Making mass data storage in the cloud a reality

Glenn October 1, 2011 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Until recent years, cloud-based mass data storage was impractical because of prevailing internet connectivity speeds, and the lack of robust management options for remote storage and access to large amounts of data. Since most if not all companies had their primary IT infrastructure in-house, cloud-based storage required immense throughput and was considerably less responsive than local storage options. In addition, the cost of running a suitable data center meant that cloud storage was economically unviable for most common cases.

Glenn June 1, 2010 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

The complexity of our health care system has grown over the years making it more difficult for practitioners to stay informed about their patients health histories. Electronic Medical Records will help solve this problem. This method reduces the amount of paperwork involved in the process; while at the same time increasing access to these records by making them available electronically. EMR/EHR systems enable the practitioner to view a patient’s complete health event summary, historical reports and previous treatment records. This has resulted in an enormous gain in productivity in practices staffed with multiple physicians. The advantages are also evident in regard to patients with multiple aliments and in emergency medical situations.
