In a recent article titled "5 Cloud Computing Advantages for the Healthcare Industry" by Rick Blaisdell from Rickscloud.com, he discusses how cloud computing is being adopted more in the healthcare industry, as well as the benefits it brings.
He discusses how the healthcare industry is constantly evolving and how "delivering higher quality medical services for less money" is becoming increasingly important. Furthermore, many hospitals, doctors, and health institutions are looking to increase their efficiency while continually cutting back on spending. He states, "Cloud computing provides to the health care environment the opportunity to improve services for patients, to easily share information, to improve operational efficiency, and to streamline costs." Cloud computing allows you to share information across many devices, which will result in improved efficiency across the company, as well as cutting back on time, which in turn saves you money.
Cloud Computing Benefits:
He talks about how in many daily situations information may be needed in two places at once. Cloud computing enables you to link and share that data in real time with multiple sources.
For example, hc1.com allows your VP of sales to have a pulse on a client’s status while his sales rep is out in the field leveraging this same actionable intelligence with a mobile device.
Cloud computing services are able to update quicker, and they are able to do so without interrupting the service being performed at the time. Furthermore, with cloud computing you can gain real time updates of test and patient information.
Rather than waiting weeks or even months to compile reports with excel spreadsheets, hc1.com allows you to see clinical and business information in real-time.
When healthcare providers use cloud-based systems, the doctors are able to gain access to information from any mobile device or tablet.
