Using 'Cloud' to Access Digital Medical Records

Local company joins growing list of providers storing information on Web

Tucson based GoPHR is taking digital medical records off your computer and into the world.

The company allows subscribers to store medical records in a so-called cloud, a web-based format that makes it easy for patients, physicians, emergency responders--basically, anyone who can log in--to access a person’s medical history.

Digital medical records are a growing part of the online world, as state and federal legislation makes it easier and in some cases required.

Security is often a concern about storing records online, but company officials say they have military-grade firewalls in place in order to ensure only authorized people get to see the records.
