This show will explore the question "What is the Cloud?" and the opportunities and potential pitfalls of widespread adoption within the healthcare industry, including privacy and security issues. The basic definition of the "Could" is often confusing because of the jargon related to the public cloud, private clouds, community clouds, etc.

The healthcare industry is moving to the Cloud in a big way and we applaud the move. Cloud economics will contribute to bending the healthcare cost curve. Although the Industry’s embrace of the Cloud is accelerating (and ambitions), historically healthcare has not rapidly adopted enabling technologies. This show will further explore healthcare's historically slow technology adoption rate and why this is not the case with respect to the Cloud.

With respect to privacy and security, the show will focus on the due diligence necessary when making the move to the Cloud.
