CareCloud Rocks with Healthcare in the Clouds
CareCloud was the co-winner of the IBM Global Entrepreneur Silicon Valley
SmartCamp competition in 2010. CareCloud is a company that modernizes the workflow in a medical practice to put physicians
in touch with each other across multiple points of care, through a cloud Computing technology-based solution. "We feel our
solution helps revolutionize the way physicians collaborate and share critical healthcare information," said Albert
Santalo, president and chief executive officer, CareCloud. You can Learn more about rhe SmartCamp competitions in 2011 by

CareCloud is Trusted and Verified
Personal health records are private and protected by law, and practice financials aren’t exactly public record, either.
CareCloud’s web-based healthcare software is 100% HIPAA compliant,
meeting and exceeding government security standards for data transmission and storage. Because CareCloud is fully HIPAA
compliant, you never need to worry about failing to meet the stringent security requirements it imposes. CareCloud
protects electronic data against unauthorized retrieval with 256-bit SSL file encryption, which delivers government-grade
security and privacy.
Why Use Cloud Computing Healthcare
One of the best aspects of Cloud Computing is its scalability. Cloud infrastructures are elastic, so they expand and
retract as needed, meaning no more latency-inducing, productivity-killing network congestion. You don’t ever need to worry
about running out of space on your server, because your server is our server, and our servers are infinitely scalable.
No growing pains, no bandwidth issues, and no arbitrary limitations – just superior hosting solutions with limitless
resources available on demand, powered by the world’s most advanced healthcare software platform.
Room to Maneuver
The elastic nature of Cloud Computing means smalls businesses can grow and evolve at their own pace without having to
worry about expanding at a faster rate than their infrastructure can handle. You can hire a dozen new physicians without
having to install any extra servers or hire any new IT people to handle and safeguard the influx of data, because your
practice is hosted in the Cloud instead of locally. Running your practice management software on the web instead of inside
your operating system means it’s much faster to get up and running without having to invest in expensive local storage
solutions. You can learn more about Cloud Computing at developerWorks.
Taking a cue from the most popular social networking sites, CareCloud's patient portal makes it easy for providers to form
engaging relationships with their patients by establishing a permanent and accessible line of communication between the
two. Engaging your patients is critical to improving the patient experience, which can boost patient collections while
increasing the likelihood that they will become repeat customers.
Medical Practice Analytics & Reporting
These days, running a profitable physician’s practice requires on-demand access to meaningful analytics. With CareCloud, you get easy-to-read, self-populating graphs and charts that make
forecasting easy and auditing a cinch. Our practice management and medical billing software doubles as a real-time
business analysis tool, so you can see exactly what’s going on in your medical practice at all times. Making tough
financial decisions without the right information can have disastrous results, but with high-quality, actionable business
intelligence in your hands, you can augment productivity and enhance profits by making the right choices every time.
