Healthcare providers are facing delays in implementing big data projects because of continuous recommendation requests exchanged between the development teams and the operations unit. The approach of DevOps may significantly bring down the delay in deployment. DevOps is the delivery of advanced services with the goal of reducing the systems development life cycle. It allows for the rapid delivery of features, fixes, and updates.
Improves infrastructure efficiency: DevOps offers ways to leverage resources in the healthcare industry with more efficiency. It helps the healthcare providers innovate faster through automating and streamlining the software development and infrastructure management processes. DevOps model creates an environment where the teams work together and optimize the productivity of developers and the reliability of operations by removing the barriers between development and operations. DevOps help to use only the necessary resources to develop an application or solution. Also, it enables software and applications to be built using a microservices architecture which increases flexibility, decouples large, complex systems into simple, independent projects and eventually helps organizations to move more quickly.
Data-driven approach: With the rapid growth of patient data, the industry is turning to DevOps to accelerate complex big data projects deployments. Delays in deployments are followed by the rising cost in the software development lifecycle. DevOps employs practices to automate processes, which historically have been manual and slow. It transforms the way of designing, building and delivering of data-driven applications. Organizations can outweigh any integration challenges by pairing big data with DevOps. it helps providers in reducing treatment costs, predicting outbreaks of epidemics, avoiding preventable diseases, and improving patient treatment and care quality and outcomes.
Data security: DevOps leverages collaboration, monitoring, automation, and cloud adoption. DevOps offers rapid on-boarding of applications by automating end-to-end delivery, facilitate continuous integration and development across leading cloud platforms. DevOps supports the industry with confidentiality, integrity, and security in compliance with a set of rules.
Implementation of DevOps practices in IT operations allows healthcare providers to be more effective in serving their patients. It helps the healthcare industry to be competitive in the race and eventually improves medical treatment, care and outcomes.
