Head in the Cloud: Shifting to Cloud-Based Data Storage Optimizes Healthcare Environments
The EMR is the foundational piece of technology in modern healthcare delivery, and while the positive impact with respect to information delivery and consolidation is indisputable, these massive investments incur high, ongoing costs and dominate the attention of both IT and system leadership with tactical maintenance and re-configuration concerns.
Adopting an advanced cloud storage infrastructure accelerates native applications to improve analytics and deliver more meaningful insights in less time, expedites time to delivery of all patient records, eliminates the need for constant tactical adjustments to improve EMR performance, and provides the backbone for a more efficient – and less visible – operating environment.
While the most successful providers have already moved towards integrated data infrastructures and invested in ensuring the transfer and analysis of clean, consistent information across systems and departments, the costs of storing this data are becoming a significant challenge.
