As mentioned above – the economic benefits can be huge, and it is mainly caused by Cloud flexibility and amount of additional microservices available. What does it mean in practice? You pay for the usage, on demand, and you can scale the resources.
In addition, Cloud solutions lower the cost of staff resources, therefore there is no need anymore for additional healthcare providers who have IT skills, especially within SaaS solutions, in which huge responsibility is on the Cloud provider’s side. The flexibility lays also in real-time, remote access to applications and data which can be also of a huge help in medical training.
Cloud solutions are a core component in scaling medical education, enabling course directors to share the same curriculum with all of their students and take advantage of standardized international courses. Proficiency-based performance assessments are also tracked using VirtaMed simulators, giving course directors a real-time quantitative view of their students’ progress via the cloud. Using machine learning algorithms, this data can be analyzed to optimize learning pathways for individual students. There is a need to have equipment up and running in high-pressure hospital environments. With cloud technology, suppliers such a VirtaMed can remotely monitor their systems and take measures to ensure uptime, maintain equipment reliability and deploy updates in a more agile way. – underlines Benjamin Grauer, Product Owner at VirtaMed, Cybercom’s partner.
