ACCA 2015 AGM and Fifth Anniversary in Singapore ACCA members gathered for the Q4 meetings in Singapore on 12 November 2015. The board meeting and the AGM were held at the Dimension Data offices. In addition to reviewing 2015 and planning the work agenda for 2016, the members used the opportunity to look back at the five years of the ACCA since its inception in 2010.
On the occasion of the Fifth Anniversary of the ACCA, the members also gathered for a reception at the Lantern Bar at the Fullerton Bay hotel. The reception offered members and friends a chance to unwind and connect with each other in a relaxed atmosphere against the beautiful backdrop of the Singapore Marina and the Central Business District.
Dr Lee Hing Yan, Director of National Cloud Computing Office at the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), joined the ACCA members as the guest of honour. Dr Lee offered a congratulatory toast to the ACCA members on the anniversary and commended ACCA efforts to promote cloud computing in Singapore and the region.
The ACCA organises quarterly member visits to different Asia Pacific cities to explore different facets of the technology and cloud market. The objective is to accelerate the adoption of cloud across the region, including different sectors, such as financial services, healthcare, small and medium enterprises.For more information on ACCA meetings and which Asia Pacific city we visit next, please click here.
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.
