CIOs air their concerns about the cloud: 3 survey insights

With a growing number of healthcare CIOs turning to the cloud to host their EHR data, Datica, a cloud compliance management system builder, polled 175 of them about their cloud usage.

Here are three survey insights:

1. Sixty percent of respondents said cloud hosting is one of their organization's top 10 priorities, but only 30 percent said they have a strategy.

2. More than half (52.5 percent) of respondents said they are concerned about cloud security, and 44 percent of respondents said they would be OK evaluating vendors' security compliance.

3. Of the 34 percent of health technology professionals using the cloud to develop applications or manage protected health information, 70 percent said they are doing so for data analytics; 46.5 percent for population health; and 32.7 percent for machine learning.
