Background - In this technological age, there has been rapid advances in technology such as in cloud computing. There are benefit, opportunities, and value to be gained from cloud computing in the healthcare sector. However, there has also been introduction of new risk and challenges in these new cloud computing infrastructure and environment which may cause failure in the cloud computing project in the healthcare sector. Purpose - The purpose of this research is to construct a risk management model for cloud computing projects in healthcare that describes possible risks and their corresponding treatments and controls. Design/methodology/approach - This study adopts an epistemological inquiry that adopts a pragmatist approach with the research design being an exploratory sequential mixed-method design. The methods that are being used in this study is systematic literature review inclusive of technical report, constant comparison method, Delphi method augmented by semi-structured interview, and risk model simulation. Findings/Expected Contributions - From the literature review on technical reports and/or standards, 13 common risk classes have been found to be discussed and reported. These risk classes were discussed in one or more technical reports and/or standards. Academic papers from five databases were also found that discusses these risk classes and their related indicators. Research limitations - There has not been a lot of papers that specifically talks about risk management in cloud computing projects in healthcare. Originality/value - This study focuses on the risk management i.e., the decision-making aspect of cloud computing projects which is not extensively discussed in currently especially in the healthcare sector even though some of the risk that affect cloud computing projects affect this sector the most.
