Red Hat's intelligent Data-as-a-Service solution for healthcare

Letzte Aktualisierung:

Industry overview 

For healthcare organizations (HCOs), regulatory programs, such as value-based payment models, population health programs, and precision medicine, add a new level of complexity. These initiatives require effective communication and data access from multiple sources, including smart devices and electronic health record systems. Seamlessly storing, integrating, and managing healthcare data is another challenge. Red Hat’s enterprise open source solutions for healthcare support these complex challenges and transformational initiatives.

Modern data management

To address these data management requirements, HCOs need an architecture that can process data from various sources and route information to a wide variety of new destinations. This modern architecture must also reconcile disparate operational data across the enterprise into a new, agile information resource. Data-as-a-Service can help.

Data-as-a-Service treats data as a product with its own life cycle. It provides data on demand to the user, regardless of geographic or organizational separation from the provider.  Access to the data is controlled and improved through data services, which requires a single point for updates. This approach helps organizations move quickly since extensive knowledge of the underlying data is not required. Data providers can then build the base with data experts and outsource the presentation layer for cost efficiency.
