How memory and SSDs are used to improve healthcare IT

The easy and affordable way to improve healthcare IT

How memory and SSDs speed up medical apps and enhance data security for less

Healthcare relies on technology more than ever before, which is why it’s critical to ensure the systems that help coordinate and deliver care run efficiently. From hospitals to small practices, every healthcare function – from primary care to medical records, specialists, emergency medicine, imaging, administration, human resources, and more – requires fast system performance and stringent data security. This is particularly important because in order to comply with stringent data security regulations, medical data must be stored securely to protect privacy and patient confidentiality. Memory and SSDs deliver faster performance and stronger security to improve healthcare delivery across your organisation for significantly less than the cost of new systems. Here’s how.

The benefits of adding more memory and SSDs to laptops and desktops

Laptop used for healthcare that’s powered by memory (RAM) and solid state drives (SSDs)
Benefit of installing more memory & SSDs Why it works

Comply with stringent data security regulations

Encrypting and protecting health information starts where the data is stored – on the storage drive

Secure health data

Best-in-class AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption is significantly more secure than what’s on hard drives

Speed up chronically slow medical apps used for imaging, billing, surgery, etc.

These apps require massive amounts of RAM and fast storage due to large file sizes and increased data needs

Accelerate general administrative and office performance

SSDs multiply productivity by allowing you to work 6x faster than with hard drives – serve more patients and cut time spent on everyday tasks

Reduce organisational liability

Encryption helps safeguard confidential information and prevent lawsuits that can occur if a laptop is lost, hacked, or misused

Upgrade with ease

Installing RAM and SSDs only takes a matter of minutes, which greatly reduces the amount of downtime it takes to upgrade IT systems

Often costs nearly 10x less than buying new computers1

Upgrading components allows you to extend the life of old systems and get more out of your IT budget

The benefits of adding more memory and SSDs to servers

Benefit of installing more memory & SSDs Why it works

Run day-to-day operations faster

Servers power email, file sharing, collaboration, analysis, billing, imaging, and nearly everything in the medical world. Improving system components benefits server performance and makes computing more seamless.

Optimise virtualisation today and tomorrow

More memory means more VMs per physical server, better QoS (quality of service), reduced disk thrash, and improved ability to keep up with growing workloads of the future

Reduce the residual effect of boot storms

Access data seamlessly even when many users log on to your systems at the same time with SSDs

Improve Big Data and healthcare analytics

73% of IT managers surveyed use more than 64GB of RAM for Big Data and healthcare analytics, and many use at least 128GB2

Improve long-term system performance without draining your IT budget

Installing more RAM and SSDs limits downtime and is an upgrade that benefits you as long as the server is in use

Why memory and SSDs enhance performance for less

Laptops and servers – the backbone of healthcare IT – both benefit from more RAM and SSDs. More memory is one of the most effective and affordable ways to enhance system speed, responsiveness, and longevity because memory is the resource systems use to multitask and run data-intensive medical applications. SSDs complement memory and reduce the time it takes to boot up, load apps, save documents, and transfer large files, which are particularly common in healthcare.

Why SSDs enhance security

Compared to what’s commonly used in healthcare – hard drives – SSDs deliver hardware-based encryption that uniquely removes the security gaps and slow speeds that are inherent with software-based encryption found in hard drives.

The bottom line: Improve healthcare by improving the systems used to deliver it

Time is more important in healthcare than perhaps any other industry because lives are on the line. Days, hours, and minutes are extremely valuable but they can’t be regained once they’re lost. In the same way, the sensitivity of medical data may cause irreparable damage if a data breach occurs. Enhance performance, security, and your IT budget with Crucial® memory and SSDs, and provide patients with a more seamless healthcare experience.
