Cloud computing is a technology that provides facilities to the client to access shared resources, software, and information through Internet from servers on the cloud. It is very interesting to see the way cloud computing will put importance on the health care, since it is a very diverged application as well as complex and unique and presents several challenges such as protecting member health records in addition to the guidelines set based on federal compliance rules and regulations. It is also very important to see how cloud computing will address and contribute toward the issues in the healthcare industry and improve clinical and quality outcomes for patients. The advent of cloud computing technology provides effective and dependable results to support healthcare services. There is a discussion to customize architecture and for a prospective rule of the recent expertise in healthcare information system. Along with this, it represents the global confronts and technical difficulties for the recent technology. The purpose of this paper is to explore the current state and trends of cloud computing in health care.
