Healthcare SaaS Goes Offline!

Software-as-a-service (SaaS), the remote software delivery model that depends on a network or Internet connection for functionality, is finally going offline.

In my previous blog posts I listed out the key advantages & benefits to adopting Healthcare SaaS. And I got responses asking "What happens when we lose Internet at our office".

Given the ubiquitous nature of the Internet at our workplace it is hard to imagine not being connected, but SaaS vendors are now addressing that "what-if" scenario by enabling their SaaS Apps to sync data to the users local PC. More and more SaaS applications are going offline, meaning you can now access your data even when you are not connected to the Internet.

Mrecord's EHR is currently testing an early version of its offline sync which should be available to our customers later part of this year.
