SPC Dermatology is a physician group practice comprised of Board-Certified dermatologists and derma-pathologists located throughout Florida. The company successfully provides more than 80 physicians with IT support in scheduling, billing, and practice and patient management systems across 30+ locations.
SPC Dermatology Management was at a critical business crossroads. They had been running their applications internally, but they recognized the huge costs associated with continually upgrading their facilities and infrastructure. “We could either pour resources into replacing our infrastructure and find ourselves the same position down the road, or we could find a way to streamline our model,” says Michael Nestor, Vice President of Information Technology.
When they evaluated what they needed—which included back-up services, geo-redundancy, VM functionality, hardware, and staff to manage it all—partnering with M3COM to migrate to IaaS just made sense. “I believe that IT exists to make life better,” says Michael. “If we can change our perspectives and develop solutions to improve, we can truly lead and influence as business leaders.”
A partnership with M3COM is helping SPC Dermatology do just that. As they moved to IaaS, SPC realized both tangible and intangible benefits. “Good technology and infrastructure are like insurance. You have a team supporting you and backing things up if something goes wrong. It’s like a car; you don’t wait until there is an accident to put on your seatbelt.” In this case, “M3COM provided the seatbelts for our company so that we know, no matter what, our services will be up and running.”
