Doctors and Physicians are Moving Their Offices to the Cloud

doctors and physicians are moving their offices to the cloud

Doctors are implementing cloud based solutions to manage their offices, improve communication, store sensitive patient information safe and securely. Moving to the cloud has proved to be cost effective and has shown an increase in productivity for the small to medium size medical service providers than are utilizing it.

Using the cloud based CRM or customer relationship management software iceCRM, physicians offices have billing and scheduling solutions that can be accessed from any computer or mobile device. Patient’s records are stored in a centralized location making them available at all office locations. With cloud solutions, recovering from a computer crash can be done in a fraction of the time!

Mobilized open source solutions like Zarafa allow doctors to improve communication through email and calendars making it much easier to collaborate. Zarafa has proven to be more cost effective with better security than Microsoft Outlook.

Using a cloud storage solution such as ASK4Cloud, secured access to medical records, notes, test results, cardiology and radiology images, and other sensitive data is provided for the staff at all times, with the data backing up in real time.

If you are a doctor or office manager you may be using cloud based tools already such as, Dropbox or Google Drive to store your office files. As a medical service provider a private cloud storage solution that has been approved for sensitive data such as patient records should be considered. Currently there are only a few solutions available in the market today that meet these requirements. ASK4Cloud ensures patient privacy and provides the highest form of encryption available today.

Cloud Drive for Businesses

cloud drive for businesses

More and more businesses are getting on board with the cloud and there’s no mistake that it’s a great idea. The cloud is lowering IT costs, increasing productivity, and broadening the range of the workplace. We are now using Internet-based software that can be accessed from home, a smart phone or tablet, or virtually anywhere an Internet connection is available. The idea of BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is in motion and companies are encouraging employees to work from any device they can.

Remember when you used to dream of sitting on the beach with a laptop and a cool drink, or the day you woke up and thought you’d just love to work from your bed in your PJs?

This is an exciting new era in business where this is totally possible. But like any new technology there is always risks involved, and some love to dive in without testing the waters first, so we want to let you know that not all cloud drives are equal, and from a business perspective the public free storage services are just not good enough.

The move to the cloud has led to an increase in the desire for flexibility, productivity, and mobility. Files need to be available across all devices, platforms, and applications. Without this fluidity backing up to the cloud becomes difficult and confusing. Cloud drive provider Dropbox only backs up data that is in your designated “Sync Folder”. If you’ve got all your files organized in one folder, that’s great. But chances are you have multiple folders across multiple drives that you would like to backup. And I am sure that you would prefer those files to be secured and well encrypted. Cloud drive provider Google Drive does not encrypt your files upon upload, you would have to do it yourself ahead of time.

Did you know that your Google Drive data belongs to Google?

Google’s privacy policy states that:

When you upload or submit content to [Google] services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, communicate, publish, publicly perform and distribute such content.

We are pretty certain that any company with sensitive data doesn’t want to use a cloud drive with those terms. So what is the answer for businesses looking for privately owned cloud drive services that allow multiple folder backup and file encryption?

Automatic Online Backup: How can the cloud help keep my data safe and secured?


For those of you who still don’t know, the term cloud computing can mean many things. The easiest way to describe it would be as a group of services that are available to you whenever and wherever an Internet connection is available.

An online backup refers to one of these cloud services that lets you take a copy of your personal files from your PC, Mac, or mobile device and store it in another secure location in “the cloud”. The benefit of this is two-fold. One so that you can access these files from any location with an Internet connection, and two so that in the event that your system fails your files remain safe.

Backing up has been a process that many home users and small business have always dreaded. Until now it has been confusing, and probably has left you wondering what files to back up, what media to put it on? You no longer need CD/DVDs, flash drives that get lost, external hard drives that are slow and fail; you have the cloud!

A quick setup ensures that all your data is backed up, and can be restored in no time in the event of a disaster. You can chose to back up in real time, or you can set automatic online backup in which, once selected, regularly and automatically backs up that data without any further user interaction.

Backing up has never been easier thanks to the cloud, and now AE Technology Group can integrate cloud solutions for you.

Disaster Prevention: How Can the Cloud Prevent an IT Disaster?

If you or someone you know has a small or medium sized business (SMB) that was affected by recent natural disasters then there was probably a period of time that the business was inoperable; without power, internet access, or a combination of the two.

AE Technology Group has developed new creative, cost-effective solutions to ensure that even if you have no electricity or internet on location, files and software can be still be accessed from another location to keep business flowing.

If losing your power and Internet access was the only issue, you may be considered one of the luckier ones. Many local businesses who have not yet come to bring their networks to the sky lost hardware, software, and data to floods and power surges. With cloud computing and disaster recovery this is no longer an issue, as the data is always available to you, safe and secure in another location with multiple backups and power generators.

Cloud computing is the future of computing, and you won’t want to be left behind. It will allow your business to easily grow and integrate as it expands, allowing you to do business on a global scale.

Reasons to Consider Cloud Computing, Cloud Hosting, and Cloud Servers:

  • No infrastructure
  • On-demand from any location
  • Intuitive and easier to implement
  • No software to download
  • Secure, reliable backup
  • Increased productivity
  • Easy collaboration

AE Technology Group provides common data solutions and business applications that are online and accessed from a web browser. Users do not need to have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the cloud server or cloud hosting technology. The company’s or user’s software and data are stored and hosted on our servers. SaaS or cloud computing lowers your IT costs, is easier to deploy, more intuitive, and provides greater data security than most client-installed applications.

SaaS: Cloud Hosted Applications

Short for Software as a Service, SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service. SaaS allows organizations to access business functionality at a cost typically less than paying for licensed applications since SaaS pricing is based on a monthly fee. Also, because the software is hosted remotely, users don’t need to invest in an IT infrastructure.

SaaS removes the need for organizations to handle the installation, set-up and often daily upkeep and maintenance. Software as a Service (SaaS) may also be referred to as simply hosted applications or cloud hosting.
