The long migration to electronic health records (EHRs) in the U.S. is set to speed up with the funding authorized by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. But what are the specific risks when clinicians can’t access electronic health records? How far-reaching are the consequences when EHR data is lost, or its integrity is compromised? This paper looks at the mission-critical role of EHR systems, and introduces availability solutions that build in uptime protection to ensure the continuity of operation that both caregivers and patients can depend on.
The right electronic health records can dramatically improve patient care, profit, and practice workflow. Learn how to manage the electronic health records selection process to achieve your desired results and avoid several common pitfalls.
A hospitalís network is the foundation for the critical applications that run on it, where most of those applications are related to the hospitals core businesses. The return on the investments made in EMR (electronic medical records), PACS (picture archiving and communication system), clinical imaging systems and workstations on wheels, can only be truly realized if those assets are always available to the people in need in a reliable, secure and highly optimized way, at a fixed location, or while mobile.

This eBook explores what your enterprise tech stack needs to look like to properly find, guide and keep patients for life through meaningful engagement.
There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three Vís of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
