Healthcare Data has grown 878% in the last few years. Dramatic growth started with the increase in Medical Record Systems and has escalated because of new and additional business needs. Billing System, AI systems and additional applications each with their own data needs. This usage make for an ever growing and complex environment. Add to this trend practice acquisition and/or application interconnection growth and the question is not will an Outage Occur but when.
This type of growth is subject to application failures, and Ransomware and other attacks.
Besides Ransomware the Healthcare and Medical industry data and intertwined vendor growth is subject to other problems;
- Dependency on a failed third party causes cascade failure
- Healthcare billing is based on small files (HL7 and others), systems designed for processing thousands of files were never designed for billions of files, resulting in failures.
- File transfers are dependent on antiquated FTP technology resulting in successful attacks.
- Monitoring and alerting becomes impossible as multiple interconnected systems become intertwined – often times simple
What is the solution?
There is no box or magic solution. This type of problem is solved by evaluating the source of the failures, determining the severity of the failures, identifying the failures that cause the greatest systemic interruptions, making a plan that identifies all the issues and then addressing the issues one by one.
Any plan must also be flexible and be able to respond to changes as they occur.
The repair plan can include additional hardware, servers, reconfigured servers, changes in connectivity and/or operations, etc.
As parts of the plan, deployed monitoring is layered in. As monitoring is added – we add our Application Outage Avoidance (AOA) system. AOA is the integration of network device data and programmed operations. One basic example is if an alert occurs that a server is low on disk space a sequence is executed to expand the disk, avoiding an outage.
