Simplify Patient Data Management with as-a-Service for Healthcare

The healthcare industry has been accelerating digital transformations in response to changing care delivery needs brought about by the pandemic. Deploying new technology has enabled hospitals and care facilities to develop new care models to meet the needs of patients and clinical teams. We are continuing to see increases in telehealth, wearable devices and patient interactions with their medical records.

What does this all mean? It means healthcare is facing a data explosion. In examining the data, we see a 7x anticipated growth in telehealth1 with healthcare data forecast to reach 10ZB by 2025.2 The healthcare industry is facing a major data boom as part of its transformation. Add to this a 20% longer data retention rate3 and an increase in ransomware attacks, leaving hospitals with a challenge to manage, make sense of, and protect all this data. What now?

With more data comes the opportunity to further personalize patient care. With the right IT infrastructure in place, you can turn to analytics, new and emerging medical technologies and artificial intelligence to help increase care delivery across the care continuum and across the globe. However, to keep up with the extensive data growth, while keeping patient information protected, healthcare institutions need flexibility and agility.
