The various types of cloud computing services for healthcare telcos can offer is discussed along with the potential barriers to adoption that telcos have to address.

"Telcos are well-positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for healthcare cloud services because they can offer the most comprehensive solutions, complementing cloud services with other ICT products such as medical monitoring or mobile health applications," says Pyramid Research Analyst, Dr. Ewa Romaniuk-Calkowska.

In addition, telcos can leverage their experience working with healthcare organizations and dealing with regulations and multiple compliance requirements. Pyramid Research believes that operators should tailor their cloud computing offers to the specific needs and requirements of their existing clients to quickly monetize the cloud opportunity. However, it is important to note that in the developed markets, healthcare organizations expect their service providers to deploy comprehensive and integrated systems that combine communication services for medical and administrative staff, she notes.
