Wipro research reveals cloud adoption is helping drive higher levels of patient care 

Wipro, a leading technology services and consulting company, has announced the launch of The Prescription for Healthcare Provider Cloud Success, a report published by Wipro FullStride Cloud Services. The report indicates that since the start of the pandemic, healthcare providers have been leveraging the cloud to improve IT systems, clinical documentation, patient engagement and clinical decision support, driving faster growth and better efficiencies.  

This accelerated pace of cloud adoption has helped the industry’s cloud leaders (mature adopters) realise an average revenue gain of 6.6% from their cloud investments and an annualised return on investment (ROI) of 54%.  

What healthcare cloud leaders get right: 

  • More than a third of healthcare providers that are leading in cloud adoption have adopted cloud-based data centres – far exceeding the industry average of 10%.  
  • More than seven out of 10 cloud leaders are pairing their cloud platforms with advanced technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). 
  • Leaders that have transitioned to hybrid cloud environments are leading the way by developing cloud-native applications, as well as modernising and migrating core processes to the cloud. 
  • Nearly all cloud leaders (91%) expect their cloud capabilities to be largely centralised within the next two years. 
  • Over half of cloud leaders (64%) have realised cybersecurity cost savings by migrating to the cloud. 

The report builds out six tactics that offer a roadmap for healthcare providers to emulate, as a means of improving their own cloud practices. 

“Technology-led innovation, powered by a specialised full-stack of cloud infrastructure, is helping tackle some of the most significant challenges within healthcare,” said Mohd Haque, Senior Vice President and Sector Head, Healthcare and Medical Devices, Wipro. “Cloud innovation spans the entire healthcare value chain and builds new ways of patient engagement. It unleashes technologies such as AI that aid health experts as they improve patient outcomes. It augments physician insights, embeds intelligence into devices, addresses healthcare disparities and connects patients, payers and providers.”
