Recently on this blog, we discussed the veritably inconceivable proliferation of digital data that has accumulated in the last 10 years, and how chiropractic EHR is contributing to this sea of information. While there are undoubtedly benefits to this accumulation of knowledge, the rapid growth of Big Data also poses several unique challenges regarding security and retrieval.
Recently, CloudTweaks presented some of these hurdles in an eye-catching infographic about cloud computing.
"Most people know that cloud storage comes with some risks, but it can also be a savior for your business if you use it in the correct manner," the source states.
One cause for consistent contention that industries have struggled with for years is the decision between managing your IT solutions in-house or outsourcing this task to a third party, and an increasing reliance on digital data has only served to fuel this fire.
The infographic describes this conflict as "the X-factor" – and the key to success involves shifting from an approach that is primarily focused on chiropractic management software itself and instead prioritizing business strategies that leverage the benefits of health IT.
Of course, being able to make this transition is dependent on the chiropractic EHR provider you select. If you invest in unintelligible software, or a decent program that is backed with insufficient training or support, you have no option but to focus your resources on the health IT infrastructure.
But, by selecting an intuitive program from a provider that offers comprehensive training and consistent assistance as needed, you'll be free to start thinking about the big picture. How can switching to chiropractic EHR help you? After streamlining your day-to-day administrative tasks, what will you do with the time you are given?
