Philips, Amazon Web Services to introduce cloud-based recovery service for healthcare data: 4 key points

Philips has introduced a medical data backup service created in collaboration with Amazon Web Services.

Here are four things to know about the Philips' HealthSuite data recovery storage service.

1. The secure data recovery service is designed to capture and backup a healthcare organization's entire data repository in the cloud.

2. The solution utilizes AWS Import/Export Snowball to integrate, encrypt and transfer a healthcare organization's data repository to the cloud within days.

3. The solution's users are able to plug in an AWS Import/Export Snowball device into their network, transfer the data and then have the data physically shipped back and transferred to the Philips's HealthSuite digital platform.

4. "Due to the nature of their data, many healthcare organizations have understandably in the past adopted in-house solutions, but the explosion in the amount of data they now need to secure, together with new regulatory requirements, mean that they need to adopt a different approach," said Dale Wiggins, General Manager HealthSuite digital platform, Philips. "By working together with AWS we can offer our customers a next-generation solution enabled by our HealthSuite platform that removes the time and cost barriers of cloud-based healthcare data backup and management."
