Well, you could just sign up with an Internet-ASP based prenatal system for about $18 - $25 per patient and not buy an unlimited use annual license for the SmartOB Forms for $29.95. I haven't actually seen the ASP prenatal forms but assume they are good.

Or, if you want to access your forms on the Internet from the hospital or anywhere else that you have Internet access, you can set that up yourself. Probably the simplest and easiest way to gain Internet access to your charts is through the service GoToMyPC . All you need is for the office computer that houses your patient charts to be running with a continuous Internet connection. Then sign up with GoToMyPC and you're done. The cost for this service is about $180 per year. When you couple that with the relatively puny cost of the SmartOB forms ($29.95 per year), your total cost would be ~$210 per year. You can perform the cost/benefit analysis.

Of course, this site is all about practicing as cost effectively as possible. You don't actually NEED Internet access, but if you really want it and don't want to pay for GoToMyPC , then there is a do-it-yourself (or with the help of a computer professional since it is more complicated than the GoToMyPC route) option out there. First, you need to have a static IP from you Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you have Internet access in your office, chances are you probably already have a static IP since this is fairly standard with businesses. Check with you ISP to make sure. Then you need to have a version of Windows that supports Remote Desktop Web Connection. This was the "Professional" version in Windows XP. Those are the 2 critical items that you need. Now you can set up your PC as a remote host and connect to it through the Internet for free. All you have to do is follow the instructions here.

There are probably other choices out there such as Norton's "PC Anywhere" but this is not an exhaustive review and there will probably be other choices in the future. I recommend the two options above.
