Cloud in Healthcare – Thought leadership from Canada Health Infoway

Very exciting news for the Canadian Cloud industry.

Infoway is the primary organization in Canada for setting Healthcare standards such as for EHR (Electronic Healthcare Record), and they have recently published their first strategy documents for Cloud Computing:

Transform – Issue 2

These publications provide a very helpful support for growing the industry, as they provide a focus point to organize supplier development.

In our case we will act by having issue 2 of our new e-magazine TRANSFORM act as an industry response to the paper, providing a special feature on EHealth Cloud Computing, covering topics such as:

  • Personal Clouds – The evolution of distributed personal data systems.
  • Open Standards – How organizations like OASIS offer a suite of standards for Cloud interoperation
  • Cloud SOA – How these standards can underpin integration models like ‘Cloud SOA’
  • Open Data – The use of Open Data in Healthcare

If you have ideas for inclusion into this edition, contact us or join in the discussions in our Linkedin group.
