How Cloud Managed Services Help Healthcare Organizations?

3 months ago

Though the cloud offers flexibility, scalability, increased collaboration, and document control, the lack of expertise & costly workforce prevent organizations to deploy and manage cloud infrastructure that lets them derive maximum benefits. 

Organizations see possibilities in business transformation with the cloud.

However, the cloud has evolved with many challenges. Security and cost management are major ones. 

A cloud-managed services provider rescues organizations from these challenges and streamlines their business transformation with a cloud journey.

5 ways cloud managed services help healthcare organizations to decode healthcare challenges 

Healthcare organizations strive to make their ecosystem faster, secure and efficient. To achieve this, cloud managed services help greatly.

#1.  Data security:

Healthcare is adopting advanced technologies such as AI, ML, and big data to make healthcare easily accessible, faster, and reliable. 

For that, patient data security is the most significant task as cybercriminals always keep their bulls-eyes open on the health tech security loopholes. 

Cloud managed services offer comprehensive security in the healthcare ecosystem in order to eliminate the data privacy concerns of the organizations.

#2. Data backup and recovery:

Organizations own a massive amount of data. Thus, it is essential to backup that data whenever the storage limits reach their peak.

In fact, cloud managed services also enable organizations to access that data without any time-consuming complexity.

#3. Saves money:

Cloud managed services offer more flexibility and scalability.

Hence, it is more cost-effective for healthcare organizations as they don’t need to pay for infrastructure installation and maintenance of software, hardware, and applications.

In other words, organizations just need to pay for the services they use.

#4. More accessibility: 

Healthcare is now all about big data.

So, it’s not easy for healthcare providers to access, manage, and share those sensitive data at the point of care.

Cloud managed services give streamlined data management solutions to improve care approaches and outcomes.

#5. Enhance collaboration:

Cloud collaboration helps organizations in several forms such as – easy access to the data, streamlining data sharing, and real-time updates. 

In short, it makes healthcare organizations’ collaboration more efficient and convenient.

Cost-saving, security and compliance are some of the benefits we make healthcare providers experience

With cloud technology, we have prepared Canada-based organizations for a healthcare data tsunami. Many healthcare research centers are focusing on research work rather than managing data infrastructure.

Our cloud-managed services include,

#1. Infrastructure-as-a-Service:

You can leverage the infrastructure-as-a-service model to host servers, storage, and networks. While you access infrastructure on-demand, expert engineers manage and maintain it to let you focus only on your core healthcare practice.

It is similar to a scenario where you are using a warehouse on-demand without having the responsibility of warehouse cleaning or any other maintenance task.

#2. Backup-as-a-service:

With the infusion of patient data, healthcare organizations are outgrowing their legacy storage backup and finding themselves under a financial burden to buy costly upgrades. 

We eliminate this challenge by connecting the healthcare system with a private, public or hybrid cloud managed by the provider. This guarantees that an organization will always have sufficient space.

#3. Infrastructure monitoring:

Our experts monitor both physical and virtual servers with the aim to find events or irregularities that could depict the error. 

We monitor it round-the-clock and respond quickly & professionally in the event of an error.

#4. Upgrades:

Keeping infrastructure up-to-date with technologies and security standards is crucial to getting a competitive edge. Many take this to the next level by customizing the technologies according to their needs. 

For instance, cancer institutes develop their own platform and AI algorithms to redefine cancer diagnosis.

We always keep upgrades in our checklist to keep services and virtualized data centers secure and up-to-date. We take care of testing, installation, troubleshooting and version control.

#5. Cloud networking:

Manage your all-network resources with our comprehensive and reliable cloud networking solutions.

We offer virtual routers, firewalls, bandwidth, and network management software that are highly scalable and easily accessible.

#6. Cloud security:

Avoiding security threats in healthcare is like messing up your organization's goals and business strategy. As healthcare IT experts, we are completely familiar with the consequences related to data breaches.

Hence, we offer a cloud security solution to protect your organization’s internal and external threats.

Possible ways how different healthcare providers can leverage cloud infrastructure

Any data, patient outcome, workflow, and insights-related problems can be solved brilliantly with the cloud. 

It even solves very unusual challenges. We helped a long-term care home to keep a track of residents’ mental states and analyze the data to find patterns and reasons.

  • LTC homes:

Rapid senior care is still beyond the reach of many LTC homes due to a lack of streamlined workflows and virtual care capabilities.

Switching to the cloud enables LTC homes to store, collaborate and track senior care data to improve outcomes. 

It also streamlines workflows such as prescription management and frees up hours for LTC staff to focus more on senior care.

  • Hospitals:

Complex care structures and multiple departments make patient and hospital management a daunting task. It generally results in poor collaboration, long waiting queues, and overburdened hospital infrastructure.

With the cloud, the hospital can house several centralized software including EHR securely, store patient data, meet regulations, track patient journeys, take appointments, ease team collaboration, and automate many processes such as health information exchange (HIE), payment, claims, and biometric value reading etc.

  • Clinics:

Clinics cannot treat more patients effectively at the given time due to low staff strength and healthcare infrastructure limitations. Many claims to solve this issue with government funding. But the way to invest in the right technology still remains the question.

Digital healthcare transformation with the cloud is the most cost-effective approach for small clinics due to its flexibility and on-demand model. 

Cloud facilitates clinics to take and manage booking appointments, save & track patient medical history, and treat patients remotely.

  • Pharmacy:

Many wonder how technology helps the pharma industry as they look odd together. But since the cloud is a possibility, pharma is no longer a non-technology-driven industry. 

Many pharmacy dispatch centers are dealing with day-to-day operations with robots and sophisticated algorithms.

Cloud facilitates pharmacies to manage vendor relationships, access real-time business data, open-up multiple revenue streams with online delivery platforms, deploy automation to reduce transcription errors and get crucial insights to make data-driven decisions.
