An Examination of Needs
Whether responsible for patient records or clinical research, the infrastructure you choose for your electronic medical data is critical to your ability to deliver premium, precise and compliant care. Issues such as regulation, risk, growth and mobility each must be considered and addressed in order to create an IT solution suitable to meet your healthcare organization’s needs.
The US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that you house patient data securely. Equally important, protection for in-house patient billing information must comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Fortunately, the compliance can be addressed by having your hardware and devices safely placed in a data center facility that is HIPAA ready from a physical controls perspective and willing to sign a BAA.
In addition to regulations, there is data storage. It is estimated that the average amount of storage required for a single patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) is about 2 MB and growing. The US Affordable Care Act alone will introduce millions of additional insured Americans to the consumer market. Prepare now by finding scalable and affordable storage for your growing EHR system data to support this much anticipated market growth and your budgets.
What’s left? Interconnection and portability. Efficiently connecting your data to a dynamic mix of networks, exchanges and portable devices reduces the cost and time associated with medical service. Bandwidth, low latency, replication and backup are each solution cornerstones and are valuable for the seamless transmission and use of this data, especially between multiple systems and platforms.
Scalable, virtual storage can keep your growing database of medical records available, yet safe and secure. Consider our Virtual Private Data Center or Hybrid Cloud for large capacity storage at an aggressive price.
