The healthcare industry generates and manages vast amounts of sensitive data that are vital for good patient care. With the recent Covid-19 outbreak the amount of data has risen exponentially. With the huge amount of data being generated it’s important to keep the data safe and accessible. A way of achieving that is by moving the healthcare data into cloud storage.
Fast and easy access to important medical information is vital for diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care. Uploading a patient’s health records and other diagnostic findings into the cloud will help to keep the data organized and will also help in easy retrieval whenever needed.
Cloud-storage makes it easier to provide authorized access to privileged information. For example, a patient’s financial data, their billing history, is not required by the frontline care providers and that information could be kept hidden from them.
Mishandling a patient’s report is the biggest threat to good patient care. If data is stored in the cloud it gets updated in real-time, which means physicians and other specialists always have the latest information to understand and collaborate on treatment options.
With all the information being fed into the Cloud, it provides a backup for the data. In the event of any disaster or system failure healthcare providers can quickly and easily restore the data with minimal disruption.
One of the main benefits of using cloud storage is a lack of upfront costs to buy physical servers. Instead, using cloud services allows organizations to only pay for the resources they actually use.
According to the 2019 Healthcare Data Breach Report by HIPAA journal 37.47% more records were breached in 2019 than in 2018. So, it’s important that your cloud provider pays attention to data security.
Therefore, the move to the cloud should be on a platform like DCirrus as we provide a greater range of customization and value your data.
