Officials said during Build that the Microsoft Industry Cloud solutions will integrate the Microsoft Cloud (Azure, Microsoft 365/Office 365, Dynamics 365) with "an industry-specific data model, cross-cloud connectors, workflows and APIs to provide industry solutions aligned to priority scenarios."

To create the Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, Microsoft is building on top of and extending Dynamics 365 Marketing, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, the Power Platform tools, and Azure IoT.

The Cloud for Healthcare is going to be one of several "Microsoft Industry Clouds" that are designed for data analysis, collaboration, and operations for some of the company's key vertical markets.
