    Healthcare Cloud Evolution

     April 26, 2017  11am – 12pm CST


PHI storage and security sure has come a long way!

Remember the days when healthcare professionals relied on risky tools and gadgets to save and share sensitive data? Much of the data infrastructure in healthcare today has lacked investment, often because it is funded by restricted budgets. It’s been typified by a piecemeal approach amid concerns over data security– but that’s quickly changing.

Healthcare organizations are quickly adopting cloud technologies, which are scalable and adoptable, to become more PHI-centric and data-driven. Join Scott Whyte, Oxana Pickeral, Chris Bowen and Matt Ferrari who will be discussing how the cloud is transforming the way healthcare is practiced and the areas they think the evolution will have the most impact.
Your questions will be answered – live, free and in a digital format! You will leave the discussion with strategic insight and tools for the healthcare cloud revolution.

You will leave the conversation with answers to your questions along with:

  • Real-world, security best practices for when you decide to move to the cloud
  • Key considerations to build a PHI-capable Cloud strategy
  • How to use a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) in your favor
