With an average satisfaction score of 4.5 out of 5 on security, cloud users feel safe. Non-cloud users though remain at bay, particularly with many questions still looming around the future of cloud computing in health care.

Given the near-perfect satisfaction scores that cloud-users gave to their vendors, 66% of non-users surveyed said security was definitely the main issue stopping them from moving forward with adoption.

“The contrast in this report between cloud users and non-users is really telling,” said Erik Westerlind, research director and report author. “It really helps providers and vendors get a sense of the gaps that exist within current cloud offerings.”
