The healthcare industry faces a variety of challenges in how it secures and accelerates online health platforms and protects patient data. New technologies make providing healthcare services more efficient, but also introduce potential security risks.
Consumer expectations have changed as well. Patients expect to be able to virtually access information, set up appointments, and consult with healthcare professionals. However, not all healthcare providers are technologically prepared for this shift.
In addition, virtual health services became a necessity rather than a luxury with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With most people confined to their homes, in-person services could only be provided in urgent cases. The result: data security, web performance, and reliability have never been more important for healthcare.
