Cloud in Health

Health organizations can benefit from Microsoft’s industry-leading approach to security, privacy, and compliance while minimizing cost and complexity.

    McKesson offers healthcare analytics on the Microsoft Cloud Platform.

    Compliance with world class industry standards verified by third parties

    Health Organizations around the world have entrusted Microsoft to help protect their data. Microsoft values this trust, and the privacy and security of your data is one of our top concerns. Microsoft strives to take a leadership role when it comes to security, privacy, and compliance practices in the cloud. Microsoft partners with customers to help them address a wide range of international, country, and industry-specific regulatory requirements including HIPAA, ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Audit and Certification, FISMA, and the United Kingdom G-Cloud OFFICIAL Accreditation. By providing customers with compliant, independently verified cloud services, Microsoft makes it easier for customers to achieve compliance for the infrastructure and applications they run in Azure.

    Easily access cloud resources on demand
    Health organizations retain control of their sensitive data at all times and for applications that require geographic scale in a snap, infrastructure that needs to scale at a moment’s notice, or massive storage at a reduced cost, the Microsoft cloud platform lets you move datacenter resources easily to accommodate spikes in IT usage.
    Help reduce medical-image storage costs

    Reduce storage costs by 60% to 80%, versus traditional storage methods using StorSimple, an on-premises tiered storage appliance that delivers high-performance storage, live archiving, and cloud data protection.

    Manage corporate identities in a more transparent way

    Identities are independent of whether your medical applications are running on a local server or in the public cloud.

    Make it easier for IT to deliver valuable services to your health professionals

    By pooling resources in the datacenter, and then extending into the cloud, you get a flexible and resilient platform to support virtually any workload.

    Help improve IT efficiency

    Use a single management infrastructure with robust security capabilities for all your health professionals’ devices, including desktop PCs, Windows tablets, Windows Phone, Android smartphones, iPads, and iPhones.

    With a consistent deployment experience on-premises or in a public cloud, you can take advantage of a hybrid cloud model while leveraging existing IT skills.

    Reduce the risk of losing data in case of a disaster
    There is no longer the need to setup your own fully-duplicated disaster recovery site. Healthcare customers are increasingly relying on Microsoft Azure as a safe place to store virtual machines, applications and data.
