The second-annual HIMSS18 Cloud Computing Forum on March 5 will set the stage for a week in which AWS will be showcasing its capabilities and showing how healthcare organizations of all shapes and sizes are heading to the cloud to help foster efficiencies and speed innovation.

Mark Johnston, director of global business development for healthcare and life sciences at AWS, will present a session titled, “Debunking Myths and Establishing a Foundational Understanding.” And his colleague Patrick Combes, global technical leader, healthcare and life sciences at AWS will give a talk, “Architecting for HIPAA” to show how the cloud can help organizations more easily comply with privacy and security regulations.

Also, several AWS healthcare customers – payers such as Cambia Health and vendors like Orion Health – will discuss their own cloud experiences at the forum.

AWS is working with a wide array of healthcare organizations to push the envelope on scientific discovery, drive operational efficiencies and help organizations deploy secure and cost-effective analytics pipelines.
