Is your healthcare organization considering moving from on-premise software to the cloud? By using a cloud service provider (CSP) to store and process your data, you can save money on IT, streamline internal workflows, improve patient care, and make more intelligent business decisions based on analytics—all while preventing cyberattacks and maintaining compliance with industry regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The widespread adoption of innovative healthcare solutions like wearables, virtual assistants, telehealth services, and automation tools has caused organizations to expand their network of applications and resources—creating more opportunities for cybercriminals to infiltrate networks and steal sensitive information. Since healthcare providers store, analyze, and communicate personal data on a regular basis, that makes them the perfect target for hackers. And organizations with outdated applications and weak security measures are the most vulnerable. So when you’re developing and executing your cloud migration strategy, data protection should be the top priority.
Once you have a solid security system in place, with complex encryption methods, built-in firewalls, identity management solutions, and so on, you can begin to take full advantage of the cloud, without the fear of a data breach or violating HIPAA—both of which can be very expensive. You can increase productivity and improve the patient experience by integrating new technologies, like blockchain, IoMT (internet of medical things) devices, AI-driven appointment scheduling tools, competitor analysis software, and more.
In this whitepaper, backed by recent studies and surveys, we discuss the benefits of migrating to the cloud, as well as the key considerations and best practices for doing so.
