The Product 

C2C is a fully-featured, cloud-based practice and clinical management software designed for medical specialists and general practice physicians.

The Clinic to Cloud practice management and clinical tools can be used by a medical practice of any size and at any location. The application is accessible from any desktop or laptop hosting Windows or Mac software and on Apple or Android mobile devices using native mobile applications.
