In the wake of the recent ransomware attacks on the healthcare industry, RamSoft’s prime focus at RSNA 2019 will be Patient Data Protection. In addition to their secure cloud-based imaging and workflow solutions, RamSoft will also highlight their HIPAA-compliant Patient Portal and Instant Messaging feature.
Toronto, ON – RamSoft — A recent report by security firm Emsisoft stated that at least 621 government entities, healthcare service providers and school districts, colleges and universities in the United States were affected by ransomware in the first nine months of 2019. Another IBM study reported that data breaches cost the healthcare sector $6.5 million on average. Despite these alarming numbers, many healthcare providers still choose to risk their patient data on-premise.
RamSoft has been a proponent of the cloud since over a decade; the reason – patient data protection. “We are a patient care company, not just a software company. Patient data protection is part of patient care.”, reiterates Vijay Ramanathan, CEO & Founder. With RamSoft’s solutions hosted on Microsoft’s Azure cloud, customers are guaranteed a secure data-centre, 24×7 server monitoring by Microsoft, 99.9% up-time. “Our solutions are designed in the best interest of patients and our customers. We’re happy that our customers appreciate the benefits of our cloud solutions.”– Al Kappel, Director of Global Sales. As of today, RamSoft has successfully migrated 39% customers to the cloud and witnessed a 45% increase in requests for their cloud solutions.
While the process of transitioning customers to the cloud is easy execution for RamSoft, the misconceptions about the cloud have been the biggest hurdle – ‘We’ll lose control of our data’, ‘Cloud is not affordable’, ‘Cloud will take away our jobs’ etc. RamSoft put these myths to rest in their recent webinar co-hosted with Microsoft by explaining the Security, Scalability and Cost-effectiveness of the cloud.
This year’s RSNA will be a great opportunity for attendees to see RamSoft’s solutions in action and understand how the cloud would benefit their practice. “Whether you are an imaging centre, teleradiology group or a hospital of any size, we have a solution that fits your needs and your budget.
