Private Cloud Ensures that Electronic Records and Practice Management is Supported by a Reliable Technology Infrastructure
Atlanta – October 22, 2012 – Adult Primary Care Associates, a physician practice specializing in internal medicine and preventive healthcare, has selected ProviDyn® for private cloud services. Earlier this year, the practice enlisted ProviDyn to determine if its existing technology infrastructure could support a move of Allscripts electronic health records (EHR) and practice management systems to cloud services.
Today, with financial incentives and stimulus stemming from the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) and Meaningful Use, an increasing number of healthcare providers are moving to electronic records to capture patient information, track and report clinical conditions and improve performance. However, many don’t realize that a solid and reliable infrastructure is critical for a successful transition to electronic records.
Adult Primary Care Associates wanted to take advantage of the benefits of upgrading their Allscripts technology but had an aging infrastructure that could potentially cause problems in its efforts to migrate to the latest platform. ProviDyn conducted a thorough evaluation and recommended that the practice consider migrating to a private cloud versus the more expensive option of purchasing all new equipment. With cloud services, the practice can move forward knowing that its infrastructure is able support growth to the EHR and practice management systems.
“With the private cloud, Adult Primary Care Associates is able to upgrade its practice management processes and also take its infrastructure to a new level,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “Taking the added step of ensuring that the infrastructure and existing equipment can handle going electronic is often a key element of a successful implementation.”
“We had reached a point with our existing infrastructure, that we were faced with major hardware improvements in order to be able to keep up with continuous upgrades to our software.”
said Julie Clemons, Practice Manager of Adult Primary Care Associates. “ProviDyn came in and conducted a thorough evaluation. Their recommendations for upgrading our infrastructure were strategic and cost effective.”
