Liked this piece by Rosemarie Nelson dealing with the potential for Physicians to deploy EHR solutions in the cloud.
When you think about it you would think it must make a lot of sense. A doctor running a busy practice does not want to be worrying about capacity planning, firewalls, patch management, backups, etc. Yet her/his EHR solution is critical to the practice.
Naturally there will be the usual concerns re security/ confidentiality of patient data. But why would a Physician be better at this that a specialist cloud operator?
Rosemarie Nelson, in the context of the US, provides some indicative pricing. And there are obvious attractions in the opex v. capex model for any Physician running a practice.
