Journal updates: Health& Cloud Computing

Most healthcare organizations today need to modernize their IT infrastructure, to be able to provide safer, faster and more efficient healthcare delivery. This requires massive upgradation of their existing IT infrastructure and involves huge upfront capital expenditure and sizeable operating expenses. Cloud technology mitigates the need to invest in IT infrastructure, by providing access to hardware, computing resources, applications, and services on a'per use' model, which dramatically brings down the cost and simplifies the adoption of technology. Several EMR vendors are offering their solutions as a cloud-based offering, providing an alternative approach to help hospitals better manage the otherwise massive capital IT investments that would needed to support EMR implementations.
