The healthcare industry is currently experiencing a massive shift in the generation, consumption, storage, and sharing of healthcare data. This paradigm shift is now driving the healthcare industry further ahead in its cloud adoption. For an industry that has historically lagged behind its contemporaries, cloud computing is an innovation for health care organizations. Cloud computing is an approach to applying (information) technology in health care organizations, which is a sharp contrast to traditional health IT approaches.
On that note, experts expect the healthcare cloud computing market to expand exponentially by 2025 and grow up to $55 billion. Particularly with the proliferation of software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (Paas), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions over the last few years, the time looks ripe for the healthcare industry to take advantage of these new solutions. SaaS is the most basic form of cloud computing, with centrally stored data accessed by users through a web browser. An example of SaaS is web-based email or an interface reached via a web browser. On the other hand, PaaS enables healthcare providers to code and deploy applications efficiently and quickly. IaaS, similarly, offers on-demand computing and large storage for medical facilities-giving them the flexibility to purchase as their needs grow. However, with substantial growth come bigger challenges. With networked systems, such as those found in cloud computing, there’s always the possibility of a breach. Healthcare facilities and IT teams, therefore, also need to focus on cybersecurity to prevent costly data breaches and HIPAA violations.
At this juncture, many healthcare cloud solution providers are entering the domain with advanced and integrated offerings. To help the healthcare sector strengthen its operational capabilities and simultaneously enable growth in the industry, Healthcare Tech Outlook has compiled a list of the top healthcare cloud solution providers.
