There are real benefits to choosing a cloud-based, fully HIPAA-compliant email service. Using the cloud means that all of your data is backed-up with every keystroke and stored in extremely secure centers, not on a vulnerable server in your office. The cloud also means speed, freedom and flexibility in the way you work. Here are three ways cloud-based email improves business.
1. Work faster. Cloud-based email can streamline your workflow with one interface for both your compliant and regular emails. One interface means one login. With that feature, you no longer have to log in and out of different windows.
2. Send Protected Health Information (PHI) from anywhere and transfer image files of any size. The cloud gives you freedom to send and receive compliant email no matter where you are. As an added bonus, some dental-focused cloud services include unlimited attachments in each email. Zero file size limits mean you can send any type and size of image.
3. Refer with ease. Some services offer unique functionality such as a built-in, pre-verified referral network for easy access right inside the email window.
Now is an excellent time to look at your business services with fresh eyes to see where you can speed up your workflow, reduce stress, and save money.
