Healthcare organizations are experiencing an explosion of data growth. From electronic medical records to digital images to data from connected machines, you gather more data more rapidly than any other industry.
Data managed by the average hospital is likely to grow to 665 terabytes by 2015, up from 168 terabytes in 20101. That will slow you down. Information management helps you get your data under control.
Too much of a good thing is a bad thing – and 665 terabytes can be a bad thing. Storing massive amounts of data places your organization at significant risk. Storage costs become excessive, the ability to meet compliance deadlines is compromised and a lack of oversight can expose your hospital or organization to malicious activity. Whether financial, legal, security, productivity, or reputational risk, there is a high likelihood that your organization is currently trending toward an information ecosystem that is not sustainable. It is time to cut the data.
Healthcare organizations must gain visibility into the data you have, take action through defensible deletion and archiving, gaining control so your most important assets don’t become a big, costly burden. It's about creating healthy IT habits.
Healthcare organizations need constant access to data and applications – otherwise that information loses its value, while patient care is placed at risk. Your backup and recovery infrastructure should be fast to deploy, flexible, and purpose-built to protect against unwanted downtime through resilient high availability and reliable recovery for critical business services.
Information availability is about access to the data you need, when you need, no matter where it resides. How fit is your environment?
Healthcare organizations create a massive amount of data, but the right information will save us all. Let Veritas show you how to harness the power of your information.
