Cloud and managed services
Hospital management is a balancing act these days: you have to have the most up-to-date technology, but you also have to keep costs down. Happily not all solutions have to be installed physically at your site. Some can be provided to you as a managed service – including in the cloud.
Cloud computing has a lot to offer the healthcare domain. Cloud and managed services let you shift the burden of IT to experts, so you can focus on your core business: healthcare, not technology. But your hardware and software remain ‘evergreen’, without additional investments. And you can move away from a traditional CAPEX model (buy the dedicated hardware and depreciate it over a period of time) to an OPEX model in which you use a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as you use it.
Our entire medical imaging portfolio is ‘cloud ready’. Cloud computing is a great solution for archives, for example. We offer disaster recovery, primary and DR archives in the cloud. Our cloud services are available for IMPAX, IMPAX Agility, ICIS and ICIS View.
Of course data security is always an important criterion for a hospital: our archives in the cloud can actually be safer than your on-premises archive, with end-to-end encryption and disaster recovery as a feature, not an add-on. We work with our established partners . For additional security, we only work with private clouds in Tier 3 data centers with BAA.
If you prefer an on-site managed service for IMPAX Agility, we can offer that, too, combined with a cloud archive. We take care of provisioning the solution (application, interfaces, database, infrastructure and data center), monitoring, technical expertise, application support, database administration, PACS administration, training, evergreen management and 3rd party vendor management.
It’s peace of mind, with a minimal upfront investment, so you can invest in what really matters, patient care and outcomes.
