Fog Computing: Meeting Current and Future Needs
The newest release from EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems harnesses fog computing architecture to deliver a system without compromise – significantly disrupting the ophthalmic electronic medical record marketplace in the process

The pros and cons of different electronic medical record (EMR) systems can cause confusion and leave practices with a difficult choice to make… Client/server systems allow practices to achieve superior performance and imaging capabilities but require management of a server. Browser-based cloud technologies allow access from any browser and eliminate the need to manage a server, but come at the cost of significant limitations inherent in browser-based systems.
Unfortunately, many ophthalmology practices do not have the in-house expertise to fully understand the impact of selecting one solution over the other. And yet they are forced to make technology infrastructure decisions that will have an effect throughout the lifetime of the practice. EyeMD EMR simply asked, why can’t we develop a system that merges the benefits of both?
“We recognized that some practices wanted to move away from having to deal with a server, but we knew that moving to a browser-based system would negatively impact the performance and capabilities of our Client/Server system,” says Abdiel Marin, CEO of EyeMD EMR. “The result was EyeMD EMR 2.0.”
The new system’s technological innovations, including state-of-the-art “fog computing architecture” are what sets it apart – and helps better address the needs of ophthalmic practices. In simple terms, fog computing combines the benefits of client/server and browser-based cloud systems into one superior platform, giving practices a system with the power and flexibility to adapt to current and future needs.
But the company has already set its sights on the future. Marin adds, “Although our products and services help practices improve workflow efficiencies and assist in the medical decision process, we believe the future lies in our products being able to help doctors become better doctors. We are working on technologies that will deliver on this promise.”
