Today, Amazon HealthLake is excited to announce three new capabilities that simplify health data interoperability for customers using Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR). Launching in preview, Amazon HealthLake now supports SMART on FHIR, patient access APIs, and FHIR bulk data access. SMART on FHIR authorizes users and applications to securely access FHIR data, patient access APIs power patient and provider facing applications, and FHIR Bulk Data Access APIs enable the secure exchange of health data. These new capabilities, combined with existing Amazon Healthlake APIs, help EHRs, ISVs, and SIs enabling healthcare organizations to rapidly build applications that conform to patient access rules from ONC and CMS.

Amazon HealthLake is a fully managed HIPAA-eligible service which allows healthcare and life sciences organizations to securely store, transform, transact, and analyze health data. Customers can normalize and store health data from disparate raw data sources into a FHIR data store and leverage HealthLake FHIR-based APIs to build interactive applications and interoperability workflows. Customers can also leverage the HealthLake Analytics module to transform FHIR data into an analytics-ready format. HealthLake data stores easily integrate with AWS Analytics tools such as Athena for SQL queries, QuickSight for visualization, and SageMaker for training and drawing inferences from ML models.

These new capabilities are available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai). Visit the AWS Region Table to see all the regions.
