Cloud Computing Applications for Quality Health Care Delivery

Book Description

Software applications once held on local computers and servers are beginning to shift to the public Internet sphere, and private health information is no exception. The likelihood of placing once restricted and private health records “in the cloud” is increasing. Cloud Computing Applications for Quality Health Care Delivery focuses on cloud technologies that could affect quality in the healthcare field. Leading experts in this area offer their knowledge and contribute to the demystification of healthcare in the Cloud. This publication will prove to be a useful tool for undergraduate and graduate students of healthcare quality and management, healthcare managers, and industry professionals.
