Cloud Computing in Rural Health

Cloud Computing in Rural Health
No Comments
  • Did you know that 90 percent of the available data today was produced in the last two years?

  • The amount of data being produced is growing so exponentially that organizations are moving their data to the cloud for greater efficiency, a smaller footprint, and an increased ability to manage increasing amounts of data. However, cloud storage has, in many ways, become a complex issue. There is the public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS.

    How can Cloud Computing help sustain rural hospitals and practice centers through continuous innovation?

    ♦   Through scalable implementation, meaning you pay for only the cloud computing storage you need to consume today
    ♦   Elasticity of the cloud to contain cost, yet sustain top-notch security
    ♦   Maintenance and optimization of local hardware and software

Currently, rural health providers face many challenges for onsite environments: 

♦   Maintaining legacy systems
♦   Lack of training and technical expertise across IT specializations
♦   Increased Cap Ex deployment for redundant systems
  • The economics of cloud computing provide a compelling argument for rural health facilities. The digital environment provides greater opportunity for collaboration and participatory relationships across the healthcare spectrum.

  • Experts predict that within five years there will be nearly 50 billion smart connected devices in the world. Our need to secure data will only increase. Cloud computing can save rural health by providing state of the art technology, with secure access across multiple devices, networks and systems, at less cost.
