Wizards: Transforming the Healthcare Industry Through the Seamless Integration of Microsoft Azure

Enhancing Efficiency, Security, and Compliance in Japanese Hospitals! 

It is indisputable that we are seeing unheard-of breakthroughs in the field of healthcare in a world where technological developments are influencing how healthcare will develop in the future. The possibilities range from ground-breaking telemedicine developments to cutting-edge robotics and AI research. It is vital to investigate and comprehend the impact of these developments on healthcare delivery and patient outcomes as we set out on this transformative journey.

One company, in particular, is a game-changer. By seamlessly connecting Microsoft Azure with Hospital Information Systems (HIS), Wizards, a Microsoft Cloud Services Provider (CSP) program partner, is revolutionizing the look of medical facilities in Japan. Along with improving efficiency and security in hospital communications, clinical collaboration, and patient administration, this integration also makes sure that all rules are strictly followed.

Through their collaboration with Microsoft Azure, Wizards has transformed healthcare services thanks to their adept IT integration skills.

Leveraging Azure’s latest security functions and fully managed services, Wizards offers secure high-speed CommunIcation and stable hospital operations while contributing to the enhancement of medical IT technology.

Healthcare organizations that struggle to respond to attacks on their IT infrastructure benefit from the company’s work, which is directed by CEO Toshikazu Hashimoto. Wizards are experts at swiftly and easily implementing Azure—which is notorious for its extremely complex design processes—for and implementation by customers with mission-critical needs, like hospitals and emergency rooms.

It strives to align network security and infrastructure with local, state, and municipal hospital legislation as well as with public medical standards and regulations for healthcare institutions. Three fundamental qualities—survey skills, a propensity for paying attention to consumer demands, and familiarity with cloud technology—are essential for success in this attempt.

Let us explore further into their odyssey!

Revolutionize Healthcare Efficiency and Security

With the help of Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD), a special virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) hosted in the cloud, the One-Stop Azure Cloud Integrator Wizards offer cloud integration services. Additionally, they provide their own network infrastructure known as Hospital Exchange (HXC), which uses wireless broadband technologies like 4G or 5G/LTE to securely link HIS networks with Microsoft Azure. Hospitals may operate more effectively and spend less on administration and patient care because of this infrastructure. Microsoft Azure is the best option for defending healthcare organizations against cyberattacks due to its robust security features. Healthcare firms may easily integrate their IT infrastructure with Azure thanks to the safe, scalable, and adaptable product packages provided by The Wizards. As a result, they can secure their networks for the upkeep of medical equipment. 

In order to address the demands of mission-critical operations in healthcare and medical institutions, Wizards uses CSP programs that are designed to employ AVD as solutions. It is careful to build up different customization policies that are selected for each firm and make sure they are compatible with Microsoft Windows while providing AVD. Wizards, a cloud integrator, makes this feasible by developing specially created product bundles.

While implementing VDI, CSP programs also take the probability of hardware failure into account. Up until recently, VDI support could only be provided by expensive storage devices and specialized hardware for human-customer interface (HCI). Due to the high level of expertise and knowledge required and the specialized gear required, its operational costs are also frequently on the higher side.

CSP uses the most recent technology along with AVD to assure business continuity and disaster recovery for the business operations of hospitals and medical facilities in order to mitigate the burden of hardware failure. Additionally, CSP ensures that their experience running a DaaS like AVD is simpler by providing ongoing assistance.

Automate, Analyze and Improve

Wizards offers its HXC product over the cloud to assist clients in streamlining their business procedures at crucial locations by using its status as a CSP program partner. It painstakingly plans the implementation and frees clients from having to carry out that load.

Wizards uses its platform to automatically analyze client IT systems and network security every day without the need for input. If a problem is found, a step-by-step procedure is followed in order to react swiftly and fix the problem. The business informs the client of the detected data anomaly, gets their approval, and receives the necessary authorization to change the system.

The plan-do-check-act cycle governs Wizards’ approach to implementing HXC, which involves putting out fresh concepts to regulate and continuously enhance its operations and output. It consistently carries out the cycle to uphold the caliber of its services. Because of this, customers automatically improve the management and automation of their corporate processes.

Streamlining Business Processes

Offerings from Wizards have significantly streamlined business processes and healthcare delivery for Japanese hospitals and medical device manufacturers. For patient testing and monitoring systems, the majority of them previously relied on asymmetric digital subscriber lines (ADSL).

However, because ADSL has been discontinued, it is no longer viable to transmit large amounts of data quickly over copper telephone lines. Many of them were unable to update the maintenance lines for their testing equipment and monitoring infrastructure despite receiving advance information from carriers that ADSL services would be suspended. This was because they lacked in-house IT staff.

Hospitals and medical device manufacturers turned to Wizards because they lacked the necessary skills to comprehend the complexity of IT networks, react to changing security regulations, and uphold compliance with the standards of the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare.

They needed to establish a strong security infrastructure, like an IPS/IDS, and make the medical equipment lines quicker than ADSL connections. All of these tasks needed to be controlled by the most recent security definition files. Additionally, they requested that the upgraded version be installed within five days, ideally after work hours, to guarantee ongoing operations.

Wizards built an extended analysis platform with the capacity to save medical logs for extended periods of time based on their requirements and offered them a dedicated line with fast throughput that didn’t require additional construction. They also developed a high-security infrastructure that continuously updates digital signatures and defense pattern files to the latest versions.

After setting up an LTE/5G router, securing the connection to Azure storage via a dedicated line, and implementing IPS/IDS on the Azure platform, it then deployed HXC. It made sure that Microsoft adequately maintained and updated the digital signatures.

Wizards created the new infrastructure as bundled goods that don’t require on-site engineers to deploy in hospitals. This made it possible for hospitals to install it with outside assistance from Wizards outside of regular business hours within the allotted five days.

The solution, which was developed in accordance with guidelines particular to hospitals, is also readily adaptable and can be upgraded and customized as needed. The LTE/5G router is automatically upgraded to the most recent version as part of the centrally managed infrastructure. It adheres to the standards set forth by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare, allowing hospitals to continue providing care for their patients and enabling makers of medical devices to create effective testing and remote monitoring apparatus. 

Impressing Over 200 Hospitals 

Its highly motivated team of professionals is what enables Wizards to complete the enormous and crucial mission of significantly changing the Japanese healthcare scene through the use of IT in hospitals and medical facilities. The team’s top priority and main motivator is coming up with fresh ideas. Its engineers provide a feeling of duty and satisfaction in serving their clients, driven by a culture that values independent thought and creativity. 

“We will continue to prove that even small companies can contribute to medical care, health, and society by mastering and making full use of the cloud,” says Hashimoto.

More than 200 main hospitals and emergency medical facilities in Japan have already embraced HXC after being impressed with Wizards’ capabilities. Its ambitious goal is to connect 500 hospitals in the next two years, as additional facilities offer to collaborate.

Wizards intends to increase the size of both its employees and its partners while still seeing stable development. Additionally, it plans to provide an analytics platform based on Al to support hospital connections for information sharing and assessment, as well as create a novel security offering by fusing HXC and Azure features.

Wizards’ commitment to using Azure to innovate healthcare delivery is what propels the company to long-term success. It is a small, nimble company with a goal to alter the IT network integration for medical institutions in a secure manner. It makes a name for itself in the healthcare industry with its cloud products.
