Cloud Standards Customer Council to Hold Webinar to Introduce "Impact of Cloud Computing on Healthcare" Whitepaper

NEEDHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

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 (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 Mr. Greer.
