Healthcare organizations want out of the data center business in order to focus their attention on innovative uses of clinical and non-clinical information. The costs of maintaining hardware and software requires skilled personnel and repeated capital expenditures to keep up with the data demands of increasingly complex healthcare environments. The cloud provides a means for reducing the IT footprint within a given health system, hospital, or physician practice while at the same time opening the door to delivering data and applications to end users more efficiently and effectively. 

At John Muir Health System in northern California, VP of IT Operations & ACIO Bill Hudson has overseen the organization’s multiyear move into the healthcare cloud to help reduce the health system’s legacy hardware and software. In this presentation, Hudson will detail the organization’s approach to data center transformation using the cloud.

Learning objectives:
  • Identifying business cases for healthcare cloud computing
  • Choosing appropriate cloud service models
  • Negotiating cloud service agreements
  • Implementing and managing a healthcare cloud environment
