Tag: AWS Well Architected Framework
As the amount of health data increases, different healthcare, life sciences, population health, and public health organizations are working to modernize their data infrastructure, unify their data, and innovate faster with technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML). In this blog post, we dive deep on architecture guidance that enables healthcare providers to improve patient care.
AWS announced the launch of a Government Lens for the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The Government Lens is a collection of customer-proven design principles, scenarios, and technology agnostic best practices designed to encourage the unique context and requirements of governments globally to be considered when designing, building, and operating government workloads on AWS.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies are transforming many industries. But although public sector organizations are realizing the benefits of these technologies, there are many remaining challenges, including biases and a lack of transparency, that limit the wider adoption to unlock the full potential of AI and ML. In this post, learn a high-level framework for how AWS can help you address these challenges and provide better outcomes for constituents.
AWS announced the release of the Operational Readiness Review (ORR) program as a custom lens for the AWS Well-Architected Tool, which is designed to help you review the state of your applications and workloads against architectural best practices, identify opportunities for improvement, and track progress over time. Creating a custom lens for the Well-Architected Tool with the ORR program can help supplement Well-Architected reviews by including lessons learned that are specific to your business, culture, tools, and governance rules. Learn how to set up the ORR as a custom lens in this walkthrough.
Many organizations may not fully recognize or calculate the true costs of workload resiliency decisions. These true costs include the full spectrum of costing considerations that make up a decision, from readily-determinable accounting costs to less-recognizable intangible costs. As public sector organizations often have limited resources and complex missions, it’s important to understand the true costs and economic impact involved in a resiliency decision; this can help these organizations to both prepare and plan with their available resources.
How AWS supports the 10th anniversary of National Voter Registration Day with digital tools for civic engagement
On September 20, 2022, Americans celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a massive cross-country effort to register voters ahead of the federal midterm elections. AWS is a proud sponsor of National Voter Registration Day to help drive civic engagement. AWS supports important resources for US citizens to register to vote; plus, government technology companies (GovTechs) use AWS to expand voting resources to Americans across the country. Read on to learn more about how organizations use AWS to make it simple to register to vote.
One small team created a cloud-based predictive modeling solution to improve healthcare services in the UK
How do you predict and prepare for your citizens’ health and wellness needs during the COVID-19 pandemic? Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS) quickly scaled a platform on AWS to support the 1.8 million people in their region with Nexus Intelligence, an interactive health intelligence application with a suite of predictive models against various measures of need and health outcomes. Nexus Intelligence not only supported the ICS response to the pandemic, but is expected to help reconfigure and re-invest in services to improve the health and well-being of the population and reduce health inequalities.
To establish network connectivity between on-premises data centers, branch locations, and cloud resources, organizations use a hybrid network. This technical walkthrough explains how to implement hybrid connectivity from your premises to AWS GovCloud (US) and commercial AWS Regions using a dedicated private network connection provided by AWS Direct Connect (DX).
Vaccine demand brought unprecedented load to the launch of Texas A&M Health’s vaccination sign-up site. The Texas A&M Health team used AWS to develop a solution to reduce outages and errors, and scale REDCap to get vaccines to Texans.
COVID-19 highlighted the existing shortage in personnel within healthcare and is now challenging many hospitals with high staff turnover and sick leave. Planerio created workforce management solutions that help healthcare organizations modernize their workforce administration. Their shift planning software uses artificial intelligence (AI) and takes into account a range of planning variables such as employee qualifications and availabilities, employee preferences and requests, requirements of different shifts and workplaces, legal regulations and tariffs, and more.
