Examining the Hyperscaler Impact on Healthcare’s Future
Multicloud deployment models are becoming commonplace across a variety of industries due to the cost and staff time required for on-premises hardware refreshes, software upgrades and data center management efforts. Healthcare is no exception, and many health systems are exploring a variety of cloud operating models (many of which include hyperscalers) to reduce expenditure, increase application efficiencies, and free up IT resources for value-based initiatives.
This focus group, led by Dr. Tim Calahan, Field CTO, Virtustream Healthcare Cloud, will discuss a variety of topics related to the use of hyperscalers for mission-critical healthcare applications. Primarily:
• The confidence in using hyperscalers such as Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, and more for healthcare application hosting
• Opinions on multi-tenancy, exploring both the positive and negative impact it can have on your healthcare systems
• What the first steps towards hyperscaler use looks like, such as offloading disaster recovery responsibilities, medical imaging hosting and management, etc.
• The effectiveness of pairing hyperscaler use with clouds purpose-built for EHR hosting as part of a multicloud deployment model
