Microsoft to roll out Cloud for Healthcare, integrating Teams with EMRs

Microsoft will make its new Cloud for Healthcare platform generally available next month, its first industry-specific cloud offering that incorporates its Azure FHIR service and FHIR converter along with a new Azure IoT connector for FHIR and a medical imaging server for DICOM.

It will also feature expanded Microsoft Teams capabilities with a Microsoft Teams EHR connector that will allow clinicians and patients to launch Teams virtual visits from within electronic medical records, the first of which will be within Epic's patient and provider portals.

The above article regarding 'cloud for healthcare' sounds promising for future digital integration and patient care but there is a lot of acronyms which were not expanded which would have been helpful to allow for better understanding of what this platform entails. Is it possible to gain some more information on this please?
