We host the software and your database on one of our powerful, secure cloud servers.
You install both the ClinicOffice software and your database on your own computer hardware.
Fully Managed Service
We manage all program updates and take daily backups of your database.
Manage Your Own
Install your own program updates and manage your own database backups.
Easy Remote Access
Easily access ClinicOffice from anywhere with an internet connection… and from a range of different devices too!
No Remote Access (unless you configure it yourself!)
Either you don’t need remote access, or you have the technical expertise to configure and manage it yourself.
|You pay a little extra, but in return, your ClinicOffice data, and the hardware it runs on is fully managed by us.
|Local install is a little cheaper than hosted, because it’s on your own hardware and we don’t incur hosting costs.
|Our full Support Plan is included in the monthly subscription.
|Our full Support Plan is included in the monthly subscription.
|The Hosted Edition requires no installation, but it does require a solid internet connection. As with any online service, if your internet goes down you lose access.
We host your database for you on our secure servers and perform regular backups and maintenance on your behalf.
|ClinicOffice is installed locally on your own computer(s) and you will need to periodically update the software yourself. Program updates are included in the subscription.
Your database is stored on your own server (or networked computer). And you are responsible for maintaining it.
|ClinicOffice is accessible from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.
We recommend using a Windows PC, but you can use any device which can access a Windows Server via Remote Desktop (e.g. Apple MAC, Chromebook, iPad, Android etc).
|You can only access ClinicOffice from a Windows computer which has ClinicOffice installed on it and which is physically connected to your network.
Remote Access is still possible using 3rd party services, but this is something that you will need to manage yourself.
|ClinicOffice runs on our powerful servers, so your PCs don’t need to be brand new, high-spec machines. The most important factor is having a stable, fast internet connection.
|Performance depends on your hardware. If your PCs are modern and a decent specification, then ClinicOffice will run well – especially over a wired Local Area Network (LAN).
Q. Can I "try before I buy"?
Certainly! Click here for a 30 day FREE TRIAL to test out ClinicOffice on your own Windows computer. This allows you to install the program on your own computer (the same as the LOCAL INSTALL option) to try it out for a month.
We also have a demonstration account so you can test the CLOUD HOSTED version too. Please click here for a step-by-step guide on how to connect to the demonstration Hosted account.
Q. Is there a minimum contract period?
Our subscription service is operated on a one month rolling contract. You pay monthly in advance and are free 30 day’s notice to cancel the service at any time.
Q. What happens to my database if I decide to cancel?
Before cancelling, we recommend that you export any data that you need out of your database. ClinicOffice makes this easy by allowing you to export patient records, appointments, invoices, payments etc. to MS Excel and many other common formats.
After cancelling your service, we’ll double check with you that you’ve exported your data and then your database will be permanently erased from our server. We can also provide you with full database dump (in CSV format) of all your data tables if that’s helpful.
Q. How secure is my data on your CLOUD HOSTED service?
To access a database on one of our hosted servers, there’s a minimum of three layers of protectection.
Firstly, all servers are protected by a “whitelist firewall”. This ensures that only connections coming from pre-authorised networks are allowed to communicate with our servers. Account holders have the ability to manage their whitelist to permit (or revoke) IP addresses.
Secondly, once through the firewall, the user must login to their own private Windows account. This connection is encrypted using Kerberos or TLS (aka SSL) for authentication, which according to Microsoft is “stronger encryption than your browser uses when communicating with your bank”.
Thirdly, the user still has to login to ClinicOffice with their own username/password combination.
Additionally, there’s the option of enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) on all user accounts too!
In summary… your data is very secure. For further peace of mind, we’re also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office on the Data Protection Register as a “data handler” which means that we fully comply with all their requirements for handling sensitive data.
Q. How much data I can store on your CLOUD HOSTED service?
It is impossible for us to offer unlimited storage on our cloud platform. Our fair usage policy limits databases to 10GB. Please bear in mind that in addition to the database, we also store several backups and we replicate data across two sites… so for a 10GB database, we will be storing about 50GB of data.
Q. Will I need more than 10GB?
We have customers who have been using ClinicOffice for over a decade whose databases are still well under 1GB, since they store mainly text-based data. Conversely some customers store thousands of high definition images or PDF scans with hundreds of pages, in which case the database size will increase as more and more large files are added.
Q. What happens if I need more than 10GB?
There are a couple of options. ClinicOffice has full Dropbox integration, so all file & document attachments can be moved to your Dropbox account. The files, images and documents will show up exactly as if they were in your database, but they’re stored in (and retrieved from) Dropbox instead. NOTE: with this option, Dropbox will be fully responsible for the security and safety of all file attachments, not us.
The other option is to pay for extra space on our platform, which is £10+vat for each additional 10GB required.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss these options.
