Cloud Computing in Health Care

Increase flexibility and interoperability in a public, private or hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Business Challenges

Health care organizations are adopting cloud computing to boost efficiency and lower costs. Cloud computing in health care is now able to offer the security and privacy protection that patients and providers rely on. This enables interoperability between clinical devices and non-health-care data systems to accelerate improved patient outcomes.
