Improve Patient Experiences for Digital Healthcare

Digital healthcare businesses operate in different ways, but share a consistent focus on maximizing patient care. Doing that requires establishing and maintaining customer trust by improving availability, ensuring consistent and timely delivery of experiences and data, and augmenting security for PHI and other medical information. Increasingly, digital healthcare providers host health records online, clinicians capture data through web-based applications from research organizations, and ambulatory and hospital services rely on digital applications to maximize patient care. In all cases, maintaining availability, performance, and security are of paramount importance.

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 public Internet, security concerns grow. To establish patient trust, as well as to attain ISO and SOC certifications and maintain HIPAA compliance, applications that manage PHI must be secured, and critical infrastructure must be protected from the impact of DDoS attacks. The Akamai Intelligent Platform™ protects healthcare and life science companies with "always on" protection delivered at the edge of the Internet to keep data safe, user engagement consistent, and performance high.

"The level of performance and scalability that Akamai provides helps us retain our competitive edge." — John Hluboky, SVP of Technical Operations, Practice Fusion
