Find out how these 7 health system CIOs are approaching cloud spending amid economic pressures
Scott Arnold. Executive Vice President and CIO of Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital says that they are making seismic transitions away from on-premise equipment to cloud environments and don’t view cloud service as a “nice to have” or unnecessary expense.
James Wellman. Chief Digital and Information Officer of Blanchard Valley Health System (Findlay, Ohio) says that, While there may be some immediate expenses associated with expanding their use of cloud-based technologies, they believe they will be more than outweighed by the benefits they will get in the long run.
Mike Angelakos, DrPH, Associate CIO of Geisinger (Danville, Pa.) says that they’re very strategically moving to the cloud and heavily investing in it.
Saad Chaudhry. CIO of Luminis Health (Annapolis, Md.) says that he has established price thresholds for cloud hosting on a per-system basis at which moving to the cloud becomes financially viable.
Mark Fred, RN, MSN. COO and CIO of Kirby Medical Center (Monticello, Ill.) says even with narrowing profit margins, cloud hosting remains a preferable choice for them because of its reduced upfront cost, increased security, and availability of more resources on demand.
Christian Lindmark. Chief Technology Officer of Stanford Health Care (Palo Alto, Calif.) says they have discovered that native cloud deployments are most beneficial for internal software development and disaster recovery scenarios.
