Sorry to be responding so late, but I wanted to comment based on our experience. Our Ortho practice switched to the Cloud in 2014 when it first became available and I don't want to remember the days before being on the Cloud! Our office is so much more efficient!!! Our doctor can log on from home and work up cases, review a patient's file for an after hours emergency call or remotely discuss a child's treatment plan with the referring dentist by using the Citrix Receiver app on his phone. We have a third party Medical Billing Office that can post payments and correspond with our patient's as though they are right in our office. With multiple locations, it's freed up our staff to concentrate on what's important...our patients! No more transferring of records or waiting to get to another location where documents are stored.
In a world where electronics are a necessity, being Cloud based it just the next step. Carestream was wonderful with our transition and training. So glad we made the move!
