Cloud for health care: Avoid these 2 pain points

Posted on 10-05-2019 , by: admin , in , 0 Comments

The global health care cloud computing market is estimated to grow at an annual growth rate of around 14 percent from 2019 to 2026. If you’ve done the math, that puts the market value around $40 billion by 2026. 

When it came to whole industries closing their eyes to the rise of cloud computing, health care companies once comprised my biggest group of deniers. Most would not even take meetings, even though the scary public cloud held previously unattainable solutions for them. Now health care IT is no longer afraid of cloud computing—on the provider or payer side.

What changed?

Increased use of IT in the health care industry in general resulted in greater acceptance of cloud computing. health care went from being the most underautomated industry to the second or third most automated, depending on the survey. 

Like all industries that didn’t depend on technology for data recordkeeping, health care now faces major challenges, including a high initial investment and a lack of qualified staff. This has driven health care companies to look to the cloud, where you can do more with fewer dollars and fewer people. 

However, right now I see many health care companies make the same big mistakes.
