As always, we allow for our clients to choose the deployment method for the IMAGINE system. IMAGINE is the only standard platform in the industry that requires no modification in order to operate in any of these environments at unsurpassed levels. Its design and flexibility allows the system to be deployed in any method while allowing for a new or different method at a later time with no need for software change, conversion, or retraining.
The most requested deployment method of the IMAGINE billing system is a form of centralized architecture. IMAGINE’s suite can be implemented as a stateless system in either a thin client, virtualized, or as a typical client/server system.
IMAGINE is used to bill for over 600 practices using a form of the traditional method.
IMAGINE hosted on an infrastructure operated solely for a single organization. In this case IMAGINE can be managed and hosted internally or directly with us. This allows the application to run on most devices with many Windows and Mac operating systems.
As of August 2012 IMAGINE clients have billed for over 100 Million procedures using the Private Cloud/On Demand Method.
IMAGINE offers a Hybrid method which is a composition of two or more methods (private, community public) that remain individual entities but are bound together, offering the benefits of multiple deployment models. Community based marketing, industry collaboration, payment and statement portals coexist with private protected information.
By utilizing "hybrid cloud" architecture, practices are able to obtain the benefits of the web combined with immediate usability without depending on internet connectivity.
95% of IMAGINE clients use a hybrid method.
