IBM Storage in action at HIMSS17

Share this post:

Today, many healthcare enterprises find themselves dealing with too much data, delivering too little insight. And as we move forward, the challenge will grow. By 2020, it’s estimated that the amount of medical knowledge available to us will double every 73 days, and doctors may have to tackle 200 times the amount of medical data and facts that a human is capable of processing.

In addition to the tremendous growth in the volume of available data coming from various sources, patients will still expect personalized treatment, transparency, quality of service and accurate diagnoses based on the integration of all of that data at the lowest cost.

The massive digitization process of health records and information along with the rapidly changing regulatory environment and ongoing pressure to keep costs low increases the need to modernize and transform your storage environment across traditional and new workloads.

When patients are your top priority, what’s the best way to manage your medical data?

Focus on healthcare rather than on data centers

If you are looking to simplify IT, provide value at the lowest possible cost and increase agility in the data center in order to deliver high-quality personalized patient care — don’t miss the special sessions taking place at IBM Booth #1003 at the HIMSS17 Annual Conference & Exhibition February 19-23:

Medicat, a leading provider of healthcare information technology (HIT) to colleges and universities, delivers highly-available, secure and compliant cloud services.  In this session we will explore the technology infrastructure Medicat relies on to confidently deliver market-leading availability and performance as they meet continuing growth in demand for software as a service (SaaS) solutions.

  • Customer Case Studies: Personalized Healthcare with Integrated High Performance Systems from IBMWednesday February 22 at 12:00PM EST in Booth #1003
    For the last several years, world class healthcare providers have been utilizing high-performance compute and storage systems to make personalized healthcare possible. In this session, we will present customer success stories that demonstrate how IBM Software-Defined Infrastructure provides cost-effective data management across many storage devices, from flash to tape, to address the customer’s requirements for application performance and throughput, as well as for long-term data retention, all driven by policies.

Anytime, anywhere

Since healthcare organizations are coping with rampant data growth driven by unstructured data and unpredictable workload requirements, it’s time to explore new and efficient approaches to store, manage, secure, access and analyze medical data to transform your healthcare services and support your organization today and into the future.  A powerful storage foundation will ensure any necessary data is available when and where it’s needed in its most easily consumable form, enabling physicians and researchers to make the best clinical decisions.

You are invited to join our customer sessions at HIMSS17 and schedule a private meeting with IBM executives at the IBM Meeting Center.

Enjoy the conference and we hope to see you there!
