In place of cable news or daytime game shows, the team knew they could offer informative content tailored to individual healthcare practices.

While it’s true that applications like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive all do handle some level of organization and sharing of files, when it comes to truly helping you manage your media files, they simply don’t cut it.
