To the non-technical eye, “the cloud” might seem like an open bank vault inviting itself to be robbed. After all, it’s basically a massive database of sensitive information, and in the digital age, information is worth its virtual weight in gold. As such, it seems obvious that if you want to keep your data safe, you must keep it where you can protect it — that means on-site and away from the cloud.
But is there any truth to this assumption?
Not much, really.
Yes, it’s theoretically possible to hack into the cloud, but that same risk exists for every database. The truth is that the cloud has proven itself to be a reliable and secure choice for some of the largest businesses today. 64% of enterprise companies note that cloud infrastructure is a more secure data solution than legacy systems. And security is a major concern for hospitals considering adopting a cloud solution.
And while the cloud is quickly becoming the most trusted data solution for hospitals of all sizes, the leader in Healthcare cloud technologies — ezDI — is proving itself by taking data security a step further. Unlike other vendors we are not rushing in to move our infrastructure on cloud, in fact from the inception of our company all ezDI software’s were created on cloud by making security our number one priority.
ezDI uses a variety of methods to ensure that our customer’s data stays safe, secure, and available only to registered users in their organization. We also make sure that our customer’s data will be completely inaccessible to any unregistered users through our ezDI platform.
In addition, ezDI’s applications are hosted in a secure AWS environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. All customer data up to the last committed transaction is backed up everyday. ezDI further enhances its reliability measures by storing all customer data on mirrored disks that are mirrored across different storage cabinets and controllers. We take extreme measures to ensure our customer’s data is not lost or tampered with.
Some people are hesitant to use the cloud because they’re worried about security. Let’s face it, any time you use a computer, you are vulnerable to threats. The chances of security breach are actually greater with on-premise data storage.
ezDI takes the safety of its clients’ data very seriously. At ezDI, customer centricity is our #1 value and we are committed to running the most secure, trusted, reliable and available Computer-Assisted Coding, Computer-Assisted Clinical Documentation Improvement, and Compliance SaaS (software as a service).
Every company has different wants and needs, and hospitals are no different. Clinical workflow set-up is one of the most critical workflows in the healthcare industry. Most legacy software vendors are unable to customize their software according to their customers need.
But, since ezDI is completely cloud based, we can adopt the changes required based on the hospital’s needs and configure with nearly ZERO-DOWNTIME, NO EXTRA COST for UPGRADES and that is with SCALABILITY.
If you still feel that software products based on cloud computing are not safe, you need to reconsider. One of the biggest civilian foreign intelligence service of the United States federal government – Central Intelligence Agency (CIA ) and the social media platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn are all cloud-based operations.
