Interview with Bernie Trudel on Healthcare in the Cloud

The healthcare industry in Asia is in somewhat of a dilemma: ageing populations and chronic diseases are resulting in higher revenues, but at the same time, governments are facing increasing pressures from citizens to reduce these higher costs. In addition, the industry is ripe for disruption, highlighted by the impressive growth of the healthtech start-up community in Q1 of 2017. Like the financial services industry, cloud computing is going to play an increasingly important role for the healthcare industry to achieves its goals. In fact, a recent IDC report predicts that healthcare will be one of the top 10 industries for cloud computing growth over the next 5 years.

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.
