Cloud-based EHRs are becoming more prevalent in the healthcare field, raising debate about how effective they are compared to other types of EHR solutions.

While there are positives and negatives regarding both cloud-based and in-house EHR adoption, cost savings, security considerations, and data sharing benefits are a few major checkmarks that are in favor of cloud-based EHRs.
Changing from an in-house EHR to a cloud-based EHR may be a natural step forward for health systems that not only want to modernize their EHR system, but also focus on interoperability.
