Symantec announces new solution for healthcare industry

Symantec Corp. has announced the Symantec Healthcare Provider Solution, a new solution, comprised of products, services and best practices to help healthcare providers protect and manage their critical infrastructure and ensure vital patient information is both protected and accessible.                                                            Symantec is helping hospitals and provider networks manage IT risk and maximize IT performance by standardizing and automating their software and processes. Advances in medical digital imaging and electronic medical records (EMRs) have enabled healthcare providers to streamline diagnosis and treatment, reduce medical errors, increase efficiency and improve patient care. At the same time, it has also introduced disparate systems and storage environments that led to rapid growth of data stores, the company said. The Veritas storage software solutions from Symantec provide customers with storage management, backup and recovery and archiving technologies, giving them better availability, utilization and scalability of storage. Symantec also helps healthcare customers automate compliance amid changing industry regulations. Symantec solutions also help to remediate deviations to standards, enabling immediate corrective actions or triggers to third party response workflow systems, the company added. Symantec also helps healthcare customers expedite legal discovery and prevent data loss. It offers a comprehensive solution to manage risks across the information and messaging lifecycle in healthcare provider organizations. The Symantec Healthcare Industry Solution helps providers reduce the cost of infrastructure and administering the messaging system, while also preventing leaks of confidential patient information. The solution helps in managing arduous regulations such as the revised Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) that require rapid, effective legal discovery of those emails and other electronic communications, the company said. As a provider of healthcare information technology solutions in the US, even Cerner Corp. has partnered with Symantec for the past three years to help address the IT requirements of healthcare providers. As there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to solving healthcare IT challenges, Symantec offers the healthcare industry consulting services and product solutions that hospitals and provider networks can tailor to their IT needs. With the launch of the Symantec Healthcare Provider Solution, Symantec enables hospitals and provider networks to better address their unique business challenges, and improve the delivery of patient care through technology, the company added.
