The Most Important Consideration for Your Healthcare IT Solution

The healthcare IT landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade. Having technology and critical data at their fingertips has altered the way providers approach patient care. It has also changed the way patients access, participate in and pay for the services they receive. IT has transformed the entire healthcare industry from top to bottom. Access, uptime and availability have become essential to providing excellent patient care and services.


Healthcare Business Continuity 

Three Critical Steps to Healthcare Business Continuity

For healthcare practices, meeting the high digital expectations of next-generation patient care is a formidable challenge. Doctors, clinicians and patients expect to be able to access health records at any time, from any device. Sensitive and critical health data is multiplying day after day, creating storage, backup and data-sharing nightmares for IT staff. All the while, regulatory compliance requirements and penalties continue to increase.

Downtime, data loss and data security breaches put health care practices at risk of regulatory fines, not to mention brand damage and lost patient trust. Patient lives may also be at risk because of a downtime event. Amid tight budgets, elevated expectations and increasing digital dependence, no practice can afford a misstep in today’s competitive and high-stakes health care market.

With so much at stake, healthcare organizations must address business continuity, and they must do so quickly and thoughtfully. According toTechTarget, the three most critical steps to healthcare business continuity are:

  1. Ensure continuity and availability
  • Optimize a backup and recovery strategy – Follow 3-2-1 Rule
    • Have at least 3 copies of your data
    • Store the copies on 2 different media
    • Keep 1 backup copy offsite
    • Ensure you can quickly recover entire machines to the application level
    • Ensure data loss avoidance
    • Recovery Time Objectives should be less than 15 minutes for all applications
  1. Achieve digital transformation agility
    • Cloud-based workload mobility
    • Workload mobility
  2. Enable analytics and visibility
    • Visibility and compliance to prevent system failure and downtime incidents
    • End-to-end visibility for both physical and virtual machines
    • Creation of incidents based on events that happen in your environment

Meeting the high digital expectations of next-generation patient care can feel like a moving target for healthcare IT. Downtime, data loss and data security breaches put everything that is important to a healthcare practice at risk. Downtime events can even put patient lives in danger. The fact is, no healthcare organization can afford to be unprepared in the modern healthcare market.

To be successful in the new landscape, healthcare practices must be confident in their business continuity strategy. A holistic availability strategy may include deploying cloud workload mobility, increasing visibility and compliance and optimizing backup and recovery strategy.

Strengthening Healthcare Cybersecurity With Secure Virtual Environments

In our increasingly tech-forward world, security and compliance should be top of mind in every industry. The healthcare sector is no exception. In fact, strengthening healthcare cybersecurity is essential. Protecting data privacy, ensuring environments are secure and maintaining compliance is more critical than ever before. Protected health information (PHI) is just as valuable – if not more so – than personal financial information. Keeping this data secure is required by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), but many healthcare organizations lag behind when it comes to IT security.


Enabling Hybrid Cloud Connectivity - Introducing Hyperscale Connect

The cloud isn’t a new concept anymore. It’s been around for years and in many ways, it has revolutionized the way we all do business. It’s no longer "nice" or "convenient" to have fast, secure and immediate access to the data you need. It’s essential.

Companies like Microsoft, Google and AWS have played key roles in advancing cloud infrastructure. By constantly testing, experimenting and expanding the possibilities of cloud computing, they’ve paved the way for more businesses to move forward with a digital-first approach.
