The vision center that chose the Argentstratus Private Virtual Office has two offices located in Clark County Washington. The owners approached Gencom Northwest about how to design and implement a highly secured on-premise server to support their software. Eric Wilgus, owner and Chief Technologist of Gencom Northwest, reviewed with the doctors the costs and benefits of designing and implementing an on-premise server system in relationship to using the Argentstratus Private Virtual Office. The doctors realized the potential for a highly secured cloud-based server system to support their growth and business opportunities.
Officemate©, the clients software choice, is a highly regarded software package in the industry and is designed for the practice with multiple professionals. The problem facing the vision clinic is that newer generations of the software are more powerful and demand more resources because of the new requirement for portability;
“Working in a virtual server system could be the best way to get healthcare practices to upgrade their software to the HIPAA compliant versions that are being released now and that are possibly covered by the HITECH Act.” Eric points out. The HITECH Act offers a stimulus to reimburse healthcare practices who license Electronic Health and Practice Systems that allow for portability.
“Vision center doctors will be amazed at how much faster Officemate© works in a virtual server environment than even on a local on-premise server.” Eric says. “In large part this is because the virtual servers are so much more powerful than the local servers and all the processing is done on the cloud servers instead of local PC’s.”
According to Mike Leitch, Infrastructure Coordinator for Argentstratus, “The Argentstratus Private Virtual Office is ideally suited for businesses with multiple offices. Our unique process of working with the client’s software is radically different from the current wave of vendors hosting their own Software as a Service (SaaS) system. We think our approach of hosting the programs that clients want and storing their data on a highly secured, but accessible cloud server, allows the business to rethink how it wants to work in the future. The added benefit is that professionals can now work without the constant worry of data security and business continuity.”
