Cloud based computing and solutions seem to be all the news lately – it’s what everyone is talking about! There is a common perception that if it’s in the Cloud it must be better…maybe, and maybe not.
At the end of the day there is no black and white answer – it all depends on the needs and the requirements of the organization. Many are quick to jump on the Cloud bandwagon, but it is important to consider the differences of Cloud versus on-premises, and what works with your current architecture.
To understand the differences of cloud computing and on premises, let’s look at some what they are about.
I sit at my desk the day after having my vaccines so that I can safely travel to the Cloud Expo Asia Event in Singapore in October, trying to take my mind away from the droning pain in my arms. Yes, I know I probably shouldn’t be able to type with the pain so bad, but that’s the point; yes, it hurts like hell, fortunately, I can just about type this blog… and then a simple analogy entered my mind…
It occurred to me that the ache in my arms since having the vaccines, is a lot like the ache of moving your traditional print management solution to the cloud – It’s doable but it hurts like hell!
With the rising popularity of cloud services, it is not surprising that the cloud has expanded into printing. Cloud printing can be described as a service that allows users to print from any device on the network. Cloud printing connects digital devices like smartphones, laptops, and tablets, and workstations with printer stations.
By comparison, traditional printing done through cables is plagued by software driver problems, compatibly issues, and device connectivity problems. Today’s cloud printing service eliminates the need for printer drivers, instead links the printer and device and allows the printer to receive the digital information via the cloud.
Cloud computing is basically a collection of different services provided by different companies. It mainly depends on resource sharing using internet enabled devices that allow the function of application software.
The Cloud can serve a wide range of functions over the Internet, such as storage from virtual servers, virtual applications, authorization of desktop applications etc.
By implementing resource sharing, cloud computing is able to achieve reliability and economies of scale. There are mainly two types of cloud computing models which are service based and deployment based.
The main difference between EMRs and EHRs is that EMRs (Electronic medical records) are digital versions of paper charts that clinicians and healthcare workers use at the office, whereas EHRs (Electronic health records) are digital versions of patient charts, but it is a more detailed record of a patient’s medical history.
With a lot of news coverage and changes in technology, the terms EMR and EHR are often mixed up, leading to some confusion.
There are quite a few differences between EMR and EHR. Below we outline the major differences and some challenges healthcare workers may be facing in EMR and EHR printing.
