Cloud Technology Trends to Watch in Healthcare


Apr 24, 2017 1:00am - 2:00am CDT

As healthcare organizations have implemented IT solutions in the move toward improving delivery and patient outcomes, the level of available clinical and financial data and number of IT applications has increased significantly. This data saturation and solution adoption has required organizations to find new ways to manage applications and store necessary data. While still a relatively new technology for this industry, healthcare organizations are increasingly using cloud-based storage and cloud infrastructure computing to help meet their escalating data storage and application hosting needs.

HIMSS Analytics has released the 2017 Essentials Brief: Cloud, which provides a high level snapshot of how healthcare organizations are leveraging the cloud across their organization. Speakers Brendan FitzGerald, Director of Research, and Matt Schuchardt, Director of Market Intelligence Solution Sales, will provide a review of this topic area. Additionally, they will provide detail, insights and analysis based upon data from LOGIC™ - the HIMSS Analytics market intelligence tool - on how the cloud is helping healthcare organizations realize their data management and application goals.


Learning points:
• Current and future adoption of cloud/cloud services
• Insights on cloud solutions offered by vendors
