Amazon HealthLake Imaging

Store, access, and analyze medical images in the cloud at petabyte scale

The volume of medical imaging data has continued to accelerate over the past decade with over 5.5 billion imaging procedures done each year. Since 2008, the average number of imaging procedures assigned to radiologists in the US has increased from 58 to 100 per day, all while the average image study size has doubled to 150 MB – slowing down decision making. With HealthLake Imaging, healthcare providers and their software partners can run their medical imaging applications in the cloud to increase scale while also reducing infrastructure costs. HealthLake Imaging helps providers reduce the total cost of medical imaging storage up to 40% by running their medical imaging applications from a single, authoritative copy of patient imaging data in the cloud. HealthLake Imaging enables access to medical imaging data with sub-second image retrieval latencies at scale powered by cloud-native APIs and applications from AWS partners. Providers can realize the cost savings of transitioning to the cloud while preserving low latency performance, enabling them to focus their time and resources to deliver high quality patient care.
