All PowerHealth Solutions products are also available as a hosted service, where we host the software and data on our servers. Users access the application from their hospital location.
This is very convenient as it:
Reduces the cost of ownership
Removes need for inhouse IT support
Allows finance experts to concentrate on the business issues
Provides full data privacy and security — eg SSL VPN connection.
We tailor our hosting options to suit individual organizations, based on factors such as:
Funding requirements — eg state or federal funding
Taxation constraints — based on your local taxation laws
Commitment period — 12 months to 5 years
Data isolation — with dedicated servers or shared servers.
System administration — setup and maintenance of the servers, performing regular backups, applying operating system updates, installing and configuring new hardware/software, tuning system performance.
Security — securing the host server and all its data from unauthorised access, maintaining a firewall as protection against external hacking, monitoring and identifying security breaches using audit trails, applying anti-virus software to thwart and eliminate computer viruses.
Network administration — maintaining the monitoring the active network gear (switches, routers, firewalls), network address assignment, assigning routing protocols and routing configurations, configuring authenticiation and authorization, maintaining network drivers and gateways, etc.
Troubleshooting — tracking down and resolving operating system and network problems.
We wanted to concentrate on our clinical costing and let PowerHealth Solutions handle the computer hardware and system administration issues. It is a win-win situation.
