HIT Infrastructure, November 14th, 2017
Organizations are adopting more digital tools into their health IT infrastructures, which calls for a more flexible IT environment. Entities are looking to have the security and access of on-premises data centers while benefiting from the flexibility of the public cloud, resulting in healthcare hybrid cloud environments.
The healthcare industry has been hesitant to move to the cloud, but strictly on-premises solutions don’t offer the flexibility needed for a modern health IT infrastructure. Reluctant organizations are finding that they need the cloud to use tools that improve patient care and clinical workflow.
Cloud can help by expanding storage environments for long or short periods of time when organizations are creating projects or experiencing busy times of the year. Entities don’t need to spend the money to expand their on-premises infrastructure.
