How does Zedmed Cloud work?

In the On-Premise model, workstations access a local server where your database is stored. With cloud delivery, your database resides in the cloud inside its own secure container. Your workstations access the database using a secure encrypted connection. For this reason, when describing cloud delivery, we talk about your database rather than your server.
Cloud technology uses secure facilities with layers of redundancy so that no single failure can cause interruptions or risk your data. Zedmed has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) who operate ISO 27001 certified data centres in Australia, within Australia’s legal framework. They provide the cloud hosting that Zedmed databases run on, and Zedmed itself manages those databases.

Migrating to Zedmed Cloud

If you currently run Zedmed on your own local server, moving to Zedmed Cloud is simple and seamless. Preparations are performed by Zedmed with limited interruption to your operations, and the switchover happens at an agreed time. If you have a non-Zedmed environment, we’ll migrate you to Zedmed Cloud as part of our full-service solution.
After the switchover, your staff and doctors can continue working as normal. They will not see any difference in the software.

Zedmed Cloud is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that delivers the efficiencies and savings of cloud technology to our customers. The expense and expertise needed to maintain your server become Zedmed’s responsibility, allowing your practice to focus on healthcare delivery.
