Adopt Modern Technology Platforms at a Lower Cost
Carevium cites the high cost of hardware as a potential reason why senior care facilities have historically been slow to modernize their technology practices. Avoid costly upgrades with cloud infrastructure based in secure dinCloud data centers. We also maintain the burden of upgrades and ongoing maintenance so your staff doesn’t get bogged down with additional responsibility.
Access Patient Health Records from Multiple Sites
Patient care isn’t constrained to one central point in your facility and neither should your computing resources. Our cloud infrastructure facilitates device mobility – meaning, you can access an entire workstation, files and business applications included, from virtually any device. Users can log in to their virtual workstation from a tablet, desktop or laptop and switch from device to device with ease as they move through their day and your facility.
Adopt a Secure Cloud Solution for HIPAA Compliance
