Next week, the Dell EMC Healthcare-Life Sciences team will join over 40,000+ health IT professionals, clinicians and executives from around the world at the HIMSS19 Annual Conference & Exhibition, the largest health IT event in the industry. This year’s conference theme is “Champions of Health Unite,” and Dell EMC is helping our customers and partners rise to the challenge of tackling complex issues like next-generation infrastructure, multi-cloud, IoT, high performance computing / artificial intelligence for clinical genomics and pathology, virtual / augmented reality, and cybersecurity. We will also highlight how our technology solutions can, and are, taking healthcare organizations to the next level – from the point of care to the data center to the cloud.
The explosion of healthcare data coming from EMR systems, connected devices, high-performance computing for precision medicine (i.e. clinical genomics, pathology), and IoT is forcing organizations to rethink their data strategies and next-generation infrastructure to future-proof their IT environments. To fully leverage the data capital residing across the healthcare ecosystem, we will also be emphasizing two important trends to unleash data: the rise of multi-cloud frameworks, and the need for an IoT strategy to support data analytics at the edge.
To optimize the use of data with timely access and a unified view of available data sets for safer patient care collaboration, healthcare organizations must advance their adoption of multi-cloud operating models for standardizing and automating common provisioning, deployment, monitoring, data protection and security services. A multi-cloud operating framework enables IT to become a broker of IT services as it provides the blueprint with the appropriate architectural approach and governance/standards to bring together private, hybrid, public and specialty cloud services into a single comprehensive, multi-cloud operating approach, while reducing risk and complexity.
Healthcare providers can also reduce their risk as they build out their healthcare IoT strategy to speed up ROI – from patient to provider to cloud. To take advantage of the IoT opportunity, organizations need to connect the physical world with the digital, starting with real-time monitoring for visibility, then adding analytics and eventually, automation. Each step builds confidence in the next. The IoT continuum spans the edge, distributed core and cloud, with zones of intelligence that perform analytics while it matters, where it matters and how it matters – optimizing value for the health system. In addition to IoT use cases for video monitoring and patient sitters, we will highlight an open, scalable platform that includes the ability to simplify data collection, manage devices on the network, centralize data storage, provide on-demand analytics, and integrate networking.
Leveraging our robust healthcare partner ecosystem and strategically aligned businesses, Dell EMC is helping healthcare organizations across the globe power their Heath IT, Precision Medicine, Connected Health, and Security transformations. The drivers of industry change continue to propel innovation across the patient care continuum: clinicians are looking to unlock the value of patient data with actionable analytic insights to make measurable impacts on patient care delivery, researchers require the latest genomic technologies to push the boundaries of individualized treatment plans, patients expect more involvement in their personal care, and care teams demand improved interoperability to enable timely access to the right information to make the accurate decisions at the point of care.
