Start Building on AWS Today with Quick Starts and Technical Blog Posts

AWS Healthcare and Life Sciences Quick Starts are built by AWS Solutions Architects and partners to help you deploy popular technologies on AWS based on AWS security and availability best practices. These Quick Starts reduce hundreds of manual procedures into just a few steps so you can build your secure and compliant production environment quickly and start using it immediately.


HITRUST Quick Start

This Quick Start deploys a model environment on AWS that can help organizations with workloads that fall within the scope of the Health Information Trust Alliance Common Security Framework (HITRUST-CSF). Its architecture maps to certain technical requirements imposed by HITRUST controls. Using AWS CloudFormation to simplify provisioning and management, AWS resources are automatically configured and deployed in an AWS account in about 30 minutes using simple, open-source scripts. The Quick Start includes security controls reference that maps HITRUST Regulatory Control IDs to resources launched by the Quick Start along with a step-by-step deployment guide to accelerate HITRUST eligibility on AWS.
