An Application Service Provider (ASP) is a company that offers access to information systems and software applications on a SaaS style "Software as a Service" basis. MED3OOO offers electronic health records, practice management, third party administration, and other applications on an ASP/SaaS basis. By “leasing” these services from MED3OOO, our clients gain access to advanced applications and support without the up-front costs of purchasing licenses and high-capacity servers, as well as the ongoing costs of maintaining a data center.
The decision to lease services through an ASP/SaaS model, as opposed to purchasing an information system, depends on many factors.
The advantages of an ASP/SaaS arrangement include:
- Avoidance of a large initial capital outlay for software licenses, high capacity servers, and the other up-front costs of establishing a data center
- Predictable regular monthly costs
- Scalability, allowing to pay now for the capacity you need now, rather than paying now for the capacity you’ll need at some future time
- Flexibility to have your systems grow with your practice, as opposed to being constrained by the size of the server installed in your practice
- Outsourcing of Information System functions, including security management, system upgrades, and system maintenance
- Redundancy and off-site storage for protection against data loss and system failure
- Built-in access to implementation and support
MED3OOO has evaluated medical practice information system vendors and products for quality, continuous improvement/updates, stability, support, and many other factors to determine which could best meet the needs of our clients. Additionally, we have implemented and enhanced third-party vendor technology.
At MED3OOO, we are operators and technology experts who strive to help you improve performance. Unlike a typical ASP, we understand the practical application of technology in the day-to-day functioning of a medical practice. MED3OOO uses the technology it recommends in the operation of successful medical practices around the country. This experience as an “operator” provides MED3OOO with a user’s perspective not available to other technology vendors and ensures that we are continuously testing and improving every tool we offer. The value of our experience is passed on to our customers.
