Q. What if I lose my Internet connection while using Sevocity?
A: If you briefly lose your Internet connection, the encounter you are currently working on is temporarily stored on your computer and will re-sync with your database when your Internet connection is restored. Many practices also subscribe to their cellular/wireless carrier for a wireless card for their laptop or tablet. These cards are excellent for an Internet backup as they allow Internet access anywhere cell phone coverage is available. Because of this, many practices use the service on an ongoing basis, enabling them to access Sevocity and the Internet from virtually anywhere.

Q. How is Sevocity EHR implementation and training conducted? How long will it take until my practice is successfully up and running using Sevocity?
A: Implementation and training include workflow analysis, customizations, and web training. We can take most customers live within 4-6 weeks of contracting.
