Healthcare Migration to the Cloud

Implementation of cloud delivery services in healthcare lagged the overall IT industry for many years but recent surveys show accelerating movement in that direction.

In addition to the SaaS model for application access we are also seeing more and more healthcare organizations migrating databases, legacy applications, and services like disaster recovery provisioning to the cloud.

A survey from HIMSS Analytics conducted in early 2017 found that 65% of all healthcare organizations were utilizing cloud based offerings.

The healthcare cloud delivery market is estimated to triple in expenditures from 2015 to 2020 resulting in total spend of almost $10 billion.

In order to avoid access related problems it is critical you work with a proven partner regarding your cloud migration.

In summary, any reluctance the healthcare industry had to cloud based application delivery and use of the cloud for infrastructure and storage is largely in the past.

Achieving all the benefits of cloud migration requires careful planning and working with an experienced partner.
