Evolving Needs for On-Premises Servers in Healthcare

Healthcare organizations need infrastructure that can securely meet the performance requirements of electronic health record (EHR) system and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads, both now and into the future.

Healthcare organizations have unique infrastructure needs due to their diverse workloads and regulatory requirements. For example, organizations typically run database workloads to support electronic health records (EHRs). They also need to support hundreds or thousands of employees accessing confidential data from their PCs, and they face unique emerging artificial intelligence (AI) workloads that require specialized performance. Across all these scenarios, security is paramount for healthcare organizations trying to protect confidential medical and billing records in the face of constant and growing cyberattacks. With this research note, Prowess Consulting aims to help healthcare organizations plan for future hardware investments by making sure that the servers they consider can meet their security and AI-performance needs.
