What do you think about new technologies like cloud and virtualization?
Faced with a plethora of challenges, healthcare organizations are constantly asking IT to do more, despite tight IT and operational budgets. The future demands of operating in a networked environment under healthcare reform are at the top of mind for IT managers. To meet these challenges, provider IT organizations will need to take advantage of cloud service offerings to maintain and support existing, installed applications and leverage existing resources by moving data, applications, and services to the cloud. This helps ensure that applications will have high availability and performance and that workforce management efforts remain on track and in compliance with regulations.

By using hosting and cloud services, organizations can reduce compliance risk, troubleshoot applications and proactively identify problems. Cloud services can help healthcare organizations right on track with their road map for workforce management through predictable and controlled change and version management. The concepts of virtualization and consolidation in IT environments can help firms improve performance and gain efficiency by improving the coordination of resources. Besides reducing overhead and administration costs, virtualization can also help free up IT staff to focus on strategic initiatives by improving management tools and controls.

300+ employees.
