Building compliant healthcare solutions using Landing Zone Accelerator

In this post, we explore the complexities of data privacy and controls on Amazon Web Services (AWS), examine how creating a landing zone within which to contain such data is important, and highlight the differences between creating a landing zone from scratch compared with using the AWS Landing Zone Accelerator (LZA) for Healthcare. To aid explanation, we use a simple healthcare workload as an example. We also explain how LZA for Healthcare codifies HIPAA controls and AWS Security Best Practices to accelerate the creation of an environment to run protective health information workloads in AWS.

Using Protective DNS services with AWS workloads

Protective DNS services, commonly known as PDNS, are a go-to solution if you’re aiming to bolster the security of your infrastructure from the ground up. Unlike traditional methods involving software-based agents or devices for traffic filtering, PDNS services take a unique approach – they scrutinise the DNS requests made by users and adjust responses based on predefined rules within the service. In this post, we explore the seamless integration of PDNS services with workloads in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, showcasing their effectiveness in enhancing cybersecurity within cloud environments.

How Pearson improves its resilience with AWS Fault Injection Service

Chaos engineering, often misunderstood as intentionally breaking the production environment, aligns with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Well-Architected Reliability pillar. Its purpose is to methodically simulate real-world disruptions in a controlled manner, spanning service providers, infrastructure, workloads, and individual components. In this blog post, we show how Pearson PLC, an AWS education technology (EdTech) customer, successfully implemented resilient architectures through chaos engineering using AWS Fault Injection Service (FIS).

Indiana DOC works with Mi-Case to fast-track offender management system launch on AWS

In 2021, the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) awarded a contract to Mi-Case, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner, to replace its legacy systems managing case data across the state’s corrections facilities. The project kicked off in February 2021 and the new web and cloud-based offender management system (OMS) went live in May 2023. Read this blog post to learn why implementations like it routinely take several years and why this project was different.

The benefits of running controlled substance databases with AWS

Healthcare authorities and providers use state-run controlled substance databases (CSDs) to track prescriptions and identify patients for substance abuse. CSDs help evaluate treatment options, screen patients who may be at risk for drug abuse problems, and make informed decisions about prescribing medication. This post explains how healthcare authorities can leverage CSD data to enhance their decision-making processes within business operations by using Amazon Web Services (AWS).
