Healthcare organizations desperately want to take advantage of the benefits enabled by cloud computing (for example, improved agility and reduced TCO). However, there are significant concerns with using industry-agnostic cloud service providers; typically based on multi-tenant infrastructures. I'm seeing a lot of interest however, in the "Community Cloud" deployment model. Cloud service providers that are focused specifically on the healthcare domain, and fully comprehend/support the associated regulatory and availability requirements are in the best position to deliver these benefits in a secure, compliant manner.
For example, Peake Healthcare Innovations, an affiliate of Harris Corporation and Johns Hopkins Medicine, has partnered with Intel and VMware to create a secure cloud solution for medical image management. This solution will transform the quality and delivery of patient care by enabling clinicians to quickly access health information when and where it is needed, across a wide variety of client devices. Leveraging the expertise of Peake and their affiliates/partners, healthcare organizations can reduce the TCO of their medical imaging solution, and spend more time on initiatives that will improve patient care rather than maintaining infrastructure.
If you will be at HIMSS12 next week, come by the Intel booth (#7305) to see a live demonstration of the PeakeSecure(TM) Image Management from the Cloud solution and learn more about how Intel can help you build secure, efficient and reliable cloud solutions.
Watch the below video to see more on this solution.
