Healthcare and life science enterprises face unique challenges in implementing IT solutions that meet their operational needs in terms of cost, compliance, and reliability. Cloud computing allows healthcare organizations to improve disaster recovery plans, process big data, improve collaboration between doctors, and to access a secure, dedicated network infrastructure.Healthcare providers interested in reducing expenditures on IT environments and infrastructure without compromising the quality of patient care or the security and availability of data should look to cloud computing. According to a HIMSS Cloud survey, the global cloud computing market growth rate is currently at 26.1% among healthcare providers, indicating that the adoption of cloud technology is accelerating, becoming more widespread in the industry. Virtualization of patient care is rapidly growing, and is projected to double by 2020 according to an IHS market study.
Healthcare organizations deal with sensitive information including patient records and contact information which need customizable and secure cloud storage and backup. More importantly, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates policy surrounding the protection and confidential handling of protected health information; with HIPAA compliant cloud solutions, our public, private, and hybrid cloud platforms are a perfect fit for the healthcare industry.
