Healthcare services deal with a lot of sensitive data on a daily basis and that data continues to pile up on a daily basis. This leads to the requirement of an efficient storage and management system. Storage and management are one but not the only concern of the healthcare industry. There are a lot more challenges faced when it comes to storage management, backup and recovery and speedy access to diagnoses.
- Large chunks of data – If we consider a hospital environment, there’s a lot of data coming from various different departments. There’s X-ray data, clinical information, various departmental data and more. For some patients, all of this data is spread across various different departments. In order to effectively care for the patient, this entire collection of data needs to be effectively stored, shared, accessible and recoverable (in case of a disaster). All of this data demands a huge storage space and that is the challenge as even with some cloud providers, there are storage size limitations.
- Data management – Managing huge amounts of data gathered from different departments. The data has to be accessible at all times, it has to be recoverable and it has to be secure. Efficient data management also translates to cost efficient processes.
- Security – Medical information is a target for hackers and people intending to incur damage and ransom money. That makes the security of the information crucial. Securing this data, especially due to its scale, becomes a very challenging task especially when considering traditional storage systems and technologies.
- Data Recovery – Losing a patient’s data means loss of reputation and in some cases; it may even endanger someone’s life. In other words, losing medical information is out of the question. So data recovery in case of a disaster (whether man-made or natural) is absolutely necessary. However, having a reliable and trustworthy disaster recovery service that can ensure recovery of data is the challenge.
- Accessibility – With data scattered from different departments, branch offices, it becomes a challenge to make all of it immediately accessible.
