3 Benefits of online scheduling

2019-08-15T08:00:45-07:00

While quality of care is a major factor when patients choose a healthcare facility, convenience is now becoming another key consideration. Online scheduling, in particular, has become more and more important in selecting a healthcare provider.

Even if the use of smartphones, tablets, and other internet-connected devices has already permeated society, many healthcare facilities have trouble keeping up with the times. But those that have kept up with tech trends have seen an uptick in both the number of patients they take in and the quality of care they are able to provide, while facilities relying on the old ways continue to remain stagnant in both areas.

Online scheduling is one of the simplest and most popular technologies used by forward-thinking health clinics and hospitals. It allows patients to see when a doctor is available and schedule an appointment on your website. Practices that use online scheduling are able to reap the following benefits.

How to delete data from your mobile device

2019-08-14T08:00:00-07:00

It’s not our business if you want to sell your old smartphone or give it away. But it’s a good idea to securely delete what’s stored in it because you wouldn’t want the next owner to get hold of your sensitive information. Follow the steps below before letting go  of your device.

1. Encrypt your Android phone

Ensure that strangers don’t have access to your private data by encrypting it to make it unreadable. Newer phones usually encrypt data by default. But if you’re unsure about yours,  double-check to avoid regrets later.

Go to Settings in your phone and search for Encryption. Where you’ll find that depends on the phone you’re using, but it should be easy to locate. Once there, you’ll see whether your device is encrypted or not. If it’s the latter, start the encryption process. This normally takes an hour or more, and you can’t use […]

3 Concerns with implementing virtualization

2019-08-13T08:00:03-07:00

Virtualizing your servers, networking devices, and other machines can drastically lower costs and dramatically shorten IT infrastructure deployment times. However, implementing this requires a lot of IT expertise that can’t just be pulled off by regular technicians. Here are three things specialists consider when managing virtualization efforts.

Backing up data can be such a hassle
Incorporating a robust backup system in a virtualized setting can become a huge challenge. This is because you have to determine which data you want to store and how often it should be backed up, then you have to decide whether you should back up all your virtual machines or just some vital ones that have important apps and data.

In short, the amount of data that needs to be backed up can be overwhelming. The only way to overcome this is to integrate a powerful virtual backup solution offered by a reputable managed services provider (MSP).

Ensuring security complicates the virtualization process
Security concerns are more complicated in a virtualized setting since you have to monitor security […]

Why you shouldn’t jailbreak your iPad

2019-08-12T08:00:32-07:00

A lot of iPad users resort to jailbreaking to gain greater control over iOS. With a jailbroken iPad, you can download apps unavailable in the App Store and get additional functionality from apps installed on your device. However, this virtually unrestricted access to apps and features has its cons, not least of which are security issues. Read on to find out why you shouldn’t jailbreak your iPad.

Security vulnerabilities

Jailbreaking removes security features designed to protect your iPad and the sensitive information it contains. So when you download and install third-party apps onto your jailbroken iPad, you may introduce malware, spyware, and viruses that can compromise your data’s security and slow down or damage your device.

Warranty issues

Although it’s perfectly legal to jailbreak your iPad, Apple has made it clear that jailbreaking is a violation of the iOS software license agreement. As such, any jailbroken Apple device will not be protected under their warranty service coverage. Apple may even deny service for your […]

Tips for buying a business projector

2019-08-09T08:00:21-07:00

If your last corporate presentation looked faded or dim on screen, or your existing projector is still the bulky, heavy kind, it may be time to buy a new office projector. But before you purchase one, you need to be more informed of your options so your investment will not go to waste. Here’s a quick and painless rundown of what makes a business projector worth your money.

Brightness and light output

A projector cannot display bright images without enough light output. Even if you dim the lights in the room to compensate, images will appear muddy and blurred if the light output is too low. 

To find out if a projector’s lamp has the correct brightness for your needs, look for its ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Lumens rating. It will tell you how much light that particular projector can put out. Projectors that have […]
