Amazon Launches Service for Big Data Analytics in Healthcare
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced Amazon HealthLake, a HIPAA-eligible service that aims to support interoperability standards and further drive the use of big data analytics in healthcare.
Healthcare data is often incomplete and unstructured. Information is stored in disparate formats and systems, including clinical notes, lab reports, insurance claims, medical images, recorded conversations, and time series data. Structuring this data can help organizations make more informed care decisions, design more comprehensive clinical trials, and complete tasks more efficiently.
