"Remove all external access?"

What's so wrong with a lock-down of medical / hospital machines regardless of M$ Swiss cheese holes. In the age of cloud why can't a medical pc or app poll / send changes from / to the Cloud on port 80? Everything else remains dead and off-limits! Plus why can't this lock-down be proprietary too, so it isn't on some NSA zero-day hit-list that hackers acquire? Its a reasonable question to ask...
