I came across this video from Dell that looks at the Future of Healthcare and how cloud computing is working to transform healthcare. It’s a marketing video for Dell, but it brings up some interesting points about where healthcare IT is headed:
After watching the video, I asked myself the question that’s the title of this blog post: Are There Elements of Healthcare IT That Won’t Eventually Be On the Cloud?
I think the answer is no. I think it will also take healthcare a while to actually get fully on the cloud. However, it’s happening across every aspect of healthcare IT. Plus, there are going to be a number of healthcare IT innovations in the future that are only going to be cloud based. I think genomics and personalized medicine is the perfect example. Those innovations are going to both require cloud technology to make it a reality.
