With 900+ locations, Atrium Health is one of the largest and most progressive providers on the East Coast. It is the only healthcare system in North and South Carolina to achieve HIMSS EMR Adoption Model Stage 7 for both acute and ambulatory care. It has been named a “Most Wired” hospital for 13 consecutive years. It is a leader in data analytics strategy. And, in 2015, Senior Vice President Craig Richardville was named the CIO of the Year by CHIME and HIMSS.

Carolinas also plans to be fully in the cloud by 2019.

In this session, we sit down with Atrium Health Vice President of Information Services Pam Landis to find out why.

As Pam will discuss, it just made sense: “We were always asking, ‘Why are we buying boxes?’ We are not buying boxes and cables anymore.”

Key discussion points:

  • The cost of hosting and storage has come down and “people don’t care where the data sits.”
  • The cloud provides great disaster recovery and high availability.
  • Cloud computing cuts down on the need to constantly replace equipment and frees up staff to focus on other work.
  • Security concerns have been addressed.

After a full morning of sessions and thought-leadership focused on Cloud 101 - practical, foundational information healthcare organizations need to migrated data and operations to the cloud - we assemble speakers to share key takeaways and take questions from the audience. It’s a great way to segue into lunch and to set the stage for the afternoon’s presentations on privacy & security and innovation or “the art of the possible” that the cloud enables.
