 “The cloud can help the wider NHS as it moves to more integrated care; organisations that are combining functions may want to decommission or adapt services quickly. The cloud makes this change easier and more straightforward. Information sharing and collaboration can better be supported by using a single platform, rather than multiple different systems.”
