Cloud Computing in Healthcare - Thematic Research

Cloud Computing in Healthcare - Thematic Research


Software as a Service (SaaS), accessed via the public cloud, has become the most efficient way to develop and deliver software. As a result, a new breed of “cloud native” SaaS players has emerged.Cloud computing (including IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, private, and hybrid cloud services, managed cloud services and cloud management platforms) accounted for 7.6% of a global information and communications technology (ICT) market that was worth $3 trillion in 2017. While the global ICT market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1% between 2018 and 2022, cloud computing revenues, which passed $233B in 2017, are growing at more than 25%. In theory, the entire IT market could shift to the cloud, so the disruption yet to be unleashed onto the global software and IT services sector is likely to be substantial.

In recent years, investing in cloud computing technology has become an increased priority for healthcare organizations and networks. However, there is still inertia to overcome due to data security and privacy concerns, infrastructure availability, regulatory compliance worries, and a lack of the staff skills required to manage and maintain the technology.

Understanding and adopting a cloud-based model can be beneficial for healthcare, as cloud solutions offer flexibility, scalability, back-up options, and remote access to services and information. They also make sure crucial structures are still running in case of a single-point failure, and they make system recovery a lot easier and faster.
