Healthcare & Life Sciences

In the faster forward world, healthcare science industries operate differently. Companies collaborate globally on drug development, and physicians turn to portals and customers to their mobile devices for rich-media content on drugs, diagnostics, devices and more. Providers host health records online, and clinicians capture data through web-based applications available from contract research organizations. Employees collaborate with peers and partners in online workspaces.

Keep sites and application performance high and leverage the cloud

User expectations for website and mobile performance are exceedingly high. They want rich, dynamic content and online research spaces that are as fast and easy as consumer marketplaces. Applications, whether hosted internally or in the cloud, now need to be delivered globally and for any device type. Akamai optimizes web experiences and applications keeping them fast and reliable on any device, anywhere in the world.

Secure content and users and meet regulatory compliance

As medical applications and information move increasingly to the open, public Internet, security concerns grow. Organizations must protect their web-based applications to address regulatory compliance, safeguard private information, secure wireless medical device data and prevent system attacks.
