ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global Net Access (GNAX) Health, a leading healthcare technology infrastructure and application delivery service provider, will present its cloud computing, Archive and VNA solutions at HIMSS12 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, February 21-23, 2012.

HIMSS attendees, media and guests can learn more about private healthcare cloud computing and keeping protected health information secure in the cloud during Lecture KCS50: “Dip Your Toe in the Cloud: How to Get Started with Cloud Computing in Healthcare”, Thursday, February 23, 2012, 3:45 – 4:30 PM.

The session highlights Emory Healthcare’s journey to cloud computing using ancillary, niche applications. The session features Mariano Maluf, Chief Technology Officer, GNAX Health, president of the global VMware User Group and three-time recipient of VMware’s vExpert award.

GNAX Health offers private cloud, multi-tenant cloud, and distributed object-based elastic storage (DOES™) for healthcare providers; including a vendor neutral archive (VNA) for medical image sharing and archival. Michael Gray of Gray Consulting, who presented a HIMSS webinar on January 26, 2012: Breaking the VNA Entry Barrier, agrees that VNAs solve most of the problems associated with PACS, can save money over the long term, and prepare an enterprise to participate in a health information exchange (HIE).

“How to Get Started with Cloud Computing in Healthcare”

 

“In healthcare, the move to cloud storage and computing is inevitable,” mentions Maluf. Gartner predicts the cloud market will reach $150 billion by 2013. However, KLAS continues to report confusion among providers as to what exactly cloud computing is. “With this confluence of industry drivers, we expect heavy interest in our private and multi-tenant healthcare cloud solutions at HIMSS,” concludes Maluf. The company’s services also include diverse geographic redundancy, complete security and high availability for disaster recovery and backup needs—all of which can be discussed with GNAX Health executives in booth #2875.
