Introducing AWS for Health – Accelerating innovation from benchtop to bedside

July 20, 2021

To help customers accelerate their transformation, Amazon is introducing AWS for Health, an offering of curated AWS services and AWS Partner Network solutions used by thousands of healthcare and life sciences customers globally.  

AWS for Health is intended to provide proven and easily accessible capabilities that may help organizations increase the pace of innovation, unlock the potential of health data, and develop more personalized approaches to therapeutic development and care. The solution simplifies the process for healthcare and life science enterprises and startups to identify industry-leading, cloud-based solutions across 16 critical solution areas in Healthcare, Genomics, and Biopharma. For example, solutions offered in AWS for Health are helping customers create holistic Electronic Health Records to help clinicians make data-driven care plans, accelerate research and discovery to bring new therapies to market faster, and power population genomic initiatives to expand precision medicine accessibility. 

Healthcare and life science organizations are moving towards digital transformation to decrease the cost of care, improve collaboration, make data-driven clinical and operational decisions, and enable faster development of new therapeutics and treatment paths. Identifying the right cloud technology to reach these goals can be challenging, and many organizations lack the internal resourcing and expertise to assess, build, and deploy their own solutions. As a highly regulated and complex industry, various global compliance requirements can further complicate healthcare and life science organizations’ moves to implement digital initiatives. 

AWS for Health centralizes and simplifies how Healthcare and Life Science customers identify the right solution to address their business challenges. When accessing AWS for Health, customers discover a unified view across AWS services, solutions, AWS Partner solutions, and customer success stories. Customers can navigate to their industry and associated solution areas, and find curated solution offerings and various implementation options, such as accessing via AWS Marketplace, directly from AWS Partners, or through the health-focused AWS Professional Services team. Simplified access to solutions and health industry experts helps customers quickly achieve business outcomes across common healthcare and life science workloads, from benchtop research to using data for bedside clinical decision support — supporting use cases like Rush University Medical Center, which uses AWS for health data interoperability, decreasing costs, generating operational insights, and collaborating with data to positively impact patient care. 

For over a decade, the dedicated AWS team of healthcare professionals and industry experts have collaborated with health organizations to design and deploy solutions with a unified goal in-mind: improving patient outcomes.
