e-Prescription Use Drives Cloud Computing in Healthcare: Kalorama Report
Date:10/29/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Filling prescriptions electronically is one of the demands of IT systems in healthcare and that is fueling cloud computing system purchases, according to a report from Kalorama Information. The global market for cloud computing in healthcare is estimated to reach $3.9 billion for 2013, representing 21.1% growth over the 2012 year, and that storage demands from e-prescribing will create sales opportunities for cloud providers. The finding was made in Kalorama's latest report, “The World Market for Cloud Computing in Healthcare.”

An e-prescriptions is sent to pharmacies electronically instead of by fax. Re-fill requests are sent to health provider electronically from the pharmacy resulting in faster prescription management.    Kalorama notes that the use of e-prescribing technologies has jumped from less than 10% in 2004 to about 35% in 2010. The healthcare market research firm says that hospitals, physician offices and retail pharmacies will adopt cloud computing systems, off-site servers that can store information accessible to healthcare organization employees at a different location.

“e-Prescribing creates a variety of storage responsibilities for both the physician and the pharmacy, leading to demand for server space,” said Bruce Carlson, Publisher of Kalorama Information. “In healthcare, space is often limited and the last thing organizations want is a bulky server.”

The use of e-prescription by physicians is expected to experience a significant amount over the next few years with the growing regulatory requirements and disincentives to use paper patient records.    And according to Kalorama, it’s not just the storage space needed. Service and staff requirements are another reason. Technical staff members can be hard to recruit and retain for healthcare organizations, and a 24 hour operation can’t stop while a service call is scheduled.

“A hospital doesn’t want the server crash to be their concern, especially when they are serving patients at all hours,” Carlson said.

Billing concerns also dominate, according to the report, e-prescribing creates a patient record, a pharmacy record and important billing records that the organization will need to keep working at all times to be successful.
