1 EMC HYBRID CLOUD SOLUTION FOR HEALTHCARE Next-Generation Health IT at the Point-of-Care ESSENTIALS Delivering ITaaS via a trusted, well-run EMC Hybrid Cloud drives business alignment, efficiency, and end-user satisfaction: Respond to business and clinical requirements immediately: Offer infrastructure/application d li in hours rather than months. Clearly show IT value: increase visibility into true costs of IT services while charging business units only for what they use. Put applications in the right cloud: Applications have varying SLA and PHI security requirements EMC Hybrid Cloud ensures application workloads can be placed in the right cloud, with the right cost, security, reliability, and performance. Make your resources elastic: Users and admins alike can add or reduce storage, t resources, security and data protection on the fly without manual intervention. Support today s and tomorrow s apps: By connecting Private Cloud resources with Public Cloud resources through the EMC Hybrid Cloud, IT can manage both traditional and next-gen apps together in a way that is consistent and seamless. CHALLENGES From EMR Meaningful Use and Affordable Care mandates, ICD-10, mergers and acquisitions, population health management, to patient-centered medical homes, healthcare providers are under increased financial and performance pressures. As these organizations transition from a fee-for-service to a pay-for-performance model based on episodes of care, they also face the challenges of enhanced HITECH and HIPAA requirements to keep patient information private and secure, continuously available, and protected. To improve care coordination and outcomes across inpatient acute care and extended sites of care, providers are investing in next-generation Health IT foundations to facilitate secure, integrated, real-time data at the point-of-care. These IT capabilities need to deliver higher agility and drive business revenue. And they must do this while maximizing operational efficiency, lowering costs, and managing growth requirements resulting from cloud, mobile, social, Big Data and analytics. While many healthcare organizations are embracing virtualization, converged infrastructure, and cloud services, they often feel confronted by a binary choice: either the speed and agility of public cloud services or the control and security of private cloud infrastructure. The EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution for Healthcare enables organizations to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively build a trusted hybrid cloud that embodies the best of both worlds. FOUNDATION FOR COORDINATED CARE Healthcare providers are adopting cloud solutions as a strategy to lower IT costs with a greater shift toward OPEX versus CAPEX, speed of deployment, and to supplement internal staff and expertise with off-premise resources. A hybrid cloud incorporates both public clouds for access to a wide array of applications and services such as and backup-as-a-service and private clouds for reliable performance and security for critical clinical applications including the EMR and PACS. In other words, a hybrid cloud foundation can help your healthcare organization deliver the right data to the right caregiver at the right time. Cloud computing is the key to running IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS), giving IT leaders the flexibility and speed they need to effectively manage expenses, enhance service delivery, and increase revenue while meeting the evolving expectations of mobile caregivers and patients. EMC Hybrid Cloud provides IT leaders with choice without sacrificing control over IT services including 100% automated provisioning, scale up/ down elasticity, and simplified operations - both on-premise and off premise. Running ITaaS drives business alignment, efficiency, and end-user satisfaction. SOLUTION OVERVIEW
2 And, the solution provides the financial transparency and control to clearly understand how each application workload and service is consuming resources. Delivering ITaaS via a Well-Run Hybrid Cloud involves transformation across the healthcare system and continuum of care. The EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution for Healthcare enables a well-run hybrid cloud by bringing new functionality to not only IT, but also to developers, end-users, and lineof-business and clinical owners. Beyond delivering baseline Infrastructure-as-aService (IaaS), built on the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture, like EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage, the solution also delivers feature-rich capabilities to expand from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), to business-enabling IT-as-aService. Backup-as-a-Service and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service are now just a policy that can be enabled with a few clicks. Healthcare providers can also leverage a Software-Defined Data Center architecture comprising technologies from across the EMC federation of companies including EMC storage and data protection, RSA security, Pivotal CF Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and the Pivotal Big Data Suite, VMware cloud management and virtualization solutions, and VMware vcloud Hybrid Service. Figure 1: EMC Hybrid Cloud Solution for Healthcare EMC can also help your organization deploy automation and orchestration capabilities which are critical enablers of software-defined datacenters and cloud computing. The SDDC also helps to drive down the cost of deploying and managing traditional applications, while enabling a new breed of applications. The SDDC is fully automated, leveraging application policies and integration across compute, storage and network. EMC and VMware deliver the software-defined data center with its integration of the VMware vsphere Suite, EMC ViPR Software-defined storage, and EMC market-leading storage platforms and backup.
