Hi, we will need more information then this im afraid. What application, how much memory etc.

A hosted dedicated server isnt really being in the cloud, its more classed as just hosting services.

If they don't have a web based version, you probably won't be able to use a cloud provider and will have to go with some kind of dedicated server.

If this is just being used in one location, it's probably going to be easiest and cheapest to just buy an inexpensive server and house it at the location.

If you're set on having someone else handle the hardware maintenance, I've been happy with Server Beach (http://www.serverbeach.com) You'll then need to set up a VPN between the users and your server. Server Beach can rent you something for that or you could look into LogMeIn Hamachi (https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/) or NeoRouter (http://www.neorouter.com/) I've used Hamachi. I still need to investigate NeoRouter, but like that it's one time pricing.

Since you're working with medical records, you'll want to check HIPAA laws or anything else pertaining to patient record security before setting anything up.

Just saw your last comment after posting mine. Your best bet is probably to find a provider that will give you a turnkey solution so you don't have to worry about what to do when the server goes down. If you go with a cloud provider or ServerBeach, you'll still ultimately be responsible for any issues with the software product.
