Cloud Hosting Should Expect Growth in the Health Care Industry According to a Recent Report

by Atlantic.Net (11posts) under HIPAA Compliant Cloud Hosting

As a whole, the healthcare industry is very conscientious about data privacy and problems with making IT systems inter-operable have played a major part in delaying the adoption and growth of cloud computing in the industry.  Health care data has specific requirements regarding security, confidentiality, availability to authorized users, reversibility of data, and long-term preservation.  Regulations such as the electronic health record guidelines on meaningful use and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) have stunted public cloud adoption in this industry.

However, private cloud hosting and hybrid clouds are poised for growth in the health care industry.  Now, health care organizations are starting to really see the benefits of cloud computing and are turning to a private or hybrid cloud hosting solution to save on the costs of storing infrastructure locally.  HIPAA Compliant Cloud Storage has become necessary in health care with the need to store radiology images in archiving and communication systems (PACS), as well as big data sets of Electronic Medical Records (EMRs).

Just like so many other aspects of health care, the industry is slow to adopt new technologies because of privacy and regulatory concerns.  So, the industry is going through similar “growing pains” that other industries have already gone through, just at a much slower pace.  According to a recent report from MarketsandMarkets, cloud computing in the healthcare industry is said to grow to $5.4 billion by 2017, despite the regulatory and security concerns that have stunted widespread adoption of the cloud in this industry.
