RESEARCH PAPER: The Cloud Comes To Healthcare

By Matt Kimball, Patrick Moorhead - May 26, 2022

The healthcare industry has been on the leading edge of the digital transformation curve in many ways, some of which the COVID-19 pandemic has expedited. Life-critical patient data in the form of electronic health records (EHRs) and diagnostic-quality images stored in Picture Archive and Communications Systems (PACS) accompany patients as they interact with caregivers throughout the continuum of care. These tools, which have been in use for decades, can be consumed through traditional on-premise models or as-a-Service delivery (via multiple vehicles).
