Cloud to enable ‘quantum leaps’ in healthcare

28 Sep 2020

Loud technology is giving health care innovators an opportunity to deliver the same level of personalised interactive service that people have grown to expect from every other industry. This emerged during an AWS webinar on service delivery in the health sector, hosted in partnership with ITWeb this week.

As a follow up to an AWS survey and webinar that examined the cloud landscape in Africa and investment in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) region, the AWS Healthcare Webinar explored how progress towards achieving South Africa’s national health goals could be enhanced by cloud technologies.

Panellists in the webinar believed that cloud adoption was progressing well in the local healthcare sector, and that there’s evidence of innovation in the way health services are being delivered.
