re: Patient Privacy Advocate Calls For Better Cloud Security
I don't believe these issues are specific to cloud technologies as a whole. Regardless of whether you have dedicated infrastructure or are using a cloud, you always have to have certain security measures in place. Sure, there may be a slightly larger risk when aggregating resources together, but at the end of the day all of that data should be secure so it shouldn't matter whether it's cloud hosted or not. Healthcare IT has it's work cut out for the next couple of years with trying to find solutions to the security concerns that plague it today.

Big challenge here still will be the small healthcare practices without the IT security resources and knowledge.

re: Patient Privacy Advocate Calls For Better Cloud Security
Wonderful article and a topic that I believe is getting overlooked, What I mean is people do not realize the risk of putting medical records in the cloud is security has to be standard and above and beyond 'normal' standards. Whatever policy that is written up also need sot consistent across the board or it will be useless for some organizations. I don't care if you are a small organization or massive, simple rule;encrypt your data, it is a very useful tool!
