Even though the healthcare industry has been slower to adopt cutting-edge technologies, the ability to intelligently store, search and retrieve data of different types and sizes is poised to transform how we keep people safer and healthier as the demand for solutions to lower healthcare costs increase in the coming years. Deriving insights from large datasets is central to nearly every industry, and life sciences are no exception. To combat the rising cost of bringing drugs to market, pharmaceutical companies are looking for ways to optimize their drug development processes. They are turning to big data analytics to better quantify the effect that their drug compounds have on different populations and to look for new clinical indications for existing drugs. Providing real-time insights to healthcare providers and patients can help monitor, inform and notify not only care-givers, but also provide healthcare providers with actual data to identify issues before they become critical or to allow for earlier intervention.
As patients become armed with increasing amounts of information, we will see a significant shift to a patient-driven, and more importantly a data-driven healthcare model. In this model, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and healthcare service providers will be compelled to compete with the latest telemedicine offerings to deliver customized care at a lower cost.
A real world evidence (RWE) platform is loosely defined as an integrated set of services and products that life sciences companies use to securely acquire, store, and analyze large, often disparate datasets to gain insight into the functions of a specific drug or intervention. The petabyte-scale data generated from wearables, medical devices, genomics, clinical imaging, and claims (to name a few) allows pharmaceutical and other life sciences companies to build big data platforms to analyze these datasets. And many of them are doing it on Tegile, A Western Digital Brand.
What Healthcare Organizations Think About Tegile
When comparing Tegile against established storage vendors, healthcare organizations couldn’t believe the difference. Many things made groups like the Oklahoma Heart Hospital and Renal Ventures Management choose Tegile IntelliFlash arrays over other big-name vendors, but two major reasons stood out. Compared to traditional storage arrays, Tegile arrays are significantly faster, and about a third of the cost. They work so well that virtualization vendors have started recommending Tegile storage for upcoming healthcare customer projects.
