Business Strategy: IDC MaturityScape — Cloud in Healthcare Payers
This IDC Health Insights report discusses IDC's Cloud MaturityScape for healthcare payer organizations that are interested in understanding how they can take the necessary actions to move forward successfully with cloud computing. Healthcare payers have unique constraints as well as compelling business needs that make cloud attractive. This healthcare payer maturity model is updated to include results from IDC's 2014 CloudView Survey, which shows that over 87% of healthcare organizations indicate that they will be piloting, using, or otherwise managing some form of cloud — public, private, or hybrid — as a part of their IT infrastructure in the next 24 months.
According to IDC Research Director Deanne Kasim, "The use of cloud computing as an increasingly business-critical technology is quickly changing how healthcare payers evaluate, procure, and deploy IT assets. Health plan IT departments will need to operate in an environment that is centralized and focused on service delivery and more predictable expenditures as they face the challenges of healthcare reform."Please Note: Extended description available upon request.
