Hold Webinar to Introduce
"Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare"
Needham, MA—The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC)
will be holding a webinar to introduce a new whitepaper,
"Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare," on
Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 11am. The webinar will be
hosted by Melvin Greer, Senior Fellow, Lockheed Martin,
Chair of the CSCC Steering Committee and Chair of the CSCC
Healthcare Working Group, along with members who worked on
the whitepaper. The whitepaper itself will be published and
available for free download next week.
The "Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare"
whitepaper provides a practical reference to help enterprise
information technology (IT) and business decision makers of
the healthcare industry as they analyze and consider the
implications of cloud computing on their business. The paper
includes guidance and strategies designed to help these
decision makers evaluate and compare cloud computing
offerings in key areas from different cloud providers,
taking into account different requirements from various
actors including medical practices, hospitals, research
facilities, insurance companies and governments.
"Modernization in the healthcare system includes use
of cloud computing. According to our CSCC members, the use
of cloud computing in healthcare will span clinical
applications including physician order entry and software
imaging and pharmacy use. Non-clinical uses will likewise
benefit, including management apps for patient billing,
claims and revenue cycle management. Healthcare providers,
patients, pharmaceuticals, insurance companies and
governments want successful strategies that help them
innovate healthcare delivery via use of the Cloud. The CSCC
has provided the strategy and guidance to help", noted
