IT Services to Enable Transformation in Healthcare
Healthcare organizations such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, diagnostic services, and surgical centers are facing industry-wide disruption that aims to lower costs, reduce friction, and deliver innovation. At the same time, consumers are demanding choice, value, and connected digital experiences from their healthcare providers. Legislation to enable patients to price shop will usher in changes to the competitive landscape. All these challenges are exacerbated by the threat of cyberattacks, aging IT systems, regulatory requirements, and opportunities presented by telemedicine and connected medical devices.

What Your Health Organization Needs
Enhance Patient Experiences
Consumers are starting to view healthcare like any other purchase. To engage them, your healthcare organization needs to deliver a fully connected experience, make your services more accessible, and provide the information patients need to improve their health. Patients expect portals to access their healthcare records and manage appointments, while providers need ways to share data securely – whether from medical devices or communication with other providers and healthcare services.
Cloud Advisory Services
Our experts can help determine the right mix of cloud technologies to transform your organization, enabling innovation and rapid responses to new business challenges.
Manage Rapid Data Growth
Data volumes in healthcare are growing nearly 50% annually. Patients, providers, and payers depend upon secure, free-flowing data exchange for care coordination. Value-based care is pressuring healthcare business leaders to create compelling consumer channels and generate business intelligence to reduce costs and improve outcomes. Adoption of IoT medical devices continues, along with telehealth and remote patient monitoring.
Your IT infrastructure may be holding you back if it is outdated, complicated, or inflexible. Compliance mandates and data security requirements are a big challenge. A cost-effective IT infrastructure solution can deliver more value to your business while also reducing capital expenses.
Ingest and analyze large data sets quickly to better understand how to improve patient care and drive business revenue. Access patient information stored in a secure, private cloud.
Get visibility and intelligence in real-time to improve patient engagement, patient safety, health insights for personalized medicine, billing, and business operations.
Secure Critical Patient Data
Unauthorized access to health records provides cybercriminals valuable information with which to obtain new credit cards, bank accounts, and prescription medications. Healthcare is a top target, with 82% of U.S. hospitals experiencing a significant cyber attack in a year. Balancing consumers’ digital expectations while keeping their personal health information (PHI) secure is mission critical.
Your healthcare delivery organization needs to grow while maintaining customer trust. Your patients expect to access their information online, and your staff needs to use mobile devices to access patient data – all while news headlines report yet another medical office or hospital hit by ransomware.
TierPoint helps many healthcare delivery organizations comply with data storage and access regulations such as:
- HIPAA/HITRUST (health and patient protection)
- SOC + HITRUST (health and patient audits)
- PCI-DSS (payment card information)
Security and Compliance
There is no compliance without securing your systems first. Security encompasses everything we do at TierPoint. Our experts can help design and configure solutions to meet your compliance needs.
Colocation and Managed Services
Store your business records and applications in a secure, compliant data center with world-class physical security, cybersecurity, and managed services – and allow your team to focus on building innovative healthcare experiences.
Streamline IT Infrastructure
Through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and growth over time, your healthcare IT infrastructure may be pieced together from disparate and disconnected systems; specialized healthcare IT software, such as Epic or Cerner; and a multitude of patient-care applications. At the same time, the move to value-based care is driving a need for a scalable, stable, and streamlined IT environment where data flows easily and efficiently. Many healthcare providers are due for an IT overhaul, weighed down by legacy systems that burden staff instead of improving performance.
Colocation and Managed Hosting
Consolidate data centers and extend the value of your IT investments by collocating in one of our SSAE 18 SOC 1, SOC 2, HIPAA, and PCI DSS v3.2 audited data centers.
Stay competitive and deliver on patient and staff expectations with a secure cloud-based infrastructure to provide you with a modern IT infrastructure, improved performance, and digital transformation.
