Navigating a Successful Shift to Value-Based Care
Whitepaper Jul 02, 2021
On-premises hosting has been the most popular deployment environment for Electronic Health Record (EHR) delivery for many years. However, organizations that continue to ignore the benefits of cloud hosting are putting themselves at a significant disadvantage in terms of data security, scalability, cost, and stakeholder satisfaction. Now, Tegria is pleased to announce that we can offer cloud hosting solutions for Epic and MEDITECH EHR customers. Tegria has the experience, solutions, and innovation to enhance patient care through the development of a customized strategy for your EHR deployment.
Gartner reports that by 2022, 75 percent of all healthcare provider organizations will have a formal cloud strategy in place. At the same time, cybersecurity threats are on the rise and data extortion attempts are now occurring in at least 70 percent of all ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations. Cloud hosted solutions can protect hospitals against the dual threats of hacking and data breaches while defending against physical threats such as fire and water.
Transitioning to the cloud offers lower fixed costs without the need for a 3–5 year refresh cycle. Cloud hosting also ensures that healthcare IT professionals can focus on bringing innovation and value to the patient experience with a predictable fee, rather than the inherent cost variability associated with managing data centers.
As technology continues to evolve, hospitals need flexible EHR platforms that can be customized and scaled to meet specific business needs quickly and easily. A custom strategy from Tegria will provide the resource flexibility to meet the specific needs of your hospital—all while providing managed 24/7 custom support and IT coverage.
