In November 2017, HIMSS Media conducted its inaugural healthcare Cloud Computing Survey. The survey’s goal: To give a snapshot that shows where healthcare organizations are in their journey to the cloud.

A key takeaway, and there were many, is that of the 151 qualified respondents, 75% agreed with the statement: “I feel optimistic that cloud technology will lead to improved point-of-care decision making.”

In this session, HIMSS Media’s Janet King, senior director, market insights, gives a quick overview of the survey’s findings. Janet will address:

  • How fast cloud computing is accelerating in healthcare.
  • Cloud models in use today by percentage: public, hybrid, private.
  • Leading strategic use case.
  • The percentage of providers that plan to use cloud-based EHRs in the next two years.
  • Security and other leading concerns, such as integration, compliance and lack of in-house expertise.

Janet’s presentation will provide attendees with a great perspective in how their cloud journey compares to their peers.
