosting can alleviate many of the issues associated with paper-based operations or maintaining software in your office. Vulnerabilities are reduced, but this option can still be expensive depending on the solution.
- Software-as-a-Service—Monthly subscription-based solutions can provide a highly economical and efficient means of practice management, and allow flexibility to access patient records anywhere, at any time, from any device.
In upcoming posts, we’ll take a more in-depth look at each of the models outlined above, so stay tuned.
