NEEDHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
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 (News - Alert), 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 government.
"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
