DGL Practice Manager cloud-hosted edition provides secure access to your practice data from anywhere with internet access.
It’s called “cloud hosted”, and as the name suggests, we “host” both your data and your DGL Practice Manager system on our secure servers. Replacing the traditional restrictive model of storing all of your data/programmes locally. Many businesses have already begun moving to cloud solutions, but, there are still some that remain hesitant about taking those first few steps. We’d like to take a few minutes and share with you 6 real business advantages of using our cloud-hosted edition of DGL Practice Manager.
1. Improved Flexibility
Firstly, with our hosted solution, you can work from anywhere. If you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. DGL Practice Manager harnesses the power of the internet to provide you with secure live access to our software, wherever you are and whenever you want. This is ideal for when staff are required to work remotely, adverse weather hits, holiday leave or maternity cover. Users can work from home and have access from multiple clinics etc.
2. Increased Collaboration
When your team can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together and do it better. Diaries, notes, clinical details, letters, etc., can all be shared by multiple users and updated in realtime, giving you complete control and access whenever you need it. Our professional IT team is at hand to look after all the related technical aspects, upgrades, licensing, virus protection and backups that you’ll need.
Additional users can be added easily without having to invest in expensive hardware infrastructure or having to transfer data from one PC to another. Reduced ongoing maintenance costs – No need for your own dedicated servers, specialist security, expensive hardware or operating system maintenance as this is all managed by the DGL Practice Manager team.
You can access Practice Manager from a Mac, pocket PC, laptop, desktop, or Linux based system as long as you have an internet connection.
5. Cost Savings
Once you’re on the cloud, easy access to your company’s data will save you time and money. All that’s required to access DGL Practice Manager is an internet connection and a subscription to DGL Practice Manager’s hosted service, thereby prolonging the life of existing computer systems with our servers doing all the hard work and processing. No third party licensing costs or upgrades as all licences are supplied by DGL Practice Manager (For software hosted on DGL’s Servers including MS Word, Virus protection software etc.).
6. Data Security
Security is often a concern when considering cloud-based solutions. Especially in Healthcare, where the protection of sensitive patient data is so important. Customers access DGL over the internet using a secure key fob (incorporating RSA patented time synchronisation technology as used by many banks and large corporate organisations). In fact, DGL Practice Manger’s hosted solutions are more secure than your own PC or laptop with backups, firewalls etc.
Any two or three of the benefits mentioned would be enough to convince most to move over to a hosted solution. But when you think about all six? It’s approaching no-brainer territory.
