With the growing demand for quality of life, physical and mental health as well as drastic consumer behavior shift towards online consumption, online healthcare scenarios such as remote medical consultations, online medication prescriptions and online healthcare management are becoming more popular. The entire healthcare ecosystem has also been brought into the new normal of digitization, leading to higher requirements for corporate digital capabilities.
The healthcare industry covers a number of human health-related product and service arenas including medical supplies, healthcare products, nutritious food, medical devices, healthcare equipment, leisure and fitness, health management and health consulting, and more. Due to its wide coverage, the digitization capabilities of each enterprise may vary. The data connectivity, security and compliance are closely related to the digital infrastructure capabilities of each enterprise.
Intelligent network infrastructure. With the continuous innovation and development in the healthcare industry and the exponential growth of online use cases, many enterprises have grown and expanded their business rapidly. Some of their rapid growth is gained across multiple domains, in new business or new services while others have experienced a surge in the number of users. At the same time, the big data generated has been more complex and diverse than ever before. In the aspect of data collection and applications, enterprises need to intelligently analyze the massive and diverse data to create new business value for implementing their sales strategies and business decisions quickly. To achieve effective data analysis and insights, unified management and real-time cross-regional interconnection, enterprises should be more agile and flexible. They are required to have a cloud infrastructure with rapid deployment and flexibility capabilities for cross-regional, cross-platform connection and business development support. Stable, secure and flexible network connections facilitate uninterrupted transmissions of data even in the event of network congestion, which is the key to quality enterprise services.
Healthcare information security. Individual user health information usually covers the entire lifecycle of an individual including privacy-related sensitive information such as personal information, medical records, health information and clinical information as well as other aspects such as medical services, disease prevention and control, medical insurance fee control and health management. The healthcare big data generated from each individual’s health information is a strategic resource for enterprises and industry players. How to fully extract and effectively use this hidden value in the big data is a major concern of every enterprise. Prior to using the data, enterprises especially in the healthcare industry have to put data security as their first priority. This can help protect against significant loss or damage to their business or reputation even in the event of data breaches.
