Healthcare Goes Automated with Cloud Technology

The use of Cloud Computing technology allows the different players in this industry to store and consult information on a large scale, thus optimizing patient care, reducing costs and strengthening their response capacity, among other benefits.

The health industry was not immune to the call of the World Summit on the Information Society (Geneva 2003 and Tunis 2005) to “exploit the potential of ICT as drivers of development” and the introduction of mechanisms such as electronic medical records. , among others, allowed it to take, in recent times, a firm step towards digital transformation.

Industry 4.0 tools became strategic for patient care

This last year, in which the pandemic, caused by Covid 19, affected, for example, the functioning of services for non-communicable diseases in the Americas, according to the Pan American Health Organization and the World Health Organization, PAHO. /OMS2, Industry 4.0 tools became strategic for patient care.

Telemedicine replaces in-person presence in a certain way

According to the study carried out by the aforementioned organizations, in many countries, telemedicine was used to replace in-person presence for users, and according to a publication by the consulting firm KPMG, “the digital door”, turned out to be one of the main lessons, to be faced with better tools. these types of conjunctural times.

In this line, the management of information, a dynamic that in this industry involves patient care, the production of data from various areas, and the interaction with other institutions providing health services, government, and control organizations, among other actions, need to be optimized and this is achieved only through the use of cloud technology.

According to Leonardo Suárez, CEO of Clouxter, “Health systems are living a defining moment for the future of humanity and the success or failure of the mission of providing timely and effective care to millions of people in the world depends on the use of cloud technologies. The technology market offers solutions to help health sector institutions on key issues.”

Its use generates benefits for the industry such as providing a complete view of health following standards, the structuring and normalization of information, the possibility of using electronic analysis tools, and generating machine learning.

This dynamic ultimately generates cost savings, the improvement of user care, and the strengthening of the response capacity of institutions, especially in the current health crisis, which global health authorities foresee.
