Strategic Collaboration Among Providers, Payers and Patients

Healthcare organizations are moving towards value-based care that requires strategic collaboration among providers, payers and patients. The business priority to improve patient experience and comply with government mandates increased the need for higher data interoperability and the ability to deliver virtual and remote services. This is driving healthcare organization to adopt and migrate to the cloud. Healthcare organizations especially need the flexibility, ease of maintenance and security that the cloud delivers. A hybrid cloud model enables Healthcare organization to secure patient data and ensure regulatory compliance while continuing to use advanced technologies without impacting regular business operation. 

At Agile Health, our cloud computing and migration experts along with our healthcare subject matter experts are helping healthcare organization in adopting the cloud and taking full advantage of it.

The key to successful cloud migration and return on investment lies in building the right cloud strategy, executing it and using the right methodology. Our cloud and healthcare experts work in defining the right cloud adoption strategy and cloud migration strategy and help you in executing the plan using our DDMM methodology.

PBM in Healthcare

Define:  This definition phase is the process of evaluating the business needs and the potential benefits that can be expected in moving to the cloud. This phase also defines the prioritized list of applications and systems that will provide the best return on investment in moving to the cloud.  Based on the identified needs and benefits, Return of Investment (ROI) is calculated and the Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) is established in a very objective way.

Design: Design phases where the cloud strategy and migration roadmap are put into action. Identification of the cloud vendor is performed based on the business needs and cloud strategy. Potential cloud vendors are then rated against the defined selection criteria. Cloud Readiness assessment is done, and Cloud Architecture is developed in phase. A cloud migration plan is developed.

Migrate: As outlined in the Migration plan, this phase is executed in an iterative manner. Cloud setup is done based on the baseline cloud architecture. The network, security, storage and other architecture level setup are performed. Once the basic cloud architecture is set up, resources will be moved based on the identified priority and also applying the dependency constraint. Thorough testing is performed to ensure not only the security, scalability, disaster recovery etc., but also to ascertain the performance of all business functions. 

Manage: In this phase, the key focus is on the manageability and maintainability of the cloud environment. Identify and automate the key areas such as auto-scaling, configuration, back-up, disaster recovery etc. This phase also focuses on the implementation of monitoring at both the infrastructure and application level and implement the necessary tools and techniques needed for efficient monitoring and triage.
