RAMSEY, N.J., Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help medical providers provide the best possible care, healthcare IT solutions company, Comport, explains the importance of enterprise storage solutions for hospitals.
Hospitals deal with huge amounts of data on a daily basis, and over time, the expansion of medical records and other files can start to become unmanageable. In order to protect data and allow medical personnel to operate more efficiently, enterprise storage solutions are a necessity.
Listed below are a few reasons why enterprise-level cloud storage is so beneficial.
Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions. Hospitals are routinely dealing with patient information that is crucial for treatment but must remain private. The healthcare industry is also seeing an increase in targeted cyber-attacks due to the value a single medical record can provide criminals. A disaster where data is compromised or lost can cost hospitals, from HIPPA fines to a lack of patient data for critical care, healthcare organizations can simply not afford to be without their data. Enterprise storage will backup data to the cloud on a regular basis, which means a disaster can be quickly rolled back to restore critical information.
Archiving Data. There is a lot of information that healthcare organizations must maintain, but that doesn't necessarily need to be easily accessible. Information on patients from years ago or outdated internal documents might need to be maintained, but keeping them readily available in on-site storage can take up a significant amount of space and come at a significant cost. Newer enterprise storage allows hospitals to maintain data they need, managing critical data and support data differently to save costs and create healthcare efficiencies.
Improved Patient Experience. The benefits of enterprise storage extend beyond simple data management. Creating an enterprise storage solutions that can house all medical and business data in the same location can create better results. Providers can now have all patient data at their fingertips when they need it, without needing to track down data. One critical missing piece of data can mean the difference between a successful treatment and a lawsuit.
In addition, less time spend finding additional documents or files means more time committed to providing patients with the best quality of care. So, not only do enterprise storage solutions make a big difference when it comes to keeping track of information and keeping it secure, they also play a direct role in keeping the hospital running efficiently.
