Cloud Technology brought in sync the disruptive technologies like ICT (Information and Communication Technology), IoT (Internet of Things), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data Science and Blockchain supplements the research processes with EHRs (Electronic Health Records).

We are seeing the role of cloud medicine for transforming the healthcare, stated Ashutosh Tiwari, Managing Director and Chairman, Vinoba Bhave Research Institute (VBRI). The dominance of telemedicine, mHealth, EHRs, and home healthcare has certainly paved the path for precision medicine. But it is Cloud Technology which has made it possible for medical practitioners and scientists globally to leverage big data and develop exact medicine protocols, he added.

The response of a patient’s body to prescribe medicine depends on genomics. Therefore, this isn’t necessary that two people with the same disease can be treated with the same drug. ICT and IOT made it possible for scientists and doctors to collate the complete patient medical history and derive precision medicine for accurate treatment.

Considering the requirements of sequencing technology, genomics, transcriptomics, and epigenomics to consume large data from around the world to derive precision medicine, Cloud technology has been leveraged to gather the required info and channelize the same through AI-based AutoML (Automatic Machine Learning) systems for accurate medical analysis. It is because of the cloud-based systems that healthcare industry succeeded in transforming the data facilitation and engagement for precision medicine. Today, as a result of these tech disruptions the healthcare industry is evolving exponentially and working to meet the quality healthcare goals of ‘Agenda: 2030’ by the UN.

Targeted therapy and focused treatment for oncology, CNS, and other NCDs require real-time processing of large data of patient records. The recent advancements have increased the efficiency and delivery-duration of cloud systems. Engaging therapeutic processes with precision medicine derived with cloud help oncology care professionals to deliver optimal results and better treatment for the patients.

Although the medical science liaison is continually evolving the method and content of communication between the scientists and researchers yet the core strength is provided by a robust and strong cloud network. While Cloud-based technologies deliver precision information and extended scientific communication network for value-based results, EHRs and Blockchain are facilitating tools for medical practitioners to collect, collate and comprehend medical data with help of cloud networks, noted Dr. Tiwari.

Moreover, accelerated innovations in the cloud have enabled bidirectional information sharing between life sciences companies, healthcare ITs, and medical care units. Cloud helps companies to deliver targeted information and share real-world experiences. It is also a platform for diagnostic and researchers to share information and extends education to drive better patient care.

Big Data analytics and insights sharing have become possible with help of the effective cloud-based network. With AI driving the future of scientific analysis, cloud systems will act as the interface for faster alignment of treatments through precision medicine, he said.
