The ability to collect and share clinical data in real-time and with common meaning is crucial to high-quality, sustainable healthcare. While interoperability through a regional or national Health Information Exchange can reduce costs, minimise readmissions and avoid medication errors, a lack of information poses a significant risk to patient safety and makes high-quality, coordinated care challenging to achieve. In the UK, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) are evolving into Integrated Care Records, which then come together to form a Local Health Care Record or LHCR. An LHCR is made up of five or six Integrated Care Systems sharing patient data, to create a regional health information exchange. With much work taking place to facilitate patient information sharing, what can be done at an individual NHS Trust Level?
Evergreen Storage enables storage that is deployed once and non-disruptively upgraded, as needed, for a decade or more, without the need to re-buy a TB or controllers you already own. Forget downtime, performance impact, or data migrations: We’ve engineered compatibility for future technologies directly into the product itself.
Pure as-a-Service is a platform for transforming an enterprise storage environment into a highly efficient storage utility. The industry’s first on-premises storage-as-a-service (STaaS) offering from a major vendor, Pure as-a-Service leverages the industry-leading, field-proven, FlashArrayTM and FlashBladeTM infrastructure to achieve success with peta-scale organizations and a 100% retention rate.
Digital transformation is one of the most popular business trends. Research shows that two-thirds of Global 2000 companies will, by the end of 2017 have placed digital transformation at the core of their corporate strategies.
The world has been thrust into a new way of working, both in our personal lives and within the business world. As a human race we look to ways in which we can adapt when facing new, challenging and confusing times, and naturally in today’s age we turn to technology. Everyone has been affected by what has happened and it’s clear that during this time we have had to rely heavily on technology – more specifically Artificial Intelligence.
Dizzying as these tech shifts might feel at the moment, they are opening our eyes to AI’s potential and promise for the ever-evolving healthcare sector. Innovating at rapid speed and scale, AI capabilities are already bringing dramatic changes to the way we ‘do healthcare’ - not least when it comes to the advancement of care diagnostics. Using a patient-centred, AI-powered chatbot illustrates these opportunities up-close. When deciding next steps in care, patients often find themselves making important decisions on their own amidst difficult and confusing access points.
With the increased demand on radiology departments to produce scans for Covid disease management compounding an already global shortage of radiographers and radiologists, Machine Learning and AI are increasingly playing a pivotal role in automatic Image Recognition and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).
Fast, optimised, and intelligent data storage and management systems are required to support picture archiving and enhanced disease detection and monitoring.
This guide and product showcase is intended to help those whose work involves supporting the administration of PACS and VNA Systems.
Automation is currently the top priority trend for IT & Business Leaders in the enterprise. At the same time, multiple perspectives on Enterprise Automation have emerged recently—including Hyper Automation, Integrated Automation and Digital Process Automation. In this article, we touch on the aspects of embracing automation as an organizational-level change with an approach to adopt ‘automation@scale’ based on principles of enterprise architecture & business transformation.
What is enterprise automation and what to automate?
How impactful are these automations on your business?
How to embrace the change
When a ransomware attack disables a hospital’s electronic health record (EHR) solution, the disruption can be widespread. EHR downtime caused by ransomware attacks hinders clinical decisions, creates the potential for medical errors, and could even be a contributing cause to a patient death.
Ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations encrypt not only EHR production databases, but also the backups that you use to recover from attacks. As the sophistication of these attacks increase, healthcare organizations need to address ransomware mitigation and recovery with a modern cyber protection strategy.
This expert guide shows you how you can improve your cyber protection with a five-step framework.
Learn how to reduce your vulnerability to attacks
Ensure that your data isn't an attractive option for attackers
Get set up for rapid recovery
To ensure IT operational efficiency across its fast-paced environment, Medway NHS Foundation Trust introduced baramundi Deploy to schedule device reboots at pre-agreed downtimes. This was especially the case of critical departments such as the accidents/emergency and intensive care units. Used in parallel with baramundi Automate – both of which are standard tools included in the baramundi Management Suite solution – the process of supplying endpoints with software, crucial security updates and patches has become automated, freeing up IT resources that could be used for proactive and preventative maintenance.

Staying one step ahead with baramundi Patch Management
University clinics necessarily have large workforces and correspondingly high demands for user support. First and second-level support, which includes a central hotline, is staffed by only twelve full-time staff and is responsible for supporting 7,000 end devices and 5,500 employees. Without the baramundi Management Suite, UKM IT would need at least twice as many full-time support employees.
Spectacular cyber-attacks in which thousands of data records are stolen or destroyed are making headlines, again and again. Those attacks are by no means the result of a stroke of genius from highly talented hackers. In fact, they are increasingly brought about by criminals who have managed to get through without expensive equipment and professional programming knowledge.

From Vulnerability Management to Endpoint Security
Organisations working in healthcare, life sciences, and nonprofits are doing incredibly important work with limited resources to focus on digital transformation, despite the critical updates that are needed.
We have developed a hybrid approach to automation to address this challenge. The Hybrid Method follows two guiding principles:
Implementing robust solutions that are, as a result, easy and low cost for organisations to maintain.
Realising process efficiency rapidly by reducing project overheads and time-to-value.
