AWS Healthcare Customers Announce New Generative AI-Powered Solutions at HIMSS 2024

Aligned with the HIMSS 2024 theme of “creating tomorrow’s health,” AWS for Healthcare and Life Sciences teams are on the ground with our customers and partners highlighting how the cloud helps them generate better insights and better outcomes by leveraging data and applying innovative technologies like generative AI.

In addition to speaking slots and demos, we’re proud to highlight new examples of these solutions announced this week, including by Philips, Pieces Technologies, Symplr, and Konica Minolta:

Philips Expands Collaboration with AWS, Scaling Digital Pathology and Enabling AI/ML to Improve Diagnostics, Clinical Productivity, and Research

To address the growing need for scalable cloud-based digital pathology solutions, Philips announced that it will work with AWS to help pathology labs and healthcare organizations better store, manage, and analyze growing volumes of digital pathology data. With its new solution, Philips aims to improve digital workflow integration, access, and reliability to advance patient care, as well as enable advanced AI/ML capabilities. With this, healthcare organizations can realize greater productivity, insights, and care collaboration to address complex medical cases, like in cancer care. The solution will also accelerate research through enabling large scale clinical trials, and multi-institute studies. Philips will build with AWS HealthImaging, a HIPAA-eligible service from AWS, to optimize storage, increase scale, and enable AI and research, and with Amazon Bedrock, which offers high-performing foundation models (FMs), to support generative AI application development and integration.

Pieces Unveils Generative AI-Powered Personal Writing Assistant for Physicians Built with AWS HealthScribe

Pieces Technologies announced the launch of a new advanced phone-based solution designed to enhance patient progress note generation with a voice-enabled assistant that understands and contextualizes the patient history. The solution, Pieces in Your Pocket, enables physicians to “talk, rather than dictate” about what they want to see in patient progress notes in as little as 30-45 seconds. To generate the progress note, the solution combines Pieces’ comprehension and LLM engines with AWS HealthScribe, a HIPAA-eligible service from AWS that uses speech recognition and generative AI to automatically generate preliminary clinical documentation. Pieces then generates a fully formed note within the EHR, incorporating all of the physician’s key points using its working longitudinal understanding of the patient, the physician’s prior notes and authorship style, and the patient’s current issues and results.
