The impact of cloud computing on medical devices

Cloud computing is a subscription-based infrastructure that delivers services such as storage, databases, software, and networking. The healthcare industry and in particular the medical devices sector has been relatively slow in adopting cloud computing technology.

However, the tide is turning and increased awareness of the benefits of such features as flexibility, back-up, and recovery capability in case of single point of failure, as well as remote access to services and information, has resulted in a spike in cloud uptake.
