The healthcare industry is becoming more digital, collaborative, and data-driven than ever before. Cloud allows healthcare businesses to improve doctor-patient connections and ensure that personalized healthcare can be accessed anywhere in the world through secure data sharing. SG1 Cloud Migrations makes it easy to integrate your technology and applications while meeting the healthcare industry’s regulations and standards
Security is a primary concern in healthcare because the industry frequently deals with confidential and sensitive data shared between patients and doctors. It is critical for healthcare professionals to maintain a secure system for collecting and storing patient information. Professionals must also keep in line with industry and legal regulations, including HIPAA.
Many healthcare professionals still rely on paper document filing systems and are reluctant to change their traditional methods. However, in an increasingly mobile-centric world, many patients want and expect to have access to their health records through the web. Many small healthcare organizations do not have the money to spend on revitalizing their costly in-house infrastructure and servers, leaving them a step behind on the latest, most efficient technology.
Healthcare businesses are required to comply with many privacy laws and regulations, including HIPAA and PSQIA. These rigorous regulatory measures can make it difficult for healthcare companies to adapt to new technologies that involve moving large quantities of data.
Healthcare workers often need to communicate across multiple departments in one or more offices to ensure a patient is getting the full care they require. A lack of reliable and fast collaboration in dire medical situations can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.
