Cloud computing is rapidly advancing healthcare on three important fronts. Mathew Soltis, GDIT’s Vice President of Cloud Solutions, expands on cloud adoption in health agencies in this interview during Federal News Network’s Cloud Exchange.

First, Soltis says, the cloud is affecting medical research by enabling aggregation and sharing of data in a given research domain, which speeds visualization and data analysis, and therefore, the development of remedies.

Second, the cloud is making it easier for agencies to comply with privacy and security requirements in the health domain.

And third, the cloud is enabling new modes of remote health care delivery and improving outcomes.

Soltis points to the importance of having a Chief Data Officer who owns, manages, charters, chaperones and governs the data, noting that when the CDO “sits at the same level as technology and the mission owner and the application owner, that provides the best outcome.”
