Savvy healthcare organizations in need of greater IT infrastructure agility, performance, security, and compliance are exploring the benefits of public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. The allure of on-demand cloud services combined with advances in cloud security have transformed the healthcare IT mindset from “Why move to the public cloud?” to “What should we move, how do we do it?”
The potential benefits of moving to the cloud are not without their challenges, however, including:
- Selecting the public cloud provider(s) offering the best combination of cost-savings and healthcare-relevant features and benefits
- Identifying the skills and expertise needed to coordinate the migration process from on-premise to the cloud
- Ensuring PHI is safeguarded throughout the entire process and maintaining all HIPAA compliance requirements
- Mitigating downtime and lost productivity
During this session, a panel of healthcare cloud technology experts will discuss these key considerations along with the pros and cons of doing it yourself versus partnering with a managed services provider.
