Cloud gets high marks on security

March 12, 2013 in Medical Technology

With an average satisfaction score of 4.5 out of 5 on security, cloud users feel safe. Non-cloud users though remain at bay-particularly with many questions still looming around the future of cloud computing in healthcare. The conclusions are from a recent report from research firm KLAS.

Cloud Computing Perception 2013: The Hybrid Cloud in Healthcare looks at the evolution of the cloud in healthcare, provider concerns, as well as vendor performance.

While cloud users gave their vendors near-perfect satisfaction scores, 66 percent of non-users surveyed said security was the top concern stopping them from moving forward with adoption.

“The contrast in this report between cloud users and non-users is really telling,” said Erik Westerlind, research director and report author. “It really helps providers and vendors get a sense of the gaps that exist within current cloud offerings. Furthermore, providers will understand which vendors might be able to resolve their concerns.”

The rated vendors in this report are Allscripts, Cerner.
