While financial, retail, and other industries have been quick to implement cloud solutions to improve the customer experience, cut costs, and introduce new levels of agility, concerns about security have delayed adoption in healthcare organizations. As a result, healthcare providers are missing out on improved productivity and efficiency. Fortunately, the adoption of Desktop as a Service (DaaS) helps remedy these issues and delivers the benefits of an agile cloud solution.
DaaS represents a way for healthcare organizations to gain quick results that deliver immediate improvements. Here are a few ways DaaS is helping organizations like yours “catch up” in their digital transformation efforts:
Security: It’s important to address security first, since it played a key role in delaying the adoption of cloud solutions for many healthcare organizations. DaaS provides superior security protection to your organization because few hospitals, clinics, or other services can maintain the level of security that cloud providers offer.
Ben Gayheart, CEO of Effortless, stated: “From armed guards at physical locations to encryption and detailed monitoring, the security with DaaS will be superior to anything you can maintain in-house. The design of DaaS is inherently more secure than traditional systems, particularly when you consider that many breaches occur due to lost or stolen employee laptops. With DaaS, a hacker must access the cloud data center, and they have no access through a stolen laptop or tablet.”
Cost savings: The amount of cost savings you’ll realize with DaaS compounds over time. When you implement DaaS, there’s no major installation cost, and you won’t need to purchase additional hardware. You also won’t be maintaining the hardware or updating the systems. All of these aspects are handled by the provider.
As a result, you’ll receive a consistent invoice each month without any surprise charges for new hardware or a software update. Best yet, you’ll be able to categorize the spending as monthly operating expenses.
Collaborative tools: Healthcare is increasingly collaborative, and DaaS helps your team members share files, make decisions more efficiently with real-time communication, and access the DaaS system from anywhere. This means doctors and nurses working on multiple floors are able to function consistently and suffer fewer interruptions to their progress.
DaaS presents a valuable way for your organization to immediately and securely capture the benefits of the cloud. For more information, contact us at Effortless. Take a look at this free download to learn more about the benefits of cloud solutions.
