Cloud-First Computing Healthcare Model
As healthcare organizations manage an increasingly complex care landscape and challenging economic conditions, there is a growing desire to reduce the complexities of infrastructure management and control costs with a secure, scalable and agile public cloud solution. Azure offers opportunities for agility, cost management and risk reductions by offloading the data center and hardware management to Microsoft.
