NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital transformation is happening in all industries, and it will happen in healthcare whether healthcare IT professionals are ready or not. Electronic health records are moving to the cloud, telehealth is becoming a business requirement, and progressive new technologies like deep machine learning and digital pathology interpretation will soon become mainstream. The question is, will healthcare IT organizations be ready? According to Logicalis Healthcare Solutions, the healthcare-focused arm of Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), the key is to create a digital foundation that paves the way for the implementation of these new technologies. To help, the healthcare IT experts at Logicalis US have created a downloadable white paper that explores the strategic use of cloud, automation and managed services strategies as foundational components along this path. The paper, "Optimizing Every Healthcare IT Dollar," is available for immediate download by healthcare organizations scheduling a meeting with Logicalis US (Booth #11507) at HIMSS18: http://ow.ly/sH9x30if3Wx.
"To deliver the technology that supports everything from hyperconverged data centers to precision medicine or genomics, for example, requires the full focus and attention of a unique breed of IT specialists," says Michael Riley, Practice Leader, Logicalis Healthcare Solutions. "And while these people may already be on a hospital's IT staff, if they're bogged down with the daily operation of the provider's IT infrastructure, the intellectual bandwidth the organization needs to tackle the implementation and deployment of new clinical or research technologies simply isn't available."
Logicalis experts say the use of managed services, IT service management (ITSM), and the cloud, however, can help healthcare IT organizations take those all-important next steps toward a more efficient, secure, digitally enabled future that is ready to explore, implement and support the advanced technologies being developed and brought to market today.
