Things People Don't Understand About Cloud Computing in Optical (GIFs)

Sometimes technology can be mind-boggling. And this can definitely be the case with cloud computing in optical. The majority of people have a hard time wrapping their head around the concept of storing data somewhere other than a hard drive on their own computer. Fortunately, with some explaining, it is not too complicated to catch up.  


When it comes to cloud computing in optical many people don’t understand…

Where exactly their data goes….    


Wait, you said it was in the clouds. Where did it go?!

…And they think you’re a wizard when you can tell them.


“How do you know that?! You must be magical.” It's really not that difficult. Instead of your data being stored on servers in your office, it's stored on servers at another location that you access via the Internet.

The freedom of accessing your files from anywhere.


Since all you need is the Internet to access your data you suddenly have the ability to work from home. A late night at the office becomes optional!

That you can use any device to access the files.


Tablet, smartphone, laptop, desktop: You name it, you can use it as long as you have an Internet connection. Use the cloud to make your practice flexible and mobile.

Your workflow is much quicker and much more efficient when using the cloud.


Your patients don’t want to spend all day in your office, and using a cloud-based software can help speed up the process. Everyone in your office can access the same system at the same time, which means everyone has the most up to date information.

Updates and bug fixes happen automatically.


You don’t have to worry about installing updates to your software or buying new products. Everything will update on its own, saving you time and money.

You can pay for cloud-based services month to month, and only pay for what you need.


This means you no longer over pay to have space, servers, or services you don’t really need yet.

It makes sharing secure healthcare data between your practice, patients, and other doctors a piece of cake.


Because everyone knows that sharing is the right thing to do.                                                                                            

And when you finally understand it all, you realize how awesome it really is.
