Cloud #HealthcareIT Challenges: Outsourced Storage and Content Management Technology

Cloud Challenges: Outsourced Storage and Content Management Technology

  • Image Accessibility Latency of Telecommunications
    • If an outsourced archive is the primary archive, retrieval time must meet user expectations
    • The number of users and volume may impact communications latency if piggybacked on hospital’s communications infrastructure – may require dedicated communications line
    • Balance between on-demand requests and those that can be managed by pre-fetch
  • Telecommunications Cost
    • Responsibility?  Facility or part of Out-source agreement?
    • Understand access requirements before considering communications options
  • Storage and Telecommunications “Ownership”
    • Out-sourcing Agreement should be clear on who owns support for storage and communications infrastructure
    • Agreement should also be clear on who owns data (Facility)!
