Healthcare organizations are shifting towards a data-driven mindset. Marketing departments must base their programs on data-driven insights and patients should be informed to update their data. The healthcare industry must be able to quickly access the relevant information to make strategic decision. It is crucial to have a robust and secure healthcare data room.
A health data warehouse (HDR) is a centralized repository that consolidates healthcare organizational data from various systems and processes it for analysis and reporting. It also provides a common data model, standardizes org-wide use of health data and enhances operational efficiency. A healthcare DWH is typically made up of an area of staging and a data storage layer, and an analytics and BI tool.
The healthcare industry is heavily regulated, and compliance is key. A security breach or failure could be devastating for healthcare organisations. Therefore, they must design their HDR structures that are based on the needs of their specific business applications as well as their developed Recovery Time Objectives and Recover Point Objectives. This includes implementing multi-tiered redundant and geographically isolated systems which can ensure high availability and data security in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.
Life science and healthcare organizations rely on virtual data rooms to manage sensitive, proprietary information that may be shared with partners or clients. Virtual data rooms facilitate collaboration and speed up M&A activities, clinical trials as well as intellectual property licensing and biotech licensing. To protect confidential health information it is vital to choose a HIPAA-compliant and 21 CFR Part 11 validated VDR service.
