Your healthcare practice creates and manages tons of sensitive data vital to good health outcomes and proper patient care. To increase their practice’s operational flexibility, keep pace with industry changes, and scale your practice to accommodate growth, more and more hospitals, specialists, doctors, and clinics are leaving their old data storage methods and making the move to the cloud.
One of the biggest benefits of cloud storage is that it gives you fast and easy access to essential medical information. In any medical situation, having instant access to data is critical to treating, diagnosing, and providing ongoing care to patients. Uploading patient histories, health records, images, test results, and other diagnostic info to the cloud allows your team to always act on the most updated information.
Cloud storage also makes providing authorized access to sensitive or privileged information easier. For example, frontline care providers can be prohibited from seeing specific parts of a patient’s financial profile. In contrast, office staff can be blocked from seeing details about medical conditions and treatment if they do not need these details to perform their duties.
Since medical error is an ongoing, prevalent threat to good patient care, having data stored in the cloud allows physicians to collaborate and understand different treatment options. Or if there is a handover of patient care during a shift change, everyone has access to the same updated information for improved continuity of care.
It makes sense to integrate cloud storage into your healthcare organization’s operations. We can help, so contact us today at Reliant Data Solutions to find out more about your options.
