Global health risks and changing work styles have altered the healthcare technology landscape. Chronic staff shortages and limited clinical resources mean hospitals have to do more with less. And on the patient side, the demand for transparent, seamless digital-to-physical healthcare experiences is on the rise.
For hospitals and health providers, ongoing digital transformation has led to an unprecedented rise in security threats. Unprotected endpoints have created a growing attack surface both inside and outside the hospital. And healthcare providers are scrambling to keep new medical devices from being attacked.
To the Rescue: Connected Healthcare Solutions
The data coming from the healthcare industry outlines the expectations and the urgent need for smart solutions and medical device security:
- 84 percent of US physicians expect secure, streamlined data sharing to become standard in the next 5-10 years.
- 76 percent of clinicians believe telehealth will make up most of the patient care in the near future
- $3.58 million is the difference in the average cost of a data breach for organizations without security vs. organizations that have security solutions in place.
Take Control of End-to-End Data
To fully benefit from the opportunities in the healthcare industry, solution integrators need to know where to start with digital transformation.
Watch this short video to learn how Intel® and its ecosystem of partners can provide the right smart hospital approach. See how solution integrators can play a role in helping hospitals take control of end-to-end data in three key areas: data-driven telehealth, highly portable medical imaging, and end-to-end device security.
