NEW YORK, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In the present-day, technology has become the driving force for virtually every industry. As a result, innovative technologies have revamped many industries and shaped them into what they are today. In particular, the cloud computing industry has become a major global sector and is primarily comprised of three main segments: infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and notably, software-as-a-service (SaaS). SaaS is a software distribution model in which a third-party provider hosts applications. In return, the SaaS providers distribute the applications and make them available for consumers across the web. SaaS is the exterior portion that consumers see on their web page browser, however, IaaS and PaaS are the interior infrastructures that make it all possible. There are certain fundamental SaaS applications that many businesses require such as email, sales management, customer relationship management (CRM), financial management, and human resource management (HRM). Many businesses, especially smaller ones, have begun to adopt SaaS due to its flexibility and the fact that it runs on its own software within the cloud and not on another company's computers or data centers. As a result, SaaS integration reduces expenses towards hardware, maintenance, installation, and support. According to data compiled by KBV Research, the global software-as-a-service market is expected to reach USD 185.8 Billion by 2024 while accelerating at a CAGR of 21.4%.

Major SaaS providers offer their services in various public sectors such as media, communications, or e-commerce. However, SaaS is now expanding into the medical field as well. Medical institutions such as hospitals and clinics are leveraging SaaS in order to maintain business operations by performing simple tasks such as updating the software. Typically, vendors are responsible for guaranteeing that the product works and this can be a major benefit for medical companies with small IT teams since ensuring that the product works well with the patient can take significant time. Moreover, SaaS also allows patients to easily access the institution's technology from remote locations, allowing for more accurate data when patients are off the facility's premises. "Most of you sit in institutions that have proprietary data centers which have some sort of logic about them. Most of that logic may have been true five or ten years ago, but it isn't today," Technical Advisor and former Executive Chairman of Alphabet Inc. Eric Schmidt said before noting that his industry has much safer, more HIPAA-compliant, and easier to use cloud-based servers, according to EHR Intelligence. "The cloud is more secure. I don't want you repeating the infrastructure work that we're doing. I want you all to focus on the innovation."
Advantego Corporation (OTCQB: ADGO) earlier this week announced that, "it would unveil its medical industry portfolio of bundled products and services under the brand name of ADGO Medical at the California Dental Association's annual conference May 16-18 at the Anaheim, CA Convention Center.
The Southern California CDA is the largest dental convention in California with more than 25,000 expected to attend.
The bundled solution to debut at the CDA will allow any medical professional to educate patients through multiple digital delivery systems on various platforms made available to their practice, connecting them with multiple sources of information and offer incentives/rebates for referrals. Efficiencies are created for each medical practice because they no longer must use multiple vendors and dedicate staff time to market their practice.
'This has been underway for a number of months with some field testing, so there is great anticipation at this event for product details,' according to Advantego Director of Sales & Marketing John Gillotti. 'Our research identified the needs, priorities and price points for the specific dental provider sector,' he pointed out.
Products will include Website Development, Premium Directory Listings, Reputation Management, eLobby (interactive digital signage), Social Media Management, SEO, CRM, Email, SMS Messaging, Ringless Voicemail, Appointment Making and other functionalities within this one comprehensive software suite.
Gillotti also said: 'This technology and delivery systems produced results for Advantego in another $275 billion industry, and we have high expectations for replicating that in the healthcare field. We are branding our products for consistency, adding ongoing sales support and bolstering customer support to fulfill our commitments to our target audience as well as budgeting the necessary capital to execute. By combining Google Analytics with our own propriety solution, we believe that we now have the best digital delivery system to market and grow any medical practice.'

Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT) is on a mission to make it as easy as humanly possible to navigate healthcare and live happier, healthier, more productive lives. Recently, Castlight Health, Inc. and the National Business Group on Health released Employer Perspectives of Personalization in Digital Health, a report on the current state of personalization in digital health benefits. The report covers results from a nationwide survey of benefits leaders at large U.S. employers, on how they define, perceive, and use personalization in their employee health benefits programs. The report highlights personalization's potential to impact the employee experience, how employers are using personalization, and gaps between the potential of personalization and current use. Notably, a large majority of employers (84%) believe personalization has "high" or "very high" potential to match employees with the right health benefits and resources to meet their needs. However, most employers (71%) report they are only tapping into that potential "a little bit" or not at all. "Employers are keenly focused on benefits strategies that address rising health costs and improve the employee health experience," said Brian Marcotte, President and Chief Executive Officer, of the National Business Group on Health. "One of the most effective strategies relies on leveraging the many data resources and digital health solutions available today to offer personalized recommendations that connect employees with the right health benefits at the right time."
