Major Growth Driving Factors:
The growth of the healthcare cloud computing market is mainly driven by factors such as the growing adoption of EHR, e-prescribing, telehealth, mHealth, and other healthcare IT solutions due to COVID-19; the increasing adoption of big data analytics, wearable devices, and IoT; increasing cloud deployment in the healthcare industry; better storage, flexibility, and scalability of data offered by cloud computing; the proliferation of new payment models and cost-efficiency of the cloud; and the dynamic nature of health benefit plan designs.
On the other hand, data & security concerns and complex regulations governing cloud data centers are factors expected to restrain the market growth to a certain extent.
Opportunities: Emergence of telecloud and telehealth consultations
The convergence of wireless technology and the cloud is proving to be a very strong mechanism for patient care delivery to remote locations. In several countries, most physicians and specialists work in metros and cities. Hence, advanced care facilities are only available in such places, leaving patients in rural areas unattended. This problem can be addressed through the use of a telecloud, as it enables physicians and healthcare specialists to diagnose and treat patients over large distances in real-time and at affordable costs.

Clinicians have been focusing on remote monitoring of affected patients due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the contagiousness of the disease. Physical assistance is taking a toll as there are increasing cases of doctors getting infected with the pandemic despite proper protection and care. The Italian Doctors Association stated that in March 2020, at least 50 doctors lost their lives treating COVID-19. It is, therefore, essential to minimize physical assistance and encourage telehealth. Thus, telehealth that includes remote monitoring of patients and the use of interactive medicines is expected to gain traction in the coming years.
