If you’re serious about investing on a cloud-based EMR app, make sure that you have a decent internet connection! While this may be an additional monthly expense (if you don’t have one yet), you’ll realize that it’s going to be a necessity in this fast-paced, technology-run planet. Email, Facebook, Netflix -- you’ll eventually have to get an internet subscription one of these days.
We’ve made a cheat sheet for our recommended internet service providers (ISPs) in PH:
1. Your clinic location. Make sure that the ISP you’re subscribing to gets good reception in your clinics. Some ISPs also have different pricing when your clinic is situated within a commercial establishment.
2. Your expected usage. If you’re going to be strict not to use your internet with non-clinic related services (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, etc.), we’re confident that you won’t reach your monthly CAP. Otherwise, consider a plan that can accommodate your other internet needs.
3. Your expected consumers. If you have 2 devices + your secretary’s + your reliever’s + you have a niece who’s busy watching k-pop videos on youtube after school, and they’re gonna be regular users, better ask your ISP which one’s ideal for your setup.
