Managing the Healthcare Data Deluge
Our nation’s rapid move from paper to a digital native posture for its medical records is being driven by significant regulatory and payment reforms -- from initiatives such as Meaningful Use and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This once-in-a-generation transformation is creating a healthcare data deluge that is both unstoppable and exponentially growing. Both the amounts and kinds of medical data we need to manage in modern IT environments are unlike anything we’ve seen before. Given how important data is and the fact that paper-based backups are no longer acceptable, each provider must develop a strategy to manage its healthcare information lifecycle in a manner that guarantees availability, responsiveness, and reliability of data.
