The advent of cloud technology, coupled with advances in fields like epidemiology, genomics, and data analytics, has led to transformational change in how we use data in health. These developments enable a data-driven approach in individual care, public health, and health-related research.
Public sector organizations often utilize third-party Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to manage various business functions, such as marketing and communications, payment processing, workflow automation, donor management, and more. This common SaaS landscape can lead to data silos where data becomes isolated in disparate systems and difficult to centralize for business insights. If existing SaaS connectors are not available, public sector organizations can use AWS to build an API-driven data pipeline to consolidate data from SaaS platforms offering open APIs. In this post, learn how to build an API data pipeline on AWS.
Data spaces can help break down these silos between industries and sectors. Data spaces facilitate a decentralized and secure data exchange across organizations and industries that come together to pool, access, process, and share data. They enable simple, secure, open standards-based, and interoperable data-sharing, while allowing for organizations to maintain full control over their data. Learn how data spaces support simple and secure data-sharing between organizations and sectors, current data space initiatives in Europe and beyond, and how to leverage a data space with AWS.
Electronic notifications of patient events are a vital mechanism for care providers to improve care coordination and promote appropriate follow-up care in a timely manner. This post shows how a combination of Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies, like AWS Lambda, Amazon Comprehend Medical, and AWS Fargate, can effectively manage and deliver actionable data to help healthcare customers deliver electronic notifications in a secure and efficient way.
Using AWS and open-source software, Fred Hutch built a single, user-friendly, browser-based solution, Motuz, to streamline and simplify upload of large quantities of data. Motuz helped Fred Hutch de-silo its data and make it shareable and accessible.
