District health boards in New Zealand leveraging cloud for clinical and non-clinical data

17 of New Zealand’s district health boards (DHBs) are hosting some of their clinical and non-clinical data offsite using cloud services.

The author asked all 20 DHBs what cloud services they are currently leveraging, their future plans and the barriers they see to cloud adoption.
All but three (South Canterbury, Lakes and Tairāwhiti DHBs) are using or piloting cloud services already and all are considering or have definite plans to expand their use of cloud.
