Hitachi Data Systems Corporation (HDS) — an IT services provider — is now offering a medical content management blueprint for Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model (EMRAM) to healthcare providers in Asia Pacific to help them optimise their IT investments.
Healthcare providers today are rapidly adopting electronic medical records (EMR) applications to enhance care quality and efficiency. However, it can be a daunting task to identify the appropriate solutions to store and manage medical content when they adopt EMR. The Healthcare Information ad Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in Asia Pacific thus devised an eight-stage EMRAM to help healthcare providers understand their EMR needs.
To further help healthcare providers in Asia Pacific to fully adopt EMR, HDS has created medical content management solutions that match HIMSS' EMRAM. The solutions revolve around business continuity, file and content, unified storage, storage economics, cloud enablement, virtualisation, and enterprise-class storage platforms. Healthcare providers can implement each element separately according to the stage they are in (based on EMRAM) or deploy an integrated infrastructure with multiple solutions to support their specific environment and growth plan.
"As patient data continues to grow, health organisations need highly scalable, available IT infrastructures to support patient care as well as lower the total cost of ownership," said Johnny Ma, general manager, APAC Industry Solutions, Hitachi Data Systems. In line with this, the solutions provided by HDS are fully compatible and scalable for interoperation, claimed HDS in a press statement.
