Abstract

Cloud Computing is rapidly changing, or at least reorganizing, the IT domain. Several sectors are already benefitting from this change, others are slower in the adoption. Healthcare sector, and eHealth in particular, could take important advantage from Cloud Computing, but there are limitations that still need to be overcome for a proper adoption. This paper explores the main drivers that could lead eHealth toward Clouds and the main risks and recommendations that should be taken into account.
