The term “cloud computing” is heard by almost everyone in some context or the other. It is a technology that was born in the last decade and has already taken its place in the current business world. Cloud is a new way of providing access to the computing resources over the web which is based on the “pay as you go” model. Because of the characteristics of cloud like on-demand, “metered service”, elasticity and cost efficiency, organizations have already started moving their services to cloud. Interestingly, cloud computing is most widely used by the organizations whose implications can have greater effect on the society. Education and social media are some domains which marks the presence of cloud computing. But recently, cloud computing has attracted the organizations in the healthcare domain.
