    Abstract

    The healthcare industry is facing several challenges and significant pressure to decrease the costs associated with providing healthcare services, adopt new electronic healthcare systems, and communicate data quickly and securely with other healthcare and government agencies. Recently, the healthcare industry started perceiving cloud computing as a solution for its elasticity, scalability and universal access to the medical data anywhere and anytime needs. This paper illustrates the concept of electronic healthcare (e-Health), highlights the technical and non-technical issues of migrating to cloud computing solutions. Furthermore, the paper illustrates different solutions of cloud-based e-Health implementations to compare these efforts with the current issues.
