Aimed to empower healthcare providers achieve world-class outcomes in a rapidly changing healthcare environment, healthcare real estate development firm, Simone Health, uses their knowledge share how cloud computing helps internal hospital communications.
Cloud computing uses a network of remote servers through the internet to store, manage and process data. As opposed to the previously used method of storing data and information on a local server, this approach for internal hospital communication provides more flexibility, security, and streamline connection.
- Flexibility. Cloud computing provides full access to vital information anywhere and anytime. The flexibility of instant access, as well as an unlimited capacity for data allows for healthcare providers to be able to accurately address patient needs in a shorter amount of time.
- Security. Security concerns are without a doubt raised when it comes to the storage of confidential patient information within a healthcare facility. Where hospitals choose to store their information is essential to keeping important patient details safe and secure from outside sources. Cloud computing is a HIPAA business associate and has advanced security measures put in place to monitor and maintain the confidentiality of healthcare data. Designed to protect any health information or medical records healthcare providers choose to store within the cloud, cloud computing provides a better level of security than ever before.
- Streamline Collaboration. Streamlining collaboration is another benefit of utilizing cloud computing. By using cloud software, healthcare professionals can now edit, collaborate, and comment on the same documents, at the same time regardless of location. This advanced level of collaboration cuts out any confusion between doctors and nurses in order to achieve a seamless healthcare experience from start to finish.
Cloud computing provides numerous tools to improve internal communications within healthcare facilities. Increased security measures and extreme flexibility for holding and sharing information, as well as more advanced ways for healthcare teams to communicate will undoubtedly reshape the healthcare industry for years to come.
