Healthcare orgs increasing use of hybrid cloud

More than two-thirds (68%) of healthcare organisations are under pressure to embrace digital transformation to meet growing patient care demands, according to research from Nutanix.

A survey of healthcare companies across APJ, Europe, EMEA and the Americas found that organisations are embracing cloud computing to achieve these goals.

Healthcare companies report that they are increasing their adoption of the cloud to be able to deliver innovations including personalised health care (52%) and AI assistants (44%).

Meanwhile, 55% cite regulations governing data storage as a top factor influencing future cloud model adoption at their organisations.

A wide majority (87%) of healthcare companies identified hybrid cloud as their preferred operating model, with organisations choosing hybrid cloud as the most secure option 33% of the time. Meanwhile, healthcare companies plan to increase their hybrid usage by an average of a net 44%, with use of traditional data centre deployments expected to fall 35% over the same period.

“Healthcare organisations today are looking to improve patient experience, increase data interoperability and deliver both virtual and value-based care,” Nutanix Healthcare Strategist Cheryl Rodenfels said.

“These outcomes cannot be achieved without harnessing the power of flexible and secure cloud infrastructure. A hybrid cloud model enables IT teams to secure patient data and ensure regulatory compliance while allowing healthcare providers to continue delivering advanced technological care to extend patient experience to the digital space.”
