Healthcare IT infrastructure must serve as a method of connecting patients, providers, and services to ensure seamless quality of care. Health Services organizations are re-architecting their IT systems to store new types of healthcare data and to save on the hours required by clinicians to keep connected with patients and pharmacies. This data must be accurate to ensure patient health. As Healthcare organizations re-architect, they are also looking to dramatically reduce costs of operations and infrastructure, all while increasing services like proactively responding to “outbreaks.”
Riak takes the complexity out of building and deploying infrastructure to store healthcare data while reducing operations and infrastructure costs.
Riak is built to handle the healthcare industry’s mission-critical data. It is designed for resiliency, scale, and ease-of-operations ensuring you can grow quickly and access critical data, no matter what happens behind the scenes. This makes it an ideal fit for the healthcare industry.
NHS in the UK recently replaced the centralized database of all patient health and prescription data called SPINE. This is a massive system with information requested and amended more than 2.6 billion times a year. Riak KV was selected to not only cut costs, but also to improve the performance and reliability of the system.
DHA created the Common Medicine Card to centrally manage critical health and prescription data for the country. The DHA selected Riak KV to support this centralized system due to its high availability and economies of scale, allowing them to focus funds on patient care rather than on large IT infrastructure.
