The data integration committee at a Fortune 500 life sciences organization is responsible for strategy, data standards, and tooling as the company scales to more than 100 application environments across different global regions. The committee is made up of product management personnel across product and service lines, innovation staff and directors, and business technology leaders. As one would expect, the compliance office is also critically involved to provide sign off on all plans.
Together, this global team is charged with modernizing web and mobile application experiences for commercial applications for care management, consumer applications for personal health management and access, and clinical research and development applications to analyze patient-reported outcomes.

The company examined the market for a cloud solution and quickly decided on AWS. Their challenge was to preserve and build upon their approach and their innovation model in a way that would be faster, more flexible, more trustworthy, and more standardized.
The situation was complicated by many factors including a need to link disparate data sources internally and externally while maintaining security and compliance to different geographic frameworks. AWS cloud and data solutions proved to be the best foundation to bridge multiple data centers and geographies, while Datica’s HITRUST-certified platform on top of AWS provided the security and compliance layer and integration engine to securely add patient data to their applications.

One of the key benefits they see with using Datica and AWS together is reshaping the business conversations in innovation teams from “how to build a secure and a compliant application,” to “how to deliver better outcomes.” This customer now has the ability to drive a predictable cadence and safe format for their applications to deploy and access patient data. This means that time, energy, and patience trying to understand how to keep data secure and maintain adherence to compliance frameworks is now redirected to improving and developing new applications to make data more accessible and actionable across the spectrum of healthcare.
It also means better outcomes for patients. For example, one new application launched through this new standardized process provides surgeons with the patient outcome data they need to judge and improve how effective their surgeries are. Getting this data back into the hands of the surgeon was not possible before the customer used AWS and Datica.
With a standardized enterprise strategy using AWS and Datica, this global life sciences organization has met their challenge to launch and scale new initiatives while maintaining compliance and data control across multiple countries.
