So it’s no surprise that major technology companies are keeping an eye on healthcare cloud computing.
Recently, Dell Technologies released an enterprise survey report, which says that healthcare is becoming increasingly welcoming to cloud computing for best practice support, which also leads to digital enterprise business transformation advancing. The report was released by the tech giant at the Dell Technologies World 2018 event held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cutts says that many healthcare organisations are now prioritizing cloud computing for their IT initiatives. He says that Virtustream responded with their new Virtustream Healthcare Cloud, which he says is compliant with HIPAA and HITECH and grants security, safety and efficiency when dealing with patient health information.
