For most people, any mention of the cloud causes flashbacks to high school science class—a white, fluffy cumulus or dark, stormy nimbus. But when we talk cloud, we mean neither. We’re talking the techy type: cloud computing.
Cloud computing is, quite simply, internet-based computing. Essentially, shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices (like your smartphone) on demand. Think about it like an electricity grid for information—you plug in (sign on) and immediately are able to access the flow of information available to you without needing your own generating station (in this case, bulky servers to house all your data).
Have a Gmail account? Then you’ve used cloud-based software. You get all the benefits of access, storage, tools, and features without any of the hefty storage or upkeep responsibilities you might have if you were running it directly from your hard drive.
Want more perks?
Storing your data on a server in your closet is just about as secure as keeping your money under the mattress—there’s no failsafe. Keep your data in the cloud instead and you benefit from a host of WebPT’s super cool security features.
- Unique password-protected access
- 256-bit SSL encryption
- TRUSTe Certified Privacy
- Automatic data backups
- And all the benefits of the IO Data Center

We’re guessing not many PTs graduate with a computer science degree in addition to their Doctorate, and that’s just fine. We hire the expert IT staff so you don’t have to and they’re just a call or click away.
Whether your clinic is a startup or a well-established company, operating lean is just good business. So ditch your labor-intensive, time-consuming, expensive server-based EMR and make the switch to WebPT, the leading cloud-based EMR.
