HIMSS12 Interview: Maturing Cloud Services with Dr. Roger Eng

Dr. Roger Eng, Chairman of Radiology, Chinese Hospital, and President of Golden Gate Radiology Medical Group, stopped by our booth last week at HIMSS to talk about healthcare’s  growing interest in cloud services, his experience using CARESTREAM Vue Cloud Archive for disaster recovery to complement his RIS/PACS system and the progress vendors have made addressing security cloud security concerns.

Watch his video interview below to hear about how his department’s location in a major earthquake center drove the decision to store the entire  data portfolio — going back to 2006 (approximately 40,000 imaging procedures per year) — in the cloud as a storage back up.

How do you see the healthcare cloud services industry developing and what are your facility’s plans?

  1. Cloud computing promises enormous benefits for healthcare community. These could include improved patient care, improved accessibility to information, and new delivery models that will make healthcare more efficient and effective. And cloud computing can help do all of this in a cost-effective way. As with any new technology or service, there are risks and concerns to go along with the potential benefits. Great interview – HIMSS had a great record breaking showing this year!
