Atlas Cloud help to ensure the ultimate security for patient records and other practice data while providing remote access to workers no matter what their location.
The scalability and simple integration of our cloud solutions make them ideal for healthcare groups running multiple practices or looking to expand operations to new locations.
Since 2010, Atlas Cloud have been providing cloud-based technology solutions to customers in a wide range of industries including healthcare (covering care homes, medical centres and hospitals). From working with many healthcare organisations we have developed a great understanding of the areas which are important to them.
Due to the nature of the industry it means users handle a lot of highly sensitive patient information and it is vital that this data is protected at all times. A lot of people when they think of cloud technology they have doubts over the security of the solution, worrying that it’s somehow less secure than having the data on-site in a server they can see. In reality, cloud-based solutions actually provide you with better security for your confidential medial data. Data is stored off-site in secure data centres which remove any environmental risks to your data (fire and flood) and the level of encryption offered from cloud technology goes beyond traditional setups.
At Atlas Cloud our UK based data centres are ISO 27001 certified and we also hold accreditations for BS10012 (which shows that we operate within the GDPR regulations), Cyber Essentials and we are G-Cloud approved. These certifications show our dedication to your security and by joining us your organisation will immediately benefit from enhanced security.
Cloud-technology also brings with it an extra level of device security as no data is stored on the actual device, instead it is just accessed via the cloud. This means, should you lose or have a device stolen you’ll lose no patient data (as your session will simply be remotely locked). Additionally, whenever new security patches are released we will apply them to all users immediately so no one has any outdated operating systems.
Like any organisation, healthcare workers will rely heavily on email and will be using it to pass on information about patients. Due to this, it’s vital that your emails aren’t intercepted or compromised by viruses. We partner with Mimecast to bring our customers industry leading email security, which protects against spam, viruses, impersonation attacks as well as malicious URLs and attachments.
Being offline can have catastrophic results on medical centres and care facilities, as you need to be able to access patient information at all times. In 2017 the NHS was a victim of a high profile cyber-attack when ransomware locked access to records. To keep your organisation safe, we offer disaster recovery solutions which protect you against this and will have you up and running in under 15 minutes in the event of an outage.
Many healthcare staff are required to work on-the-go visiting the homes of those requiring care or moving between various medical centres as needed. Due to this way of working, we’re able to bring you solutions which enhance users remote and flexible working. Our Hosted Desktop service allows your staff to effectively take their office with them, giving them access via a familiar Windows environment to all their email, files and applications. They can access their Hosted Desktop via any device and they work great even on 3G or 4G making them ideal for traveling work. What’s more, whenever you connect to your desktop, it picks up exactly where you left off. So now, if you’ve got a spare 15 minutes you’ll be able to jump straight back into that email or report you were writing and put those spare minutes to productive use.
Budgets in the healthcare industry are always tight, with IT departments unable to spend what they’d ideally like to on hardware, applications and security.
To help out, our pricing model offers clear, transparent and predictable pricing which gives you greater control over what you spend. If you need to scale up or down, you can do so on a month-to-month basis only paying for what you use.
Switching to Hosted Desktops or Hosted Applications allows your IT budget to go further. With the processing power needed to run your desktop or application comes from our data centre and not the device it means you can switch to low cost thin client devices instead. These also use a lot less electricity which brings savings for you on utility bills. Additionally, by moving to the cloud it allows you to decommission any old on-site servers which can be expensive to maintain (you’ll also potentially save on cooling costs needed for server rooms).
