North America Healthcare Cloud Computing Market: Snapshot

Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted in healthcare owing to the increasing demand for improved healthcare at reduced costs. In order to attain these goals, healthcare providers are implementing Clinical Information System such as Electronic Health Record (EMR), Radiology Information System (RIS), and Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) among others.

Cloud computing helps store, process, and manage data from different locations, and delivers information over the Internet. The four forms in which cloud computing as a technology is used in the healthcare industry are computation, storage, memory, and networking.

One of the key factors driving the North America healthcare cloud computing market include legislative reform of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). In addition, advanced features of cloud-based healthcare services and federal mandates for insuring every citizen in the U.S. are some other key growth drivers. In addition, cloud computing offers other benefits such as cost reduction, improved accessibility and mobility, positive returns on investment, improvements in storage technology, and greater flexibility and scalability of data.

The improved healthcare infrastructure, predominantly in the U.S. and Canada account for the high growth of North America healthcare cloud computing market. In 2012, America Hospital Association (AHA) conducted a survey for the total number of registered hospitals in the U.S. Registered hospitals that fulfilled the criteria of AHA were 5,723 in number in 2012. Thus, the improved healthcare system in the U.S. has been instrumental in significant rise in demand for cloud computing services for high quality patient care and healthcare services.

North America Healthcare Cloud Computing Market: Overview

Cloud computing is an internet-based computing model that provides and sources information technology services, such as servers, applications, and storage, on a pay-per-use basis. Cloud services are renowned for their flexible nature - they can be easily configured, scaled, and adapted - and require lower capitals investment and ongoing maintenance and operating expenses as compared to traditional IT models. 

Cloud computing boasts of an infrastructure capable of enabling all crucial verticals of the healthcare industry to incorporate computing resources in everyday operations and processes at lower costs and at a high level of agility. In the past few years, these has been a huge surge of interest among healthcare companies in North America about the potential of cloud computing in improving operational efficiency of a variety of healthcare processes. It is estimated that the North America market for healthcare cloud computing will exhibit growth at a significant pace in the next few years and in a matter of few years, all healthcare systems in the regions will come under the umbrella of pure or hybrid healthcare cloud computing models.
