Today, AWS HealthOmics announces a new capability to easily archive and retain workflow runs to support your data provenance requirements. In regulated environments, the need to keep long term records of which algorithms you ran on specific input data to produce specific output data is a key component for compliance. The new AWS HealthOmics capability enables you to track your workflow history in Amazon CloudWatch Logs, and use CloudWatch Insights to query this history. You can also export this data to S3 from CloudWatch for even longer term storage to meet your compliance requirements.

AWS HealthOmics is a fully managed service that helps healthcare and life science organizations build at-scale to store, query, and analyze genomic, transcriptomic, and other omics data. By removing the undifferentiated heavy lifting, customers can generate deeper insights from omics data to improve health and advance scientific discoveries. 

Workflow run archive and retention is available in all AWS Regions where AWS HealthOmics is generally available: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London), and Asia Pacific (Singapore).
