Healthcare Cloud Computing
Cloud computing services are progressively moving into the healthcare industry. The pressure on budgets and changes within most healthcare organizations are increasing the interest on cloud-based platforms.
Healthcare systems globally are facing unprecedented changes. Shifting demographics, fiscal pressures, an increased need for digital technologies and rising consumer expectations are creating significant challenges and opportunities. Populations are aging, and chronic illness is becoming more prevalent. Governments and private healthcare organizations are under pressure to improve patient outcomes and enhance population health while reducing costs.
Security of private data has been the reason why the slow adoption of cloud technology by healthcare organizations, until now. Market researchers assume that the healthcare industry will invest $5.4 Billion in Cloud Computing by 2017. Cloud is increasingly being seen as the infrastructure of choice for both driving innovation and optimizing cost. CIOs and CFOs need to consider how it can contribute to their business success.
A cloud-based infrastructure helps to:
- Create a more agile organization by making processes more dynamic and flexible so they quickly adapt to regulation changes with effectiveness and transparency for the best patient experience
- Shift to a “pay-as-you-go” IT infrastructure that reduces capital expenditures
- Lay the groundwork for application modernization and transform the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
To improve patient outcomes and enhance population health, cloud technology helps personalize care, secure data sharing, improve home care delivery with cloud-based communications, and implement a culture based on health.
Many applications, including industry-specific applications, can be moved to the Cloud. However, healthcare organizations operate with highly sensitive personal data and stringent regulations. Around the world, organizations must comply with mandates designed to ensure patient security and privacy. The adoption of integrated and coordinated care approaches requires a high level of multi-organization communication and orchestration.
