If you are a hospital administrator looking forward to digitizing and automating your practice, by now you must have come to the conclusion that cloud-based solutions are better in comparison to on-premise ones. Now arises the question - which cloud server to choose?
While the market offers you plenty of options, this article focuses on the benefits of choosing a cloud server like MS Azure. Let’s dive in!
MS Azure Security Center The Microsoft Azure Security Cloud center offers solutions such as Advanced Threat Protection and Threat Intelligence reports and Information Protection that ensures all hospital data is protected.
Network segmentation and encryption makes sure that every byte of transmitted data remains secure from outside threat. The threat monitoring agents that come with the security center provide insights into the tactics employed by attackers.
Azure was also the first to accept the new international standard for cloud privacy, ISO 27018.
Easier transition Since most hospitals use Windows-based software in their on-premise documentation, Azure implementation is easier and causes less disruption to workflow.
Cost-effective Most hospitals hesitate to make the transition from an on-premise database to the cloud because the cloud is believed to be highly expensive and therefore unaffordable to small and local medical practices.
With Azure, you only have to pay for what you use. Their pay-as-you-go policy helps you better manage your IT budget. The cloud environment also reduces the hardware and maintenance costs of on-premise systems.
Hybrid capabilities Azure provides numerous hybrid connections such as VPN, ExpressRoute, CDNs, and caches.
But why merely digitize your practice on the cloud, when you can get a full-fledged cloud-based clinic management system that can streamline your operations and reduce staff labor, all the while increasing revenue without compromising on the quality of patient experience?
