American Heart Association (AHA), the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke—the two leading causes of death in the world—is building its Precision Medicine Platform on the AWS Cloud.
The AHA Precision Medicine Platform will include a vast array of curated datasets that are centrally stored, easily searched and accessible, and managed on the AWS Cloud. The platform enables researchers and clinicians to aggregate and analyze a rich breadth and depth of data, including longitudinal cohorts, proteomic, genomic, and gene-expression data using a precision medicine approach. This data and analysis will in turn allow researchers to uncover critical cardiovascular disease insights that translate into medical innovations and positively impact millions of lives.
“By using the AWS Cloud, the Platform will harness the power of big data to revolutionize the way cardiovascular research is performed and speed the promise of precision cardiovascular medicine,” said AHA CEO Nancy Brown. “The AHA remains steadfast in its commitment to eliminate the tragic global burden cardiovascular disease places on individuals, families, healthcare systems, and entire nations by mapping scientific discovery to the dramatic advances in biomedical research and technology innovation.”
