Cloud migration is top of mind for healthcare organizations. From the costs savings to the improvement in patient care that comes from data portability there are more reasons than not to ditch the data center and move to the cloud.
But while migrating to the cloud sounds simple enough it can be a complex task for any organization. For healthcare IT teams, the process of cloud migration comes with complexities not seen in other industries. Given the nature of healthcare, IT teams can’t just shut down the facility over the weekend to carry out the migration, moreover, there are strict clinical data security requirements that must adhered to.
However, there are ways to ensure that the transition happens quickly and smoothly. Experts from NetApp and Amazon Web Services (AWS) collaborated to identify the five steps that healthcare organizations should take to successfully migrate all three subsystems – compute, storage, and networking – to the cloud as well as identifying the right tools for the job.
For each phase – from discovery to operations – the cloud migration experts outline the importance of the step, how it connects to the next step, as well as how it contributes to the overall success not just of the migration but to optimizing operations to deliver the best return on investment. You’ll also find a cloud migration checklist and learn first hand from healthcare information exchange, Healthix, as their team shares experiences with cloud migration.
