In an article last week on EnterpriseTech, writer Alison Diana explains how healthcare organizations are now relying on Cloud to do more than support electronic medical records. While the healthcare industry has lagged behind others in cloud adoption, Research and Markets says an "increasing number of companies are coming forward, adopting and utilizing cloud-based applications."
Healthcare industries have been hesitant about adopting Cloud due to security concerns and the need to remain HIPAA compliant, but scalability and remote backup at multiple locations ensure healthcare organizations remain safe and operational. With Cloud being used to cut costs and free up IT staff to allow them to focus on more important things, it's no wonder that "Virtually every CFO in American healthcare is talking about cloud", says Amit Cohen, CEO of FortyCloud.
Companies see cloud as a solution to security, disaster recovery, business continuity, and compliance challenges. Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and dinCloud have healthcare cloud offerings including virtual desktops and cloud storage.
