Abstract: Cloud computing is emerging technology and its usage in health sector is marvelous. It enhances the patient treatment process and allows the physicians to get remotely access to patient medical record anywhere and anytime. Numerous cloud based solution are working currently and offering facilities to people in rural area of developing countries. It is estimated by global healthcare that within few years of adoption of cloud in health sector will increase drastically whereas cloud based health services have opportunities and challenges as well. Privacy, security, interoperability and standards are the factors that influence cloud computing in e-health.
