The healthcare industry has been slow to adopt new technologies, including the cloud. However, industry-wide demand to use health data to improve system efficiency, deliver value-based care and enable productive collaborations is driving investment in cloud solutions.
At the heart of these innovations is a clear shift in healthcare providers’ attitude toward cloud solutions with key decision makers now convinced that cloud environments are more secure than on-premise infrastructure, especially in terms of data back-up and disaster recovery.
Frost & Sullivan’s research, Healthcare Cloud Computing Outlook, Global, 2016-2021, finds that the global market for healthcare cloud computing — revenue generated by cloud computing services offered to providers — will be worth almost $10 billion by 2021, primarily driven by the need to store the exponentially increasing volume of healthcare data. The research analyses key growth opportunities, business models, challenges, drivers, and industry-specific solutions being introduced using cloud platforms. Market participants, buyer behaviour, and customer expectations are also assessed.
