End-to-end cloud solutions provider Chamco Digital is set to move into the American healthcare technology industry by making Epic—an electronic health record system widely used by hospitals to manage processes and workflows centred on patient care—available on Azure cloud solution across the country.
Umar Ali, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Co-founder of Chamco Digital, announced that a new group of cloud-savvy technical staff would be assembled to guide Chamco Digital in its expansion into healthcare services. The company’s new group of technical and management staff comprises of Azure Solutions Architects, Epic and Azure sales and marketing professionals, and billing experts.
Right Move at the Right Time
The CFO of Chamco Digital expressed his support for Chamco Digital’s new push into the healthcare sector, noting that this was the “right move at the right time.”
“We’ve been helping companies in many industries migrate to the cloud and realize the immense benefits of this technology. Now, we’re turning our attention to the healthcare industry to help them smoothly and safely transition to the innovative Epic on Azure platform.”
This move is not Chamco Digital’s first venture into the healthcare sector. For instance, Chamco Digital had previously developed a telemedicine application, StableDoc, which allows people from around the world to meet with doctors in real-time.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many companies’ digital transformation and ways of working, corporations’ adoption of cloud computing has been on an upwards trend. Ali affirmed his faith in Epic on Azure, noting that it would likely be the cloud provider many hospitals and medical service providers would choose, as based on the software’s documented reliability and success in the healthcare industry, and the cloud platform’s unmatched successes.
However, when moving Epic Systems’ healthcare software service onto the cloud, companies need to ensure that they can make the transition efficiently, without wasting cloud spend. Notably, inefficiencies may arise when companies set up and overprovision infrastructure which winds up being underutilised.
According to Ali, Chamco Digital was indeed aware of its customers’ need to manage inefficiency, and noted that “Chamco Digital’s experienced team will help healthcare organizations determine the right provisioning, so results are achieved without overspending.”
Chamco Digital notes that the healthcare sector would also likely be concerned about cloud security, and affirms that Chamco Digital will step up efforts to aid the healthcare industry in securing its data from cyber threats.
“One thing we’ve learned is that no business is immune from today’s cyber threats. There’s nowhere to hide. Instead, business leaders in healthcare organizations must also assume they will be targeted and develop sound defences.”
