At Partners HealthCare, the enterprise research infrastructure and services team provides the research and clinical innovation communities in the health system’s academic medical centers and community hospitals with technology and platforms.
Healthcare is heavily data-driven, and health researchers do their work having come to expect that the storage is secure while data stays accessible.
“In recent years, federal regulations, state laws and requirements from collaborating and contracting institutions have made compliance, auditing and security increasingly more complex and cumbersome to report on,” said Brent Richter, enterprise director of enterprise research infrastructure and services at Partners HealthCare. “In addition, the amount of data under management continues to grow exponentially. We needed a storage system that could meet the higher level of security stringency when those regulations and contractual obligations came into play.”
