4 health system collaborations with Big Tech

Hospitals and health systems have been looking to Big Tech for partnerships that will help them improve their EHR and administrative operations and find innovative care solutions.

Here are four health system collaborations with Amazon, Google, Meta and Microsoft from the past month:

1. Boston-based Tufts Medicine had EHR installation costs of around $70 million last year, The Boston Globe reported Jan. 23. The health system uses Epic EHR, which it transitioned to Amazon Web Services in 2022.

2. University of Chicago debuted an accelerator Jan. 20 to develop and fund artificial intelligence and data science startups, including those focused on healthcare, and is offering credits for Amazon Web Services and Google for Startups.

3. Artificial intelligence can reconstruct rapid MRIs into higher-quality images than traditional scans, according to a Jan. 17 Radiology study that came out of a partnership between New York City-based NYU Langone Health and Facebook parent company Meta.

4. Somerville, Mass.-based Mass General Brigham partners with Microsoft, Google and Amazon Web Services on data access and management capabilities; has worked to improve its employee experience through upgrades to Microsoft's Office 365 suite; and uses enterprise asset management dashboards built on Microsoft technologies, its chief information and digital officer, Jane Moran, told Becker's in an interview published Jan. 5.
