New BT secure datacentre service cuts IT costs for NHS
(3 November 2014 )
BT today announced that it has launched BT Compute for Health, a new secure managed hosting service tailored to the health market.
BT today announced that it has launched BT Compute for Health, a new secure managed hosting service tailored to the health market. The service can support secure applications containing patient identifiable information, from critical electronic patient record applications to off the shelf products such as SharePoint.
As the drive to become paperless means even more pressure on IT systems, managed hosting can help reduce IT costs, better support the needs of the NHS and offers high levels of availability, compliance and resilience.
Compute for Health complies with stringent NHS information governance security standards and critically can carry patient identifiable data – something which is essential in a healthcare environment where patient confidentiality is paramount.
Information is hosted by BT in a dual-sited, secure UK datacentre and delivered via N3, the network BT built and runs for the NHS. The service incorporates disaster recovery and back-up capabilities, meaning greater security for customer data.
David Furniss, vice president of Propositions and Frameworks, Global Government and Health, BT Global Services, said: “It’s well-known that the health market faces some tough challenges – an ageing population, a rise in long-term conditions, increasing costs and financial restraints, and increasing expectations. Compute for Health can help organisations rise to these challenges, become more agile and significantly reduce the cost of investing in new technology."
“BT has unrivalled experience in the health market and understands the complexity and security issues it faces. We also understand the journey it’s on and our range of data management services can steer them through - whether they choose to opt to host some key applications in our UK-based data centres or need a full end-to-end managed service, BT has the solution.”
