"We were pleasantly surprised that our performance running GE Centricity is much faster now through the cloud than it was on our local server," said Liza Altman, administrator and office manager for Advanced Arthritis Care and Research.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
ClearDATA Networks, Inc., the leading healthcare cloud computing platform and service provider, today announced that Advanced Arthritis Care and Research (AACR), a Medical Group Practice located in Scottsdale, AZ is hosting its EMR software on the ClearDATA Private Cloud at the company’s datacenter. AACR needed to upgrade its EMR software to be compatible with a new billing system, but the upgrade would have taken 2.5 months and required a new server for more than $30,000, plus monthly support and maintenance fees. After researching its options, AACR decided to have both its EMR and billing software hosted at the ClearDATA data center, which took less than one week for the entire implementation to be up and running efficiently.
Private cloud hosting of EMR software is one of the fastest growing trends in healthcare due to the significant costs associated with increased server and storage requirements, along with monthly maintenance and support fees. ClearDATA is targeting its secure, HIPAA–compliant EMR Cloud Hosting Service to small-to-large healthcare practices across the country and has performed successful implementations with software from most of the major EMR vendors.
“EMR Cloud Hosting is an area of tremendous growth for ClearDATA,” said David Bean, executive vice president of sales and marketing, ClearDATA Networks, Inc. “Healthcare providers are increasingly moving their EMR and EHR software to the cloud because of the significant savings in hardware expenses and support, eliminating the need for multiple servers and substantial storage. And due to increased market demand, EMR software companies are partnering with us to cloud enable their software as well as hosting their EMR solutions on our ClearDATA Cloud Computing Platform.”
“After multiple phone calls with ClearDATA over the course of several days and even visiting their data center, I felt very confident in going with a cloud hosted solution,” said Liza Altman, administrator and office manager for Advanced Arthritis Care and Research. “I actually feel more secure with their hosted solution than having the data in our office. Also, we were pleasantly surprised that our performance running GE Centricity is much faster now through the cloud than it was on our local server, and the system has never been down.”
