Amazon Web Services Big In Healthcare Data

By on April 6, 2015

ClearDATA announced the launch of its Healthcare Managed Cloud that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The new offering enables healthcare organizations to leverage the affordability and convenience of AWS’ highly secure framework to safeguard patient health information.

The ClearDATA Healthcare Managed Cloud can now provide one of the most flexible and comprehensive cloud data management environments available for “Big Health Data” analytics. The announcement coincides with the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition to be held April 12-16 in Chicago, IL.

“We are excited to combine our healthcare-exclusive approach to information security, compliance and managed services with the scale and diversity of AWS,” stated Matt Ferrari, Chief Technology Officer, ClearDATA. “This combination makes it easier for healthcare organizations to securely move their data to the cloud using a service that fuses ClearDATA’s deep knowledge of healthcare requirements with AWS’ cloud infrastructure in a variety of important healthcare use cases.”

“The digital revolution is in full swing with healthcare organizations adopting cloud computing to create tangible impacts on patient lives, saving time, simplifying processes, enabling faster access to data, and enabling global collaboration in completely new ways,” said Steve Halliwell, GM, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are pleased ClearDATA is introducing its new Healthcare Managed Cloud offering on AWS to aid healthcare organizations eager to harness the cost and agility benefits of cloud computing without compromising on data security.”

Meaningful Use, Advanced Imaging and EHRs are driving massive growth in data volume, which brings new challenges and opportunities for healthcare analytics applications to generate meaningful insights. Many organizations are finding it difficult to house these analytics solutions within a traditional IT infrastructure, which requires considerable capital outlay in servers and other equipment, plus continuous security and performance monitoring.

With the ClearDATA Healthcare Managed Cloud, organizations can cost-effectively store, manage and securely share their data from a single location. This offers unprecedented benefits for solving Big Health Data challenges:

 

  • Protected health information resides in a HIPAA-compliant, HITRUST-certified environment on the AWS Cloud
  • New capability to store and analyze large datasets to glean meaningful insights into patient care, population health and healthcare administration
  • Centralize, normalize and analyze data within the same location it is managed and stored

ClearDATA will leverage the advanced features of AWS’ infrastructure, including multi-Region failovers, log analysis, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions and a dedicated DevOps practice. ClearDATA has committed a dedicated engineering team to focus on adapting the latest and greatest cloud technologies for the healthcare market.

ClearDATA will exhibit at the HIMSS15 show at booth #5334. Company representatives will be available to demo Object Storage and Archival for secure long-term storage of critical data. Visitors may qualify for a free 90-day proof of concept to evaluate whether the ClearDATA Healthcare Managed Cloud built on AWS can help remove the barriers to affordable and efficient healthcare IT management.
