New features announced by Microsoft contribute to the growing healthcare cloud computing industry
Last week, Microsoft announced a set of new features for its healthcare cloud computing provider, Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, at its annual Microsoft Ignite conference. Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare uses Microsoft Cloud applications such as Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft 365 to improve the healthcare journey for both patients and healthcare providers.
The goals of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare are focused on increasing patient engagement, empowering healthcare team collaboration, improving clinical and operational insights, and improving data management. Some of its new features include an AI-driven missed appointment predictor, patient journey templates to better analyze patient trends, and a new Dataverse Healthcare API feature to better share clinical data.
Cloud computing is the future of healthcare data management, and healthcare Cloud computing improves the provider/patient relationship by fostering trust and transparency. With healthcare cloud services, doctors can share lab reports, electronic health records and prescriptions in real time with patients and other members of the healthcare team. This, in turn, increases patient involvement and empowers healthcare team collaboration. GlobalData forecasts that global spending on cloud services will reach $429.4 billion by the end of 2024.
While healthcare cloud computing offers several promises, an understandable concern for patients and healthcare professionals is the potential for data breaches. Patient data is one of the most sensitive and personal types of information, so it is important that healthcare professionals take the necessary measures to ensure the security of their patients’ data.
Annual Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare enhancement releases contribute to the development of Cloud Healthcare technology. There is no doubt that cloud computing has transformed the healthcare industry.
