Paper Vs Big Data In US Healthcare
The healthcare industry has been making its move toward technology, putting iPads and tablets into the hands of healthcare professionals and now, the latest big move has been adopting the concept of cloud computing to organize, share data and protect patient information and healthcare data from being tampered with or lost. Some might be wondering why medical professionals have waited this long to “hop on the cloud.” Perhaps the healthcare industry wasn’t ready before but they are definitely ready now. Greg Arnette, CTO of Sonian, a company that creates cloud-based technologies for businesses says that the healthcare industry has needed a more resilient network that is more up-to-speed than the average hospital’s IT network can offer. The most enticing part of a cloud computing system is the consistency in speed, uptime and its price tag.
There will undoubtedly be many more areas of concern moving forward. The good news is that much of this can be prevented. Proper training, Research, Data Storage, File Management, Privacy etc… are a number of key areas to focus on.
Included is a timely infographic by Bottomline Technologies which indicates that hospitals could save up to $45 Billion per year by switching from traditional paper based registrations to cloud based data storage services. It’s something to certainly ponder.
