Cloud computing in health care is poised for growth, but regulatory, privacy and security concerns have slowed public cloud adoption, according to a report by MarketsandMarkets.
Although regulatory and security concerns have held back the health care industry from widespread adoption of public clouds, the overall cloud computing market in health care will grow to $5.4 billion by 2017, according to a report by research firm MarketsandMarkets.
In the health care cloud market, no cloud provider holds more than a 5 percent share, according to the report. Health care cloud vendors include Agfa Healthcare, CareCloud, Dell, GE Healthcare and Merge Healthcare.
