Migrating Healthcare Applications to the Cloud through Containerization and Service Brokering

Francois Andry, Richard Ridolfo, John Huffman

Abstract

New business models and technologies offer unique opportunities of combining patient demographics and clinical data with general consumer data. We are building a digital health platform using a new paradigm based on an open platform as a service (PaaS) that delivers data and analytics across a wide variety of cloud computing topologies. This new architecture gives us the ability to integrate devices, data sources and services very quickly to create, refactor, migrate, deploy and maintain scalable, secure, high quality healthcare and wellness applications while reducing the total cost of ownership.
