Cloud Providers Look to Further Serve the Healthcare Vertical

In this episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast, host Daniel Newman and Senior Analyst and Research Director Sarah Wallace examined the emerging cloud for healthcare market, the impact COVID-19 has had on cloud providers, risks during implementation and transformation, and the need for a security-first environment.


In their discussion, Daniel and Sarah explored the many advancements that have been made in the last few months as well as what’s to come. They discussed:



  • Google Cloud and AWS’ expansion into the healthcare vertical with partners such as the Mayo Clinic and Cerner, an electronic health records (EHRs) provider.


  • Big Tech’s involvement in COVID-19 efforts, including Microsoft Azure’s partnership with the State of Washington and hospital systems, to collection data in order to predict disease incidents as well as monitor hospital resources in real-time.


  • AWS teamed up with non-profit insurer MetroPlus, Bain & Co., and the nonprofit AirNYC to help build and launch a chatbot for use in contacting at risk members in order to better serve them.


  • Google Cloud’s efforts in beefing up healthcare leadership, as well as focusing its COVID-19 response by providing communities with technology to help fight the virus outside of the hospital.


Sarah also shared the importance of cloud providers’ computing capability and scale in supporting these efforts during the pandemic and beyond and touched on the continued importance of security and patient privacy issues.
