Welcome solo and group practice owners! We are Liath Dalton and Evan Dumas, your co-hosts of Group Practice Tech.
In this episode, we’re answering a question we get asked frequently: can we trust the cloud?
We discuss the benefits of using a HIPAA appropriate cloud service; what we mean when we talk about the cloud; outsourcing expertise, as well as liability and responsibility; how to trust something when you don’t know how it works; and how to educate yourself about data security.
