April 13, 2016 – UK-based Arkivum has launched its white paper that tackles how the NHS, and Healthcare in general, can benefit from actively managing Big Data.
Specialist managed data storage services are positively disrupting how Big Data is being managed and secured. And they’re reducing costs, meeting NHS and healthcare compliance requirements, and delivering the long-term efficiency benefits that enable digital workflows to flourish.
A number of benefits
Today, in order to meet the demands for reduced costs and increased efficiency, many NHS organisations are implementing new digital strategies and, as a result, this is generating vast volumes of data. Big Data is therefore driving the need for new and innovative digital workflows, which is fostering new ways of working and transforming how patient care is delivered. As well as reduced costs, the value of actively managing Big Data in Healthcare also delivers a number of other benefits, including compliance with regulatory requirements, eliminating backup concerns as well as ensuring data is secure for the long term.
Even a modest digital pathology lab with one small slide scanner will generate over 15TB of data per year and storing, managing and securing this volume of data over decade-long timescales is a challenge that encompasses compliance, security, cost and data integrity requirements.
However, as the data generated by today’s pioneering work in the sector continues to grow, many healthcare organisations, including hospitals and research institutions, are finding that storing this vast amount of data in a way that fulfils a range of needs and requirements is much easier said than done.
