Instead of depending on localized servers and paper systems, cloud-based services can ensure that even the smallest organization has access to the latest security technology.

As cloud-based services become popular in the medical industry, it is imperative that organizations are vigilant about security. Despite strict regulations and heightened compliance, the 2012 HIMSS Analytics Report shows a steady rise in the amount of patient data breaches over the last six years. Though 96% of hospital administrators surveyed had conducted formal risk analysis on the security of patient data, 69% of organizations that reported data breaches had more than one breach and only 25% of organizations that reported a data breach updated their security plan. Healthcare organizations can address this problem by using private cloud based applications to host and store their data.
By outsourcing data hosting and management to the cloud, healthcare organizations can minimize the possibility of data breaches. Instead of depending on localized servers and paper systems, cloud-based services can ensure that even the smallest organization has access to the latest security technology. Yet it is crucial that healthcare organizations ensure they are outsourcing data to the right type of cloud.
