Orthodontic Practice Migrates to the Cloud Through MSP Venyu

By Laura Stotler

Orthodontic practice Hendrix Orthodontics recently faced a challenge common among many small businesses, and particularly those in the healthcare industry. The company needed to update its IT infrastructure to a more modern system, and one that would be secure, centralized and compliant with industry mandates like HIPAA.

Rather than purchase expensive network infrastructure that would require continuous management, maintenance and upgrades while also running the risk of becoming obsolete, the practice decided to move to the cloud. They chose the VenyuCloud solution from MSP Venyu, including virtual servers and compliance with HIPAA regulations and more.

Venyu specializes in cloud-based virtualization offerings as well as business continuity and infrastructure lifecycle management. The company migrated three data servers and 50 PCs from an unsupported Windows XP environment to the cloud for Hendrix, along with additional hosting of the practice’s files, patient records, charts and X-rays.

Hendrix is getting managed support through an ITaaS model that enables the practice to pay only for the processing power they consume as well as utilize VMware virtualization for redundancy and high availability. VenyuCloud is also elastic, enabling Hendrix to adjust bandwidth and processing power to meet the requirements of specific applications. All data applications like files, billing and video presentations are now based in the cloud and the practice is taking advantage of hosted apps ranging from Microsoft Office to QuickBooks to specific orthodontic tools.

"Based on everything I'd read, the global transition to a cloud-based environment is inevitable,” said Dr. Jeff Hendrix of Hendrix Orthodontics. “Despite this, people kept telling me the complexities associated with my type of data made the cloud option impossible. What's truly amazing is that storing and accessing x-rays and patient records to and from the cloud is seamless; taking only seconds no matter where we are. The infrastructure is much faster and more reliable than our previous in-house server solution."
