Abstract: Cloud Computing is no more considered as an emerging technology. Now, its a reality and this low cost computing power is gaining popularity amongst businessmen, especially medium and small size public organizations. Cloud computing is set of resources and services offered through the Internet. The paper proposes a new cloud computing solution to provide ease to access patients medical information for hospitals. The main idea of proposing cloud based solution is to reduce the cost of construction and maintenance in healthcare, to reduce data loss risk, however the solution is generic and can be used by government hospitals and community based hospitals. The paper states the idea of using the cloud for storage of patients medical information. Further the link set up between the (Government) Public Health Centre and hospitals which makes it comfortable and provides ease to patients from rural areas to get the medical facilities from the Hospitals appropriately which will be done using IIS (Internet information system) feature of windows OS which will host the website on Local Area Network. Using Microsoft SQL server database with necessary information of the patient will be available to the hospital profile so that accurate measures will be taken. This becomes easy for hospitals to maintain information according to various Gram panchayats. Public Health Centre updates patients information on the cloud and which is accessed easily by the hospitals. So it benefits in saving time of patients from rural areas in transportation. As medical details will be uploaded on the cloud so patients details are easily available, so no need to diagnose his basic details again and again thus saving on expenditure. This idea will also facilitate hospital services like having doctors and required staff for proper functioning of the setup.
