Healthcare providers around the world are using AWS to deliver improved care to their patients. AWS reduces the time and effort required to run existing workloads, and also provides access to powerful new analytics capabilities, all while meeting the security and privacy requirements that you expect. You can save resources by using affordable archiving solutions, save space in your hospital by putting your backup servers in the cloud, and also take advantage of new ways to manage patient information in your hospital information systems.
AWS operates on a low-cost, pay-as-you-go model. You spend less on maintenance of legacy systems and have more resources to support new technologies that help patients.
By running on AWS, you gain access to an environment built for the world's most secure organizations. In addition, AWS makes security easier by managing over 1800 security controls so that you don't have to.
AWS can help connect you with the right resources to implement your project. In addition to support offered directly by AWS, the AWS Partner Network (APN) includes technology and consulting partners covering a wide range of applications.
"The cloud can lower the operating cost, and actually allow us to focus on what we do well, which is taking care of patients."
William H. Morris, Associate Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Clinic
"We’re confident we can build secure and compliant applications with AWS. They make us agile and we love it."

The modern healthcare organization relies on sophisticated analytical tools to ensure that patients are receiving the best care possible. AWS has the components to support your entire analytical pipeline, from data ingestion, analysis and machine learning, through visualization, storage, warehousing, and archiving.

AWS can help you improve your patient engagement in a number of ways. Deploying on AWS allows you to focus on building the best patient experience, rather than managing infrastructure. Our cloud-based infrastructure automatically scales up during peak usage periods. And any application built on AWS can easily feed data into analytics tools and apply machine learning, or deploy visualization services from AWS or other popular vendors like Tableau and Qlik.
AWS enables innovation in healthcare by making it much easier to incorporate new technologies like mobile or internet of things into care delivery. With AWS, you can easily stream data into the cloud, and only deploy IT infrastructure when it's needed to analyze incoming data. You can then store the data directly in the cloud, apply cloud-based analytics, or send the data to a web or mobile dashboard.
