Data Centers for the Healthcare Industry

Healthcare organizations face unprecedented challenges

Healthcare executives are faced with an unprecedented number of challenges to innovate new products and services, reduce costs, and provide improved patient outcomes.

Healthcare technology is the critical link for many organizations and top concerns leaders are wrestling with include:

  • Digital data is exploding due to technological advances and government incentives to implement EHR/HMR.
  • Increased enforcement of HIPAA security is compelling healthcare organizations to upgrade data security and disaster recovery protocols or face high penalties.
  • Applications containing electronic protected health information (ePHI) such as Electronic Medical Records (EMR), digital imaging, revenue cycle and billing software, and other clinical applications are required to follow HIPAA compliance guidelines.
  • Increasing pressure to implement meaningful use, reduce healthcare costs and improve care outcomes while protecting patient interests


Many leading healthcare companies are moving to outsource their data centers to deal with these concerns.

Healthcare reform is focused on not only improving how you manage data, but how you use it. More collaboration is necessary, data sharing is becoming critical and community care ideas are taking shape. This contributes to new challenges in a wide range of operational areas, including data protection, regulatory compliance, and IT management.
