The fast-paced evolution of the healthcare industry is not merely matched by the ever-evolving world of IT, it’s in big part driven by it. Cloud, data analytics, virtualization: these are all terms that have become top-of-mind in IT largely in just the last decade or so. This focus is changing the way industries operate and go to market, and healthcare is no exception.
Healthcare IT leaders are charged with the task of adapting to the digital IT era, optimizing systems and infrastructures for increased agility and improved overall quality of care. Many IT teams are discovering that a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), combining forces on-prem and in the cloud, enables organizations with the dexterity, insight and ingenuity necessary for best-in-class, state-of-the-art operations.
Where healthcare is concerned, this is enabling faster synthesis of data for point-of-care feedback (including medical imaging), streamlining data management and protection (including EHRs), and reducing costs and lags of inefficiencies.
