Migrating to the cloud can help transform the way healthcare services are run; with digital solutions, the healthcare providers can offer quicker and more seamless services, in turn improving patient outcomes.
The pandemic has shown that digital technology and data have become indispensable tools for healthcare professionals as they adapt to changes across their organisations. Many healthcare leaders are reassessing their plans and imagining a future where technology is used as a key enabler in helping to overcome the challenges caused by the pandemic.
Digital transformation has been priority under the ‘Personalised Health & Care 2020’ policy; a strategy published by the National Information Board, outlining how the health and care system will use data and technology to transform outcomes for patients and citizens in the coming years. There is a fair amount of work that has to be done before migrating to the cloud, understanding which applications are best suited for cloud? Which applications can be re-architected or re-platformed? Which on-premises services can be turned off and decommissioned? These considerations need to take effect to drive efficiencies in the cloud.
How can healthcare providers benefit from cloud?
How to avoid re-platforming clinical applications when migrating to cloud
One issue that has previously held some healthcare providers back from migrating to cloud is the inability to continue using clinical applications that were never designed to be able to operate in a cloud environment. Previously the only options would be to re-architect or re-platform them, both of which could be costly and time consuming. But thankfully there’s now another option.
The Azure VMware Solution enables healthcare providers to migrate to cloud while enabling them to continue running their clinical applications without re-platforming them. It enables IT teams to seamlessly move VMware-based workloads from the data centre to Azure and integrate VMware environments with Azure. This means you can continue to manage your existing environments with the same VMware tools you already know, while modernising your applications with Azure native services.
