Healthcare can make a significant technological leap forward by focusing on infrastructure and the backbone of the technology needs to be brought up to the 21st century standards. The understanding of that infrastructure and technology, if you were to compare the infrastructure of Healthcare Provider organizations these days to even just a yesr or two ago, it would be like comparing Lincoln logs to granite slabs. They have just become so much better due to the HITECH Act.
Much more than just a network operations these days, new healthcare infrastructure is the central technology hub for the storing and monitoring of data, systems and applications. It is the vital nerve center for what network and systems departments do these days. Ultimately, there will be a need to store all of the healthcare data and that will be when a cloud based vendor will be able to dominate the market with a safe, reliable and fast storage and retrieval system and delivery of the data to and from hospital locations.
