Virtustream Healthcare Cloud

Built for Healthcare. Designed for Transformation.

Improve patient care with new digital services while modernizing infrastructure, reducing costs, and delivering the highest standards of availability, security, and compliance.

A healthcare cloud

Now, you can modernize your health IT environments in a HIPAA/HITECH-compliant cloud purpose-built for mission-critical enterprise applications. Virtustream Healthcare Cloud includes true consumption-based pricing and the flexibility to scale up and scale down as requirements change. With Virtustream Healthcare Cloud, healthcare providers can improve quality of care by expanding EHR usage and launching new patient engagement systems and precision health platforms—all with cloud-based architectures that maintain the security of protected health information (PHI) and reduce operational cost.

Mission Critical Care

Virtustream Healthcare Cloud is purpose-built from the ground up to support mission-critical healthcare applications with infrastructure availability SLAs up to 99.999%, which is less than 6 minutes of unplanned downtime a year. Virtustream Healthcare Cloud also offers business continuity with the option to add disaster recovery as needed. Virtustream also provides optional 24x7, comprehensive managed services so that providers can offload the time-consuming tasks of managing day-to-day IT operations, and focus on innovations to improve patient care.

Performance Assurance

Virtustream Healthcare Cloud doesn’t just enable mission-critical enterprise applications—it enables them to perform more efficiently than ever before. We ensure that your critical business systems aren't just available, but performing at mission-required speeds.

Virtustream Healthcare Cloud can be deployed off-premises or integrated with on-premises solutions for hybrid deployments. In all cases, customers get the efficiency, flexibility, and performance of Virtustream’s enterprise-class cloud service. The service also leverages our patented MicroVM cloud resource allocation and management technology, which allows fine-grained measurement of compute, memory, network, and storage consumption. This means you only pay for the resources you use, reducing inefficiencies and creating significant cost savings while eliminating the cost of virtualized overhead from unused or underutilized virtual machines.

Virtustream EHR Service

Virtustream offers a choose-your-own menu of managed services that can provide healthcare organizations what they need to transform their IT landscape and improve patients’ experiences while reducing costs. At the most basic, Virtustream provides managed services for the underlying Virtustream Hybrid Cloud, including management of all infrastructure. Customers also have the option of having Virtustream manage the computing platform that serves their Citrix XenDesktop or VMware Horizon View for their published applications. Lastly, customers can choose Virtustream Healthcare Cloud plus the Virtustream EHR Service, which includes managed services for the Virtustream Healthcare Cloud, the desktop application delivery, and the customer’s EHR system database.

End-to-end security and compliance

Only the highest security standards are acceptable for healthcare application delivery and data management. Above and beyond the obvious concerns for their patients’ privacy, healthcare organizations need to know that their applications and data are extremely secure. Patient records contain protected health information (PHI) that must be secured. That’s why Virtustream security protocols, compliance frameworks, and certifications include

  • Defense in-depth security: Role-based access control, multi-factor authentication, encryption of data at rest, in motion, and in use, vulnerability scanning and risk protection, log management, and a full suite of managed security services.
  • Industry compliances: Enables compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), as well as similar frameworks for specific countries or regions.

Transform with enterprise-class Virtustream Healthcare Cloud

Virtustream provides the speed for deployment, scalability, and economics that helps healthcare organizations transform their IT environments and embrace the digital age.
