      • Slides

      Purpose/Objectives: This oral presentation will provide a synopsis of the most recent work of Canada Health Infoway in assessing the approaches taken to the use of Cloud Computing in Healthcare across Canada.

      Methodology/Approach: In 2016-17 Canada Health Infoway has embarked on a significant update to its original white paper on Cloud Computing in Healthcare. The new white-paper looks at illustrative uses of Cloud that have been deployed across the country through interviews and informal surveys. It examines the public sector business drivers for use of Cloud and the approaches taken. It also explores vendor perspectives on working with the health sector in Canada. Early benefits from Cloud implementations are identified and evaluated for applicability, extensibility, and scalability across Canada.

      Finding/Results: The white paper is still in development and is expected to be published in March of 2017. Findings and results will be available at that time.

      Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: The white-paper and oral presentation will provide insights into the challenges faced by implementers and users of Cloud-based solutions as well as the benefits and positive impacts and outcomes that have been achieved.

      140 Character Summary: A presentation on the findings of an Infoway white paper on the application of Cloud Computing in the Health sector in Canada.
