Is Healthcare Ready for the Public Cloud?

It’s a common refrain for IT teams: “Do more with less”. Few industries feel the acute consequences of constrained resources more deeply than the healthcare industry; after all, lives can be at stake. Healthcare organizations have long been using published apps, if not complete virtual desktops, for years. However, today they face a dual challenge: how to overcome the complexity and high costs of outdated VDI solutions, and what to do with the cloud. For these organizations, where security and privacy concerns are paramount, use of the public cloud has given IT execs pause.

To be able to “do more with less”, healthcare organizations can modernize their legacy app publishing and VDI solutions and employ the public cloud for at least some of their workloads. This allows for more agile organization growth and reduces CapEx and OpEx. Moreover, many healthcare CIOs are arriving at the conclusion that the major public cloud providers can do a better job of securing patient data than their on-premises datacenter infrastructure can provide.  Underscoring this evolving thinking, a HIMSS Analytics 2016 Cloud Survey reported that healthcare organizations are increasingly trusting of cloud platforms with protected health information. Combine stronger security and improved patient care with disaster recovery and compliance benefits, and modern, cloud-native VDI plus public cloud datacenter infrastructure is transformational for healthcare.

In an HIT Infrastructure article published yesterday, “Healthcare Cloud-Based VDI Adoption Reduces Infrastructure Costs” Elizabeth Dowd highlights how Workspot’s innovations in VDI architecture plus our industry-first, fixed cost (including Azure!) desktop-as-a-service on Azure (DaaS) solution is delivering significant benefits to healthcare organizations:
