Abstract—Cloud computing has matured and has been widely applied. Managers of medical organizations have noted cloud computing features–computational power, storage capacity, high stability, and flexible design—and have begun to assess the possibility of introducing cloud computing into medical information systems. This study simulated and estimated the costs of introducing cloud computing into medical information systems; the simulation results were compared with the estimated costs of self-maintaining medical information systems to explore the feasibility of introducing cloud computing into medical information systems. This study used mathematical functions to construct two models under the conditions of regular occurrence of damage to information appliances and irregular occurrence of damage to information appliances. Functions of the models were derived and solved; the derived optimal values can serve as references for decision makers.

Index Terms—Cloud computing, medical information systems, mathematical functions.
