Can cloud computing benefit health services? - a SWOT analysis
There has been a massive shift in the generation, consumption, storage, and sharing of healthcare data. From conventional storage to digitalization of healthcare data, the healthcare industry has sure come a long way in optimizing its data management practices. For an industry that has historically lagged behind its contemporaries, the healthcare segment is leading on cloud adoption. Healthcare thus proved to be farthest along with cloud adoption when compared to other industries.
Metrics details. Cloud computing is a recent and fast growing area of development in healthcare. Ubiquitous, on-demand access to virtually endless resources in combination with a pay-per-use model allow for new ways of developing, delivering and using services. Thus, the objective of this scoping review was to identify the current state and hot topics in research on cloud computing in healthcare beyond this traditional domain.
Over the last few years, the adoption of cloud technology has been increasing at a frenetic pace. As recent research has shown, the global market for cloud technologies in the healthcare industry is expected to grow by USD Although the pandemic impacts are still unfolding, it's already clear that not all industries will suffer the same, with some even showing promising growth. The healthcare and technology sectors seem to fall into this category, making the upcoming years very promising for the global healthcare cloud computing market. As social distancing became the new norm, healthcare providers had to rethink the doctor-patient interactions, and trends that were previously slowly developing, like telehealth, have been sped up exponentially.
