The cloud imperative in healthcare

Two years ago, organizations were experimenting in the public cloud. Now their focus is on migrating legacy technology to the cloud and transforming data and applications using capabilities that aren’t available in their existing infrastructure solutions. Yesterday, cloud was about aspiration. Today, it is about scale.

Cloud is a disruptive force fueling innovation in the industry. Healthtech players with cloud solutions continue to grow as market influencers. In addition, the big three cloud hyperscalers in the North American market—Microsoft, Amazon and Google—have healthcare in their sights and are investing in innovation.

Leaders can make recent digital health gains last

The global pandemic greatly accelerated the adoption of digital healthcare—but will it persist? The Accenture 2020 digital health consumer research showed the rapid rise of digital health had stalled. Now, COVID-19 may serve to resume the growth.

With most in-person care visits on hold, use of virtual care services exploded during the crisis. Nearly overnight, digital healthcare was infused into the clinical workday as patients and providers alike were forced to become fast adopters.

As in-person care resumes, providers, payers and consumers can seize the opportunity to maintain the momentum created by forced adoption and address the pre-crisis issues that have previously inhibited digital health adoption.
