 For Customization of Report:

 The U.S. market dominated the North American Healthcare Cloud Computing market in the forecast period. The U.S. has been a pioneer in terms of developing and adopting the cloud technology. Even though EMR systems with a computerized provider order entry (CPOE) have existed for more than 30 years, till 2006, less than 10% of hospitals in the U.S. had a fully integrated system. With an aim to change this existing scenario, the Obama administration passed laws to provide the healthcare industry with $19 billion in subsidies over the next few years, to persuade doctors and hospitals to go digital. Big firms have already perceived this as an opportunity to venture into the cloud market. These federal measures are also likely to augment the adoption of cloud computing in rural areas, which will propel the growth of the cloud computing market in the U.S.
