Healthcare is one of the most highly complex and fragmented verticals out of the lot supporting a widespread and diversified professional user population (i.e., clinicians) along with patients’ in life-critical situations. The healthcare industry is currently facing growing economic and regulatory pressures that make its IT infrastructure ripe for a radical change. In the light of these two factors the organizations in the healthcare industry need to take a closer look at the potential benefits of cloud computing.

As of now the top priorities for the healthcare industry are:

  • Improvement in the quality of healthcare services
  • Reduction of costs
  • Increasing access to the healthcare systems
  • Data privacy and security

Improvement in the quality of healthcare services is a potential driver for cloud computing adoption, especially given the fact that globally billions of dollars of federal incentives are provided for the delivery of quality healthcare services, and expanding the use of electronic health record (EHRs) systems as well as providing the basis for exchange of information and data across and between the providers, regardless of interoperatibility of users and providers. EHRs are expected to be used extensively by 2014. Another significant opportunity is consumer-oriented cloud application having a potential of improving healthcare communications and enabling the patients’ to manage their own records of diseases. The cloud platform also gels well with new models, which often require uninterrupted access from multiple providers to a single patient, such as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model or Accountable Care Organization (ACO).

The need to reduce costs in the healthcare industry ecosystem is a key factor for the adoption of cloud computing. This is true for all healthcare organizations, irrespective of their size and area of specialization. In making future IT investment decisions, health organizations will take an account of savings and ROI (return on investment) calculations to optimize current and future spending. For many new Health Information Exchange (HIE) models, the infrastructure is in place but the usage of which is still to take off in a big way.
