Four Ways to Ensure Your Cloud-based LIMS Keeps Patient Data Safe

Cloud-based laboratory information management systems (LIMS) are highly scalable and conveniently accessible. They handle automatic updates and patches so that the software is always current. Plus, they provide state-of-the-art security to ensure sensitive patient data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. However, because labs operate in a sector where patient privacy is paramount, many hesitate to transition to the cloud.

If your lab is considering using a cloud-based LIMS, you should know that cloud solutions can be just as secure as on-premise systems — as long as they are set up correctly.

In this post, we’ll explore the benefits of a cloud-based LIMS and the measures labs can implement to maintain the privacy of sensitive patient information.
