Shane, can you share with us, especially for those healthcare organizations looking to transform IT, what prompted your organization to begin the process and how did you prioritize which things to address first?
The short answer is that healthcare is changing faster than IT. We had been doing things the same way for 20+ years and we needed to flip that on its head. IT had to transform.
Prior to beginning our transformation journey, we were doing what we had always done: We bought servers and storage on demand, little thought was given to any cloud based solutions, inventory control was minimal, cyber program adoption was not realized at all levels, patching was not enforced and the way we were leveraging our IT personnel was inefficient at best.
