Chapter 1: Introduction
According to the Healthcare Information and Management and Systems Society (HIMSS), more than 80% of IT organizations in healthcare are using cloud computing despite regulatory, security and privacy concerns. Most of the activity is confined to software as a service (SaaS) applications, but healthcare organizations are making growing use of cloud infrastructure and platforms as well. The value of cloud computing as a cost-reduction mechanism is driving more clinical applications to the infrastructure, creating new opportunities and challenges for healthcare technology suppliers.

Cloud computing for healthcare is a specialized delivery system that caters to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance and security, as well as the integration challenges of providers, payers and suppliers. The chief market dynamic driving additional growth is the further cost reduction of moving from exclusively private clouds to hybrid clouds that leverage public clouds where possible.

Study Goals and Objectives
These trends and the market size and forecast they drive concerning healthcare cloud computing will be covered in this report. It will identify market opportunities for suppliers of medical products and services, as well as internet technology (IT) firms, to address the growing demand for healthcare cloud solutions.

Reasons for Doing This Study
BCC Research believes the market for cloud services and infrastructure in healthcare represents a longterm trend that will transform the way medical systems are managed while also reducing the cost of IT replacement and upgrade. Cloud computing for healthcare is also part of a trend to make services more accessible to care providers and end users through increased mobility and self-service.

Scope of Report
The report will segment the technology for IT suppliers by hardware, software and network, as well as for internal and external cloud deployment models by software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), and also by public, private and hybrid cloud platforms.

For healthcare applications, the report will segment the market by:
- Electronic health records (EHRs).
- Picture archiving and communications systems (PACS).
- Cardiology information systems (CIS).
- Laboratory information systems (LIS).
- Radiology information systems (RIS).
- Other (facility, hospital information systems).

Use segments will also be addressed, including healthcare providers, private and public payers, and cloud providers.
Key issues that will be discussed include the inclusion of consumer healthcare applications and medical devices in the cloud ecosystem, adoption of stronger security measures to prevent data breeches and future innovations such as edge cloud services that can better support mobile devices and video services for remote healthcare.

Information Sources
The primary information sources include manufacturers and suppliers of cloud computing technology used in healthcare, major users of these products, research organizations, governmental agencies and trade associations. Secondary research sources, including databases, trade literature, specialized journals and government statistics, were also researched while compiling this report.

Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in the preparation of this report. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature regarding printed electronics was conducted. These sources include relevant journals and related books, trade literature, marketing literature, other product and promotional literature, annual reports, analyst reports and other publications.

Subsequently, telephone interviews and e-mail correspondence were conducted with marketing executives, product sales engineers, international sales managers, application engineers and other personnel of printed electronics companies. Other sources included academics, related suppliers, technical experts and consulting companies.

Regional Breakdown The regions considered for market analysis include, and only include:
- North America.
- Latin America.
- Europe.
- Middle East and Africa.
- Asia-Pacific.
- Rest of World.
