Developing countries different sectors especially healthcare suffers from redundancy, lack of communication, lack of information, lack of resources, lack of sharing and lack of supervision as well as diagnosis errors. Cloud computing may offer great opportunities for the developing countries to modernize the healthcare sector and hence overcome the problems it suffers. Adoption of the cloud computing poses different challenges and obstacles which may complicate the actual implementation. This study aims at investigating the success factors for deploying cloud computing within the eHealth sector in developing countries and consequently the study employed the case of Egypt as a developing country. This research tested the critical factors quantitatively which was embedded within critical success factors models adopted from the literature within the context of cloud computing implementation. The model includes all the critical success factors and the effect of demographics on the factors for a successful implementation of cloud computing in the healthcare industry.
