Title: Cloud Disrupting Healthcare

Cloud Disrupting Healthcare
The healthcare industry once was one of the
slowest fields to adopt new technologies. This
has to do with the fears around security and the
privacy of patient data. Healthcare companies
always preferred to keep data onsite hiding
behind firewalls as opposed to maintaining it on
something as intangible as the cloud.
Managed Services Overview
Past Challenges
Healthcare IT had stayed away from the cloud due
to the following challenges.
1. Privacy and security challenges Apart from the
common issues relating to security and privacy
associated with cloud, the healthcare industry is
 governed by social and government bodies such
HIPAA, and therefore they are obligated to comply
with certain stipulated rules and regulations
surrounding the security of patient data. 2.
Service reliability and viability Cloud is
essentially a third party service. The reality is
that all cloud ecosystems and enterprise
infrastructures would be interrupted to some
degree at some point in time. Mission critical
healthcare IT applications must meet very high
performance standards, availability standards,
and reliability standards. This challenge is
critical to the industry.
3. Transition and portability of data Another
barrier that impacted some healthcare
organizations willingness to adopt cloud
computing was the concern regarding the ability
to transition to another cloud vendor or back to
the healthcare organization without disrupting
operations or introducing conflicting claims to
the data.
Cloud Adoption in Healthcare Today
The need for information to follow the patients
wherever they go has been identified by multiple
government agencies. Hence, the healthcare sector
today is actively adopting cloud computing to
record and store patient information. The
platform of an electronic health information
exchange (HIE) has been created to fulfill this
requirement. The office of the department of
health and human services has led the process of
establishing the essential building blocks that
will support HIEs. Key stakeholders of these HIEs
include doctors, nurses, hospitals, provider
offices, clinics, insurance companies, reporting
agencies, pharmacies, and, most importantly, the
patients themselves.
Current and Future Use of Cloud
Current Usage Model for Cloud
2014 HIMSS Analytics Cloud Survey revealed that
83 of healthcare organizations have already
adopted cloud computing. 67 of those are
utilizing cloud through SaaS-based applications
while 15.3 running on an Infrastructure-as-a-Serv
ice (IaaS).
Top three reasons why healthcare adopted cloud
  • Less cost
  • 2.Rapid deployment
  • 3.Lack of internal expertise

Patient Portal Industrys New Trend
The patient portal takes a patient-centered
approach in creating a more comprehensive picture
of health history and needs of the patients. It
is an online community for the patients to access
their information 24/7 outside of the hospital or
the doctors office. By encouraging participation
in electronic health exchanges, the office of the
national coordinator expects to see a re-design
of the health system process resulting in highly
efficient and effective care delivery. This will
 decrease cost, increase quality, and improve
patient satisfaction. Patient care will be driven
by evidence-based decisions, made at the point of
care, and delivered through an integrated
workflow process.
Benefits of Patient Portal
  • Become engaged and involved in ones own health
    at all levels in both prevention
  • and treatment
  • Access health information anytime and from any
  • Build medical history
  • Interact with physician, health care providers
    and even pharmacists through
  • electronic messaging
  • Schedule and modify appointments within
    reasonable time frame
  • Review results of test and procedures
  • Share updated health care resources

Business Process
The following information can be stored and
shared through the patient portal maintained on
the cloud
  • History of illness
  • Surgery including events surrounding the surgery
  • Injuries
  • Allergies to food or drugs

Other Areas of Cloud Use
Cloud computing offers significant advantages to
the healthcare sector. Doctors, hospitals, and
clinics gain quick access to computing and large
storage facilities which are not provided in the
traditional settings. From healthcare providers
to pharmacists, they all have something to gain
from moving towards the cloud. The
implementations of cloud are infinite.
  • Clinical research Improvement in research and
    drug development.
  • Electronic medical record (EMR) EMR is a
    digital version of patients comprehensive
    medical history used by providers for diagnosis
    and treatment. EMR allows the patient to take
    their medical history, even when they change
    doctors or relocate to a different state.
  • Collaborated solution Patient portal and other
    cloud-based solutions help accelerate
    collaborative decision-making on appropriate
    treatments. For example, electronic documentation
    from the patients primary care physician,
    consulting physicians, hospitals, and ambulatory
    centers can be automatically transmitted
    electronically to the patient portal.

  • Telemedicine Telemedicinealso known as
    telehealth or sometimes as e-healthis an old
    practice that allows health professionals to
    diagnose and treat patients remotely via
    telephone and telecommunications technology. The
    modern-day telemedicine takes advantage of cloud
    storage. Cloud-based solutions help healthcare
    professionals to meet patients in real-time using
    face-to-face video-conferencing and mobile apps.
  • Big data analytics Healthcare organizations are
    in an early stage in leveraging big data
    technology to capture structured and unstructured
    medical data to get a complete view of patient
    care. One of the earliest uses of big data
    analytics in healthcare industry is in an area of
    predictive analyticsinsights which help in
    making the right decisions at the right time for
    the patients.

The majority of healthcare organizations today
have already taken major leap forward to adopt
cloud computing. Due to the shift of the
industrys focus to become more patient-centric,
healthcare realized cloud is the answer to
collaborative partnerships and fast access to
patient information. Software as a Service (SaaS)
is the most attractive cloud model for healthcare
due to its low cost, rapid deployment, high
scalability, and minimum requirements of special
expertise of healthcare staff.
