Abstract: The advent of Cloud Computing has opened up newer avenues for business. Traditional industry verticals like the healthcare are yet to reap the benefits of such cutting-edge technology in India. In an age of collaboration over virtual medium, the lack of coordination and an effective communication mechanism is creating information “silos” that are not propagated at other levels. In this paper we briefly discuss the state of Health Information Management Systems (HIMS) in India, the challenges faced en-route deployment of the solution. We then introduce some interesting aspects of cloud computing to show that how a cloud-based system can help reduce the technical barriers to HIMS acceptance and endorsement. Our contribution lies in addressing issues for HIMS deployment in an Indian scenario and arguing for a cutting-edge technology like Cloud Computing as an agent of change.
