The paper was written to help enterprise IT and business decision makers in the healthcare industry analyze and consider the implications of cloud computing on their businesses. This whitepaper offers guidance and strategies to help decision makers evaluate and compare cloud computing offerings from different providers, taking into account requirements from medical practices, hospitals, research facilities, insurance companies and governments.

In the past several years, the market dynamics of the healthcare industry have changed significantly with the growing impact of consumerism, digitalization, preventative healthcare and regulations.

It also highlights a new set of services specifically targeted at healthcare that cloud computing enables. Prescriptive guidance has been added to the paper to help ensure successful deployment of cloud-based healthcare solutions.
