We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 12/15 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by David Fuller (@genkidave) on the topic of “What’s Keeping HealthIT From Soaring to the Cloud?.”
Premise and Private HealthIT architectures have ruled in healthcare and were unfortunately reinforced by the timing of ACA/HITECH. Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and other cloud-native approaches are revolutionizing all industries, and while for some somewhat valid reasons Healthcare has been slow to adopt the Cloud it’s now firmly ripe for transformation. So what are the forces keeping HealthIT from soaring to the Cloud? And how will cloud adoption in other industries and also within certain sectors of the healthcare landscape such as pharma and insurance give HealthIT the lift it needs to get off The Ground and into The Cloud?
Join us as we dive into this topic during this week’s #HITsm chat using the following questions.
