No time for a proper group photo because the #accacloud had such an intense discussion on the Thai cloud and digital economy in #Bangkok, so a selfie will have to suffice. Thank you everyone for participating in our ICT trade dialogue and networking so readily!

HEALTHCARE CLOUD 2016

stethoscope

The use of cloud computing in healthcare has been core to a transformation of the healthcare industry. However, delivery of better patient management and care via electronic health records, personal wellness monitoring, and other cloud-enabled methods of patient care has raised concerns with regard to legal compliance and preserving the privacy of patients. Privacy, security, reliability, audit, limits on data use and data segregation are among the issues that surface when discussing cloud services for healthcare. To better understand these needs, and the opportunities for the adoption of cloud computing, the ACCA is bringing together in roundtable discussions experts from healthcare and cloud services to discuss the issues facing the Healthcare Industry that are perceived to be barriers to the adoption of cloud computing. Find a roundtable in your city to join today!
