With hospitals and physician practices implementing electronic health record software on a large scale, patient data is increasingly becoming digitized and more secure. However, not all digital storage spaces are created equal. Organizations must make the tough decision of whether to host clinical and practice management on their own on-site servers or use HIPAA-compliant cloud storage.
Due to the cost-savings and increased security of moving to the cloud, more and more health organizations are moving away from on-site servers. One reason for this is that on-site servers are limited to storing information at locations that may be vulnerable to things like theft and fire, while with cloud storage information is kept on highly secure remote servers that are monitored and maintained on a continual basis by IT and security experts.
