AWS HealthLake

Securely store, transform, transact, and analyze health data in minutes

What is HealthLake?

AWS HealthLake is a HIPAA-eligible service offering healthcare companies a complete view of individual and patient population health data using FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperable Resources) API based transactions to securely store and transform their data into a queryable format at petabyte scale, and further analyze this data using machine learning (ML) models. Using the HealthLake FHIR-based APIs, healthcare organizations can easily import large volumes of health data, including medical reports or patient notes, from on-premises systems to a secure, compliant, and pay-as-you-go service in the cloud. HealthLake offers built-in natural language processing (NLP) models to help customers understand and extract meaningful medical information from a single copy of raw health data, such as medications, procedures, and diagnoses.
