More hospitals are turning to cloud-based services to store their data. They want to tap into the existing infrastructure and convenience, not to mention reduced costs and lesser maintenance hassles that come with this transition.
That’s not all. The data that is stored on the cloud can be analyzed quickly to get meaningful insights.
