Recently, cloud computing (CC) has attracted the attention of many researchers and professionals as it provides a variety of solutions for different types of technical problems. One of these solutions is storage services. Cloud storage (CS) is expected to meet health industry expectations for maintaining health records and data. The importance of this focus in this research is that many healthcare providers face many challenges in managing their healthcare services in general and in controlling their costs more specifically. They are further challenged by adopting suitable novel technologies that could improve the quality of health services without increasing the cost, i.e., of storage services. CS service is one such technology that promises to store health records remotely allowing access to such records ubiquitously. This research reviews relevant literature about CC as a management solution for deploying health records and maintaining patients’ data. The suggested solution uses metadata to identify healthcare records in order to store and manage them. The research proposes an architecture that enables healthcare providers store and manage their data.
