The Only Constant is Change
The healthcare landscape is continuously evolving and there is a lot to keep up with in order to be cutting-edge… or even just to stay current. New trends in healthcare such as value-based care, precision medicine, and consumerism mean that healthcare organizations need to adapt quickly and efficiently.
Healthcare organizations are looking to new technologies to enable them to address these challenges and continue delivering safe, quality patient care. For many healthcare organizations, utilizing the cloud is the answer.
Optimizing IT Infrastructures with Cloud
Cloud technology is and will remain a crucial piece of IT investment. Cloud provides a foundation for achieving digital transformation and implementing new, innovative technologies. The cloud enables enterprises of all sizes and across all industries to increase their capacity, go to market faster, and leverage built-in security and compliance features.
Healthcare organizations are making larger investments, especially in data analytics technologies. It takes the right strategy and the right partner to make those investments count.
Why Healthcare IT is Leveraging Red Hat
Demand during the COVID-19 pandemic has left B2B healthcare industry manufacturers and distributors struggling to keep up. Subsequently, many organizations have discovered gaps in areas of their business such as ecommerce, site experience, product information management (PIM), and more.
Red Hat cloud solutions offer consistent, enterprise-class environments that enable customers to bridge the physical and virtual environments of their data centers and public clouds. Red Hat offers a flexible, open IT infrastructure and enables quick adaptation to respond to change while simplifying IT and controlling costs.
Many top healthcare organizations are also leveraging Red Hat solutions to protect their sensitive patient data. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is the leading open-source operating system that provides built-in security features to support the changing healthcare landscape. It offers a foundation from which you can scale existing apps and quickly roll out emerging technologies. When RHEL is combined with automation technology, healthcare organizations can automate security checks. It uses a HIPAA-specific profile to find vulnerabilities and immediately remediate any issues.
Perficient Project Spotlight
For example, Perficient recently leveraged Red Hat OpenShift to deploy an end-to-end continuous delivery pipeline and a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution that improved the velocity of application delivery at a large healthcare payer. In addition to standing up the OpenShift platform. We also assisted in re-architecting several core sales and membership applications to demonstrate how to leverage the cloud-based architecture components. This allowed elastic scale within these applications and supported multi-tenant deployments for several applications.
Since implementing these capabilities and improving multiple processes, the organization decreased developer onboarding time and increased the speed-to-market of application development.
