It takes a different skill set to build a web based software versus a locally installed software
Just because a company can build a locally installed software, doesn’t mean you should trust them to build a web-based software. There are a lot of unique considerations that need to be taken into account when building for web.
Healthcare regulations evolve and improve, your Clinic Management Software (CMS) and EMR should do the same.
In Singapore, both the government and non-governmental organizations work to improve healthcare standards and access. Both clinics and their IT vendors are responsible for ensuring that they are aware of these changes. At Plato, we both strive to ensure our partner clinics are aware of new changes, and that their software is updated to reflect new requirements.
Locally installed systems built with older technology cannot handle a lot of data. If your system takes a long time to complete its daily back-up (more than 10 minutes), if it manages transactions slowly, or if it crashes regularly, it is likely that your technology is unable to handle the amount of data you manage. Older, locally installed systems tend to fail for two reasons:
Security is a game of cat and mouse: if your Clinic Management Software or EMR is not updated regularly, it may not be secure.
At Plato, we believe that you should have clarity on how we protect your clinic’s data. IT security is like a game of cat and mouse – a software needs to use the latest encryption and security standards to stay ahead of anyone trying to gain unauthorized access to their data.
