Empowering Health Professionals with Scalable and Affordable IT

In an industry where quality and convenience are non-negotiable, capitalizing on digital trends is crucial to eUntitled design (3).jpgnsuring business longevity. Healthcare organizations face countless IT issues that challenge the way they operate and care for patients. Evolving patient expectations for care delivery, proliferating mobility, rising demand for data access, and an increasingly patient-centric outcome economy are just some of the trends that are driving IT modernization in the healthcare sector. In fact, according to Health IT Analytics, healthcare delivery/IT is expected to grow by 45.08% in 2017, followed by telemedicine which will increase 18.03% over 2016.

Data security, 24/7 availability, optimized care delivery, and compliance with regulatory mandates require ongoing innovation and substantial IT resources. Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) must find new and effective ways to accelerate business operations in order to compete:

  • Supporting a range of applications with varying data requirements, both on-premises and in the cloud
  • Balancing system availability and cost against IT budget and manpower limitations
  • Capturing and analyzing rising volumes of healthcare data to streamline data-driven decision-making
  • Improving collaboration both internally and with partnerships (i.e. physicians, pharmaceuticals, and payers)
  • Protecting sensitive patient data while conforming to HIPAA regulations
  • Meeting patient satisfaction standards and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandates efficiently and cost-effectively

Healthcare SMBs must invest in an infrastructure that allows them to quickly process healthcare applications, analyze data, and enable effective collaboration, while scaling to accommodate future growth. High-performance solutions such as HPE ProLiant servers are empowering medical researchers, doctors, and scientists with a platform that is fast to deploy and easy to scale. With numerous price points and compute capabilities to choose from, HPE ProLiant enables optimal application performance and security at an affordable price. These systems can come preloaded with an open source operating system—ClearOS—to deliver an even simpler and more affordable operating system at little to no cost.

ClearOS software offers over 100 applications to choose from, allowing healthcare SMBs to customize their IT environments to satisfy evolving patient needs and regulatory requirements, execute complex workloads, and accelerate healthcare operations across the board. Those who adopt ClearOS will have access to an intuitive web-based user interface which makes IT innovation and automation faster and easier than ever. As a result, this flexible open source platform can complement an existing infrastructure and serve as a network/gateway device or build an SMB’s first server.

With “point and click” application deployment and simplified IT management capabilities, organizations are creating a right-sized environment that is tailored to their unique business needs. And by efficiently allocating IT spending and resources, healthcare SMBs are refocusing their efforts to ensure patient satisfaction and business growth.

For today’s SMBs, implementing effective small business IT solutions is key to optimizing care delivery and realizing superior levels of performance. Choosing the right scalable and affordable technologies is the first step toward achieving their business goals, and together, HPE ProLiant servers and ClearOS applications are enabling these organizations to develop a secure, productive, and profitable business.
