Why Healthcare?

According to IDC, the healthcare industry in North American will reach $40.7 billion this year and continue to grow at a 4-year annual growth rate of 8.8 percent.*

While rich in opportunity, healthcare is also among the most challenging industries in which to specialize. Technology needs for hospitals and other healthcare facilities are complicated by a range of factors that include expanding industry regulations, increasing confidentiality concerns, deeply imbedded proprietary processes and newer initiatives such as electronic medical records (EMR). To succeed, partners must differentiate themselves as trusted advisors and healthcare specialists who understand these unique issues and can provide the complete data center solutions today’s hospitals, clinics and managed care facilities need to remain competitive, cost-effective and compliant.
