QTS Colocation Solutions Tailor-Made for the Healthcare Industry

As the Internet of Things looms ever larger, healthcare organizations are increasingly digitizing patient records and other healthcare-related data. In fact, according to research by the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, hospitals’ adoption of electronic health record systems skyrocketed by 27 percent from 2013 to 2014. As a result, the importance of data centers is greater than ever before, and it is crucial that those data centers be scalable, secure and compliant in order to meet the unique needs of healthcare organizations.

So which solution makes the most sense?

Building a data center comes at a high cost of both finances and resources, and security and compliance standards only add to the complexity of data storage and management. In fact, the International Data Corporation predicted that in 2016, one in three individuals would have their healthcare records compromised by cyber attacks.

Fortunately, QTS offers HIPAA-compliant mega data centers that allow you to quickly scale your data needs without compromising security. QTS’ healthcare colocation solutions can be configured to meet the specific needs of your healthcare organization without exposing you to the risks and challenges of buying, building and operating your own facility. Why use your capital and resources when you could leverage the efficiency of a data center provider, like QTS?

In addition to the capital and resource investments made in our infrastructure, QTS also focuses on the systems, people and processes necessary to deliver maximum up-time and reliability. We offer scalable, fully redundant facilities that grant healthcare organizations the flexibility they need to expand without ever relocating their infrastructure, and each facility has been designed and built to meet compliance and security requirements. Our certified Data Center Operations and support staff monitor your data center environment, address alerts and issues and provide you with the peace of mind you deserve, 24x7x365 – all at a lower cost than building your own facility would bring.
