Driving Transformation in Healthcare IT at Ignite

Sign in to queue


While it's not exactly breaking news, it's truer than ever: healthcare relies on IT. Like scaffolding on a building project, IT provides healthcare organizations (and initiatives) the structure and support to scale reach, communicate efficiently, and drive progress that's increasingly needed by a growing human population.

At Ignite, we'll fuel progress by going beyond topics of implementation and maintenance to an exploration of innovations and best practices that improve and even save lives. We'll cover a spectrum of relevant themes—including big data, hybrid cloud, productivity, and mobility—in expert-led sessions that drive the leading edge. Join us!

Big data: where the opportunity really lies

The more we know about people—where and how they live, eat, exercise, spend money, vacation, et cetera—the more we can apply algorithms to predict their behaviors and guide them, marrying devices, data, applications, social media, and more. Data is where it all begins. If we don't have the data, progress is that much harder to forge.

Hybrid cloud bringing efficiencies for the long term

Gone are the days of doubting privacy and security in the Microsoft Cloud. (Microsoft is the first major cloud provider to achieve compliance with ISO 27018, a stringent international certification ensuring strict practices for protecting the privacy of customer data.*)

Here to stay is broad-scale investment in cloud-based infrastructures, including hybrid cloud. By leveraging the cloud, large healthcare organizations can speed development cycles and better manage IT costs including those that are datacenter-related. We're talking about accelerating progress while lowering costs and boosting productivity.

More progress, faster, with cloud-based productivity and R&D

When data scientists can run analytical models faster and more accurately, and collaborate more easily with other researchers, discoveries and innovations can proliferate. With a cloud-first approach—using Azure HDInsight, Azure Machine Learning, Office 365, SharePoint, and Skype for Business—healthcare organizations can prioritize investment in medical research and care versus spending on servers.
