Imagine that you are a healthcare manager for a hospital that is considering the use of cloud-based storage for patient data. You are responsible for making a recommendation for cloud-based storage. Evaluate the case studies and articles that explore the use of Big Data and Cloud-based storage:
- “Big Data Ethics” (Richards & King, Wake Forest Law Review)
- “Ethical Issues in the Big Data Industry” (Kirsten E. Martin, MIS Quarterly Executive)
- “The Cloud Evolution” (Stephen Katona, PM Network)
- “To Cloud or Not to Cloud” (Kumar Malavalli, SiliconIndia)
Then, in a 2-page summary:
- Discuss the concept of big data and managing information from health information systems.
- Discuss potential advantages and disadvantages of using cloud-based storage for big data.
- Describe the security and ethical standards of using internet-based storage and retrieval systems.
- Make a recommendation that your hospital use or not use cloud-based storage; explain your reasoning with supportive references.
