Meditech pens Google pact to ‘bring EHRs to the public cloud’
Meditech is teaming up with Google to put patient data onto the cloud. It is one of the first vendors to offer an enterprise health record through the Google Cloud Platform, claiming that this is the future of healthcare. The public cloud allows facilities to expand security efforts and help combat ransomware attacks.
Google has been ramping up its life science base, penning cloud computing collaborations with Deloitte and signing a partnership with the Mayo Clinic that aims to transform the healthcare institution’s uses of patient data, artificial intelligence and cloud-computing services.
