As changes sweep through the healthcare industry to reduce costs and improve clinical outcomes, healthcare organizations are turning to electronic health records (EHRs) to streamline and manage patient and other medical data. With the proliferation of EHR and other health IT systems, organizations must digitize and store increasing volumes of sensitive data. This presents two key challenges: providing the performance and availability needed for processing vast amounts of data, and protecting confidential health information to meet the requirements of regulations such as the U.S. Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act).

Global Net Access Health (GNAX Health) cloud solutions for healthcare organizations use Intel® Xeon® processors equipped with hardware-enabled security features such as Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI)1 to provide high availability and protection of sensitive data while preserving the server performance that users expect.

Data Proliferation: The New Health IT Challenge
Many EHR systems now include medical images, further increasing the volume of data that is processed and stored as the industry adopts higher image resolution, 3-D imaging, and video. Data retention requirements of HIPAA2 and other regulations contribute to the proliferation of medical data—and the complexity of managing the health information life cycle causes some organizations to retain this information in perpetuity.
