Cloud Migration for Better Patient Care


“We take our responsibility to protect patient data very seriously. The Google Cloud Platform provides significant advantages in data security over on-premises systems and helps us achieve HIPAA compliance.”

Better Patient Insights, Care & Collaboration.

Google Cloud Supports HIPAA Compliance with Industry-Leading Security So You Can Discover Insights for Better Care, Deliver Seamless Experiences, and Collaborate More Effectively.

Did you know healthcare data doubles every 18 months? Patient files, personnel records, background checks, legal documents, licenses, insurance paperwork…the volume of digitized data is exploding. At the same time, your workforce is stretched thin, and the existing tools for the healthcare industry are cumbersome, fragmented, siloed, and static. To keep pace with growth and healthcare trends, you need a scalable, HIPAA-compliant cloud solution that expands with your organization and outsources labor securely. Google Cloud Platform is a high-performance computing solution for a range of industry needs, from machine learning to genomics.

Process petabytes of healthcare data faster with Big Data tools. Turn massive amounts of genomic, imaging, clinical, or insurance data into health breakthroughs, better care, and more streamlined operations with our Big Data solutions. BigQuery, our fully managed serverless data warehouse, allows you to quickly find meaningful insights without having to manage infrastructure. Our Genomics tools are based on years of Google innovation and can process petabytes of data (even in parallel) faster than can be done on premises.

Managing data can be overwhelming, and errors are costly. GCP makes it simpler, but as you move to the cloud, it’s helpful to have a qualified partner that’s as focused on data security and organization as you are. Launch Consulting is an expert GCP partner with extensive experience working for some of the country’s largest healthcare organizations. We’ll conduct a targeted assessment of your infrastructure environment to diagnose your pain points and devise a treatment plan. Over just a few weeks, we’ll provide recommendations on how to right-size your VMs, profile your workloads for cloud migration readiness, estimate the effort to migrate, and compare your current costs to GCP-based options to optimize your ongoing costs – and we’ll do it all for free.

Companies such as Walgreens, the Broad Institute, Autism Speaks, and the Institute for Systems Biology use GCP to improve the speed of access to clinical data, speed and scalability for human genome analysis, and speed of biomedical discoveries. Our solutions are easily adaptable for multi-cloud or hybrid environments, and we have services to help you migrate quickly and securely. So get back to what you got into the industry for taking care of people and using data to create a healthier tomorrow.

Grow Revenue & Reduce Costs.

As you know, aspects such as increasing patient satisfaction, reducing readmissions, reducing unnecessary testing, staying a step ahead of the competition in service offerings, and understanding revenue cycles and performance, and many other aspects all play a part in growing revenues and cutting costs.

Google Cloud has the solutions your company needs to increase operational efficiencies and powerful machine learning and analytic solutions to improve everything from client satisfaction to better patient diagnoses to gaining a competitive edge over your competition. Moving to Google Cloud can also reduce costs in terms of maintaining and managing your IT systems since your company does not need to purchase and upkeep expensive on-site systems and equipment. Cost reductions will also be realized in less energy consumption and fewer time delays.

Companies that utilize Google Cloud Platform typically realize 60% in cost savings compared to companies that use other cloud services in the form of sustained use discounts, rightsizing recommendations, list price discounts, and more. As a Google Premier Partner, Launch will also assist your company in receiving a free trial with a $300 credit to get your projects up and running smoothly.

Improve Customer Experience & Colleague Collaboration.

Patient satisfaction goes beyond the face-to-face interactions you have with your patients.

Patient satisfaction goes beyond the face-to-face interactions you have with your patients. Google Cloud and Launch can help you improve the satisfaction of your patients in many other ways.
