One of the unique benefits of Claydata's e-health solution is unmatched accessibility. This is achieved through a novel cloud-based software-as-a-service (SAAS) concept, whereby all PuttyHealth modules - and the medical information that is handled by them - are served from a web-based data cloud. This means you can access (and interrogate, update and communicate) all aspects of your enterprise – booking, billing, communication, and electronic medical records (EMR) - from any device: desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, iPod or Android tablet.
Gartner's Cloud Computing Research Report defines cloud computing as
Cloud computing is an essential factor in modern information technology systems. Essentially, this is because cloud computing functionality reflects three trends in the contemporary world:
These factors are as relevant to the provision of effective healthcare as they are to any other industrial, civil, professional, or service domain.
It is fair to say that concerns over data security are proportional to the degree to which you and your data are mobile. Add to this the extra security and privacy controls necessary in the case of health information and you'd think that cloud-based, mobile data solutions are a hazard to healthcare. Indeed, the emphatic data security concerns specific to healthcare are reflected by the degree to which medical information technology and communications are regulated, surrounded by compliance codes and regulatory requirements.
With these concerns and these security protocol in mind, Claydata set about crafting an e-health solution - PuttyHealth - that would both preserve device mobility and data-structure flexibility and exceed standard security requirements. PuttyHealth conforms to interoperability standards such as HL7, and has a distinct edge over the domestic health IT industry.
With Claydata's software innovations and promises of the highest-level security-standard compliance comes the responsibility to ensure that security and privacy is maintained right down to the ground. For it is unavoidably the case that every cloud has, somewhere, a tangible, material source - by this we mean a host. So, when selecting a partner to host our and our cients' data we went to the best.
Knowing that we'd have to seek high to match not only our adroit software solution but our ambitions for an e-health solution unshackled from conventional data management paradigms, we sought and secured our cloud hosting services from one of the world's largest, oldest and most respected vendor of information technologies, Avnet. With Avnet on side, our clients can have the utmost confidence in their data integrity. Let's have a look at some stats.
As a company, Avnet boasts some impressive credentials. Here's a selection.
Financial clout and global reach aside, what exactly is it that Avnet offer Claydata, and thereby our clients, by way of information technology services and support? The specific operational group that provides hosting service to Claydata and Claydata clients is Avnet Services, a group with hundreds of clients and over 20 years experience in managed service provision, private cloud hosting and integration. First, some more stats and facts.
Practically speaking, this translates to three sets of service offerings.
These hosting services establish the tightest network schematic possible, a fully redundant network.
With such world-class systems in place to protect your data and ensure access to your data at all times, it is extremely unlikely that the network will experience any downtime. To back this up, Avnet offer a 99.999% network uptime guarantee. This equates to a guarantee against less than 26 seconds of downtime per month. In the event of hardware failure that circumvents redundancy, Avnet also offer a 4-hour maximum replacement window for dedicated servers. You're in the best hands the IT industry can offer.
There are, however, additional measures taken by Avnet to prevent crisis, and to provide support in times of crisis.
Ultimately, the benefits of a cloud-based solution far outweigh the problems one must expect from a traditional, on-premises IT solution.
What this means for our clients
How do I save?
Cloud computing = cost savings + efficiency + increased collaborative potential
