Healthcare Cloud Security Needs

Shameem Ahmed 4 June 2012 0

During the past few months, we’ve seen more and more healthcare oriented organizations reviewing cloud capabilities, migrating applications, and planning ahead to further migrate additional applications to the cloud. The challenge is not a simple one – on one hand, the cloud approach is very appealing. Its flexibility (and cost) increases accessibility to information and enables many business processes. For example, allowing clinicians from anywhere on the globe to review confidential patient clinical information , and make life-saving decisions in near-to real-time. On the other hand, healthcare data is highly sensitive and regulated – a fact which requires careful planning in choosing a secure cloud strategy.
