This ebook, based on the latest ZDNet / TechRepublic special feature, looks at how the industry cloud has taken off and big businesses have been built by the likes of Veeva, Rootstock and others. Healthcare delivery organizations are still worried about security, but not so much that hospital CIOs and CTOs are avoiding cloud technology. In a recent research report on cloud services in the healthcare sector, Gartner analyst Gregg Pessin reports that, "Healthcare CIOs are becoming more comfortable with the public cloud as an option than in the past, and have begun to adopt cloud-based solutions where the benefits are clear and the risks are acceptable." The idea of the cloud as an extension of internal infrastructure has helped healthcare CIOs understand the best uses of cloud technology and increased adoption rates in the sector. The healthcare sector is under tremendous pressure to operate in real time and to provide easy access to data in multiple locations.
In the past few years, the healthcare industry has undergone an ample amount of changes. These changes are more in the ways how the healthcare industry stores data. Moving backward in our distant past, remind us of the old paper-based method to keep health records. It doesn't exist anymore in our present. Instead, we have new data-keeping methods, i.e., online digital records where storing & sharing information is easy.
Despite predictions of a cloud shift accelerated by the pandemic and Gartner projecting a $651 billion public cloud market in 2024, organizations have barely scratched the surface of public cloud adoption. So it might seem odd at this stage to ask, "What's the next big thing in public clouds?" The war between traditional on-premises data center infrastructure providers such as Dell, HPE, and Cisco and the public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud is far from over. However, one opportunity worth examining is industry clouds. Industry clouds are collections of cloud services, tools, and applications optimized for the most important use cases in a specific industry.
December 14, 2016 – New York & London – DataArt, a leading global technology consultancy, predicts that 2017 will be a year of integration, disruption and transformation due in large part to the digitalization of key industry sectors. Cyber security and data protection will become major board-level concerns as financial institutions realize that failing to protect customer information will be their biggest source of regulatory non-compliance and reputational risk. Organizations will invest heavily in correcting technology vulnerabilities, lax cultures and poor processes. As a result, data management in all its forms will dominate 2017. Rapid digitalization of customer-facing services will be a matter of organizational life and death as e-commerce and fintech elevate expectations for the optimal user experience (UX).
This blog post is co-authored by Vittorio Accomazzi, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at IMS. This blog is part of a series in collaboration with our partners and customers leveraging the newly announced Azure Health Data Services. Azure Health Data Services, a platform as a service (PaaS) offering designed to support Protected Health Information (PHI) in the cloud, is a new way of working with unified data--providing care teams with a platform to support both transactional and analytical workloads from the same data store and enabling cloud computing to transform how we develop and deliver AI across the healthcare ecosystem. The first implementation of digital imaging techniques in clinical use started in the 1970s. Since then, the medical imaging industry has grown exponentially--over the last two and a half decades, there has been a significant development in image acquisition solutions, which has boosted image quality and adoption in different clinical applications.
