The Health Cloud is the Key to Digital Transformation
Traditionally, the healthcare industry has underutilized technology to improve care delivery. As a result, healthcare data is now siloed between departments and applications, making access to a patient’s longitudinal record complex—if not impossible. And most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic exposed even more limitations of current healthcare IT infrastructure running on legacy technologies.
Organizations are starting to adopt new technologies to accelerate digital transformation to drive efficiency, streamline workflows and increase the breadth and quality of patient care. These initiatives often require large upfront capital expenditures, to reduce the cost of digital transformation, healthcare leaders are investing in cloud computing.
This white paper explores how cloud computing fits into the healthcare IT landscape. The key focus is to bring strategic awareness on when and how to adopt cloud technology. It further explains why the health cloud is key to driving digital transformation.
