Microsoft to adapt its cloud software for healthcare industry

Microsoft's Cloud for Healthcare is an elaborate suite of telehealth tools

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella discusses third-party apps in Microsoft Teams during the keynote for the company's Build developer conference Tuesday morning. But we have never thought the changes will become so significant.

While Microsoft is known for general productivity software such as Outlook and the chat app Teams, it also makes more specialized business software such as programs used by customer service agents and artificial intelligence tools that software developers can use to make chat bots.

In July, Providence St. Joseph Health said it reached a data-storage agreement with Microsoft, and that same month electronic health records (EHRs) company Cerner named AWS its preferred cloud, artificial intelligence and machine learning provider.

Supercomputers are rated for speed twice a year by researchers in the Top500 project, which rates machines based on how quickly they perform a mathematical computation test called Linpack.

It's an outgrowth of a partnership previous year between the computing giant and OpenAI, a startup co-founded by Elon Musk which Microsoft has supported with more than $1 billion.

Meghan and Harry's secret wedding anniversary celebrations detailed by insider
It is reported the couple spotted drones over the mansion, which is owned by their pal Tyler Perry , on May 9, 19, 20, 21 and 25. A friend told the Daily Beast: "They were out driving in the last month in Los Angeles and were noticed by paparazzi".

If this beast is in the top five, that would mean - judging from the latest list of the world's most powerful publicly known supercomputers - it is somewhere between the 450,000-core 38-PFLOPS Frontera system at the University of Texas, and Uncle Sam's 2.4-million-core 200-PFLOPS Summit. "We're building better computers, better distributed systems, better networks, better datacenters".

"We want to carry all that information through the health experience", Deb Cupp, Microsoft's corporate vice president of enterprise and commercial industries, told Reuters in an interview.

At Build, Microsoft also introduced Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, the company's first industry-specific cloud offering, which brings together capabilities for customers and partners to enrich patient engagement, connect caregiving teams, and improve collaboration, decision-making and operational efficiencies.

Every time Microsoft creates something, we think it will change the world like Windows 95.

"The exciting thing about these models is the breadth of things they are going to allow", said Microsoft Technical Director Kevin Scott in a company blog post on the news.
