Data Sovereignty & the Cloud - a Healthcare Perspective
Embracing the digital revolution holds out great promises for the healthcare sector and those who rely upon it, but healthcare organizations (HCOs) are also facing significant challenges to their transformation, including by so-called data sovereignty laws. These laws are varied, but they generally tend to dictate where and how data can be stored and processed, and thereby tend to restrict the vital free flow and aggregation of data that HCOs require. The HCOs that will come out ahead will be those that fully understand the developing issue and which formulate a risk-based, business-focused, and multi-jurisdictional regulatory strategy.
This white paper discusses the growing challenge of data sovereignty laws for the healthcare sector and details practical solutions to help the industry, and those that rely on them, to overcome the challenge these laws present.
