Dell company Virtustream announced Tuesday that it is launching a Healthcare Cloud service via its enterprise cloud product. The healthcare cloud, revealed at the Dell EMC World 2017 conference in Las Vegas, promises to provide “cloud-based hosting of mission critical healthcare platforms and applications on Virtustream Enterprise Cloud in a HIPAA/HITECH compliant environment,” according to a statement from Virtustream.
The new offering aims to arm healthcare organizations with the cloud infrastructure and managed services necessary to implement and maintain digital transformations.
“Today’s healthcare sector faces many pressure points. Providers must modernize their IT infrastructure to support their evolving clinical care and patient management systems, while aging infrastructure and limited staff mean they’re often completely consumed with managing legacy day-to-day operations,” said Michael Hoch, vice president of Virtustream in the written statement. “With our latest offering, Virtustream introduces an enterprise-class solution to manage healthcare’s most complex and mission-critical applications, thus freeing healthcare providers not only to embrace the digital future, but also to focus on their core mission of saving patient lives.”
