Perficient Leverages Cloud Expertise to Help Healthcare Clients Increase Clinical Efficiencies and Improve Quality of Care
ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Perficient, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced the results of a survey conducted by HIMSS Media, a HIMSS Innovation Company, in collaboration with Perficient and Red Hat. The survey explored cloud trends in the healthcare industry and identified common issues organizations face prior to implementing cloud technologies.
The blinded HIMSS Technology Outlook Survey: The Outlook for Cloud finds healthcare organizations are already deploying or planning to deploy a significant share of their healthcare information technology (HIT) workload to cloud. Specifically, the study finds that:
– An estimated 39 percent of HIT workloads are currently deployed in the cloud today;
– An estimated 50 percent of HIT workloads are expected to be deployed in the cloud 12 months from now; and
– An estimated 79 percent are making cloud a strategic priority in the coming year.
Despite this accelerated adoption rate, the study finds that only 58 percent of stakeholders are confident they are aligning their spending priorities and technology roadmap to adequately meet their cloud needs.
“There remains some confusion on how to best apply cloud technologies,” said Joel Thimsen, principal of cloud consulting, Perficient. “Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategies, vendor variation, and different strategies for implementation and preparation contribute to the complexity of adopting cloud platforms. Considering this, it can be hard for organizations to understand where to start to gain true transformative change for digital health and data analytics initiatives.”
Even as confusion exists on how to implement cloud technologies, the research finds that stakeholders view the cloud as a key component to accomplishing strategic initiatives that enable business transformation. As a trusted partner that understands the potential of cloud capabilities within the healthcare industry, Perficient helps organizations match specific cloud offerings with their own business and clinical needs. The company maintains a formal cloud migration and DevOps methodology based on the successful delivery of multiple large-scale cloud applications.
A large healthcare payer facing changes in healthcare reform and shifting customer expectations partnered with Perficient to develop a modern application development platform. Perficient, a Red Hat Premier Partner, used Red Hat OpenShift to deploy an end-to-end continuous delivery pipeline and a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution that improved the velocity of application delivery. The solution decreased developer onboarding time, increased the speed-to-market of application development, and reshaped the organization’s outlook on how to leverage cloud technology for future growth.
Perficient has also worked with healthcare providers to create a holistic view of patient and member information using cloud technologies. The flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of the cloud provide the infrastructure to consolidate volumes of patient data found across disparate clinical repositories. With unified cloud-based platforms housing their data, hospitals and academic medical centers drive efficiency in their research and clinical initiatives while improving the ability to monitor the quality of care they provide.
“As disruption accelerates in healthcare, speed to market is the key for meeting market demands, and we believe cloud solutions play a crucial role in that journey for healthcare organizations,” said Prem Somasundaram, general manager of healthcare operations, Perficient.
“Cloud adoption remains a strategic priority for healthcare organizations who are using, or plan to use, real-time data exchange to drive initiatives such as clinical decisioning in the move towards value transformation,” said Atif Chaughtai, director, Solution Architecture for Healthcare, Red Hat. “Through our collaboration with Perficient, we are helping these organizations achieve greater speed, scale and flexibility for these initiatives with open hybrid cloud solutions.”
