Why is healthcare moving interoperability infrastructure to the cloud?

Healthcare delivery organizations want to integrate data across many technology platforms, including on-premises and newer, cloud-based applications. Moving healthcare infrastructure to the cloud simplifies maintenance and security, while positioning organizations for a technology future that’s cloud-based. Cloud-based applications are subscription-based and convenient for healthcare organizations, with faster installations and smoother upgrades.

Larger trends in healthcare, technology, and consumer behavior are leading healthcare organizations to move to cloud-based data integration.

Fast technology adoption

Healthcare organizations continue to expand beyond traditional care delivery systems, investing in new cloud-based applications to support telehealth, patient engagement platforms, and remote patient monitoring.  

Digital consumers

Consumers expect to interact digitally with their healthcare providers, with their information staying consistent across the healthcare organization. The result? More data to integrate across a healthcare organization’s many IT systems, including connecting new apps and wearables. 

Competitive edge

A technology labor shortage means that healthcare providers and tech companies must compete and innovate with smaller teams. Efficient, cloud-based technology relieves pressure on IT teams.

Options for cloud-based deployment

Once healthcare integrations have been migrated to the cloud, they require maintenance and management. New integrations may need to be built. Rhapsody health solutions customers choose how much integration management they prefer to shoulder, and the deployment option that best fits their business goals, staffing, and budget.

Customer-proven results

Ensuring customers are successful is our highest priority.

“We wanted a cloud-based option and a fully managed service — a partner who knew health integration, so our engineers could focus on one pipe and one protocol to get data to the integration engine, and then trust that service to securely share the data downstream with our clients.”

“I don’t want to say it was easy, because migrating 200 interfaces is never easy. But we were able to bring them seamlessly into Rhapsody as a Service, and we were off and running.”

Darren Powell

AVP of Applications, UofL Health

“The fact that I don’t have to spend thought cycles on the areas that Rhapsody manages is a huge benefit. I can shift my team from figuring out integrations to getting new contracts established with partners, vendors, and customers. Having Rhapsody has definitely been a huge boost for us.”
