The Connected Health Cloud: From Concept to Catalyst

Recently, a local organization and PACT member,  CloudMine, was cited as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Health Clouds, Q3 2017. The report was released on July 26, 2017 by Forrester Research, Inc., a leading global research and advisory firm, to help healthcare CIOs objectively evaluate enterprise health clouds.

Vendors were evaluated on 37 criteria, grouped into current offering, market presence, and strategy. Ten vendors were evaluated, each one providing: easy integration with major EHR providers; the ability for enterprises to develop a 360-degree view of their patients; advanced analytics capabilities, including patient analytics; SDK and API inclusion; data governance and access management; and HIPAA compliance in handling PHI. CloudMine was one of five vendors cited as a leader.

The vision of digital transformation of healthcare is expressed through many innovations, including major initiatives telemedicine, IoT/wearables integration, mobile-enabled clinical trials, and integrated disease management. With the emergence of policy mandates such as the 21st Century Act and MACRA, the motivation to accelerate this transformation is increasing. However, a significant gap exists in this evolution: a lack of interoperability poses a major barrier to achieving connected health. CloudMine, a venture-backed health cloud platform provider, is leading the way to a more agile, better connected healthcare experience.
