Philips on AWS
Founded in the Netherlands in 1891, at the dawn of electricity, Philips first developed cost-effective, reliable incandescent light bulbs before expanding to early medical X-ray imaging, personal care electronics, and even the invention of the CD and DVD. More recently, Philips has honed its focus on creating innovative technological solutions for health and well-being, building its HealthSuite Platform on AWS to drive improved patient outcomes.
Founded in 1891, Philips is a leading health technology company focused on improving people's health and enabling better patient outcomes. As an early adopter of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Philips relies on dozens of AWS services to power the Philips HealthSuite Platform. The platform helps customers improve their efficiency and delivery quality with services that include connections to clinical-grade smart devices, a built-in framework to ingest, manage, and analyze healthcare data, and more. AWS provides Philips and its customers with scalable, cost-effective, regulatory and HIPAA-compliant solutions. From the cloud to the edge, Philips speeds innovation, simplifies security and compliance, and increases efficiency in delivering innovative healthcare solutions by building on AWS.
Philips HealthSuite Platform Speeds Healthcare Innovation on AWS
Philips built its HealthSuite Platform on AWS to enable virtually unlimited scalability, faster time-to-market, and simplified privacy and security compliance for innovative healthcare and life science solutions. The HealthSuite Platform combines the power, security, and flexibility of AWS services with Philips’ healthcare expertise to bring innovation to the industry.
A Tour of Philips HealthSuite Platform Powered by AWS
Philips HealthSuite Platform offers an orchestrated collection of ready-to-use, regulatory-compliant cloud platform services built natively on AWS. HealthSuite Platform services such as HealthSuite Host, HealthSuite Authorize, and HealthSuite Connect rely on a range of AWS solutions, including Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, and AWS IoT Core, to enable Philips’ customers to easily connect devices and collect, aggregate, store, and analyze electronic health data.
How Philips Turns the AWS Cloud into a Telehealth Business
An early adopter of AWS, Philips sought to create its HealthSuite Platform as a healthcare solution that leveraged the benefits of the cloud for improved patient outcomes. It migrated 44 PB of medical imaging and other data to the AWS Cloud, even while reducing storage costs and simplifying connectivity for medical devices.

Disrupting Within: Driving Better Health with Philips
Patients deserve personalized care. But delivering the best health outcomes possible is challenging when there's no centralized location for patient records—and all patients don’t have equal access to the same quality of care.
Philips is helping to break down these barriers. Its HealthSuite System of Engagement centralizes and secures data, while Philips Oncology Pathways Navigator, built on first-class treatment pathways provided by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, provides doctors with access to excellent treatment recommendations. Dana-Farber uses these to bring patients and providers together to choose the optimal path forward for each person.
AWS is How: Philips Makes Medical Diagnostics Accessible to More People
Philips is helping close global healthcare gaps with mobile technology, like its portable, app-based ultrasound solution, Lumify, which helps medical professionals serve patients outside hospital walls. Lumify runs on the Philips HealthSuite Platform, built on AWS, and supports a number of imaging scenarios, including heart, lung, abdomen, and OB/Gyn examinations. Moreover, Philips has brought the Reacts collaboration platform to Lumify, which enables Lumify users around the world to collaborate virtually in real time by sharing their device cameras, voices, and ultrasound exams.
Philips Uses Amazon Redshift for Large Data Workloads
Philips uses data to drive decisions, and, when its on-premises database solutions couldn’t handle the amount of data in 37 million records, it turned to AWS. Philips set up Attunity CloudBeam, an AWS Marketplace product for Amazon Redshift, in less than one minute to simplify, accelerate and automate data transfers to the AWS Cloud. Before AWS, the company’s fastest data transfers were 434 records per minute. Using AWS, the company transferred 37 million records in 90 minutes and can optimize large data sets within two hours.
Philips Uses AWS to Analyze 15 PB of Patient Data
Philips HealthSuite Platform analyzes and stores 15 PB of patient data gathered from 390 million imaging studies, medical records, and patient inputs to provide healthcare providers with actionable data, which they can use to directly impact patient care. Running on AWS provides the reliability, performance and scalability that Philips needs to help protect patient data as its global digital platform grows at the rate of one petabyte per month.
