Press ReleaseNovember 16, 2017
Datica and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare Co-present at AWS re:Invent 2017 about Standardizing Compliance on the Cloud
Datica, the cloud platform for digital health applications, today announced the selection of Adam Leko, the company’s chief technology officer and David Deas, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s (MLH) corporate director, innovation & knowledge analytics, for a joint healthcare presentation on how to eliminate HIPAA compliance as a barrier to speed-to-market hospital development goals at this year’s AWS re:Invent conference.
In 2017, Datica has enabled several hospital systems to more effectively reduce capital and operational costs by safely and securely moving to the cloud in a compliant manner. This presentation will show how MLH uses the compliant Datica platform to ensure that the configuration and orchestration of Amazon Web Services (AWS) HIPAA-eligible services meet the controls set by the healthcare’s most stringent accreditation body, HITRUST, with every workload deployment. - Adam Leko, Datica
While demand for on-premises infrastructure has diminished in healthcare, the adoption of cloud-based solutions has grown exponentially. Cloud computing is proving that it expands accessibility to healthcare data and Datica’s platform is helping those health systems interested in deploying digital health applications in the cloud to meet the rigorous security and regulatory compliance standards of the industry.
By removing security concerns as a barrier to using cloud-based systems, Datica has opened up a new world of possibilities that we would otherwise have been too cautious to undertake. Leveraging the ease and expandability of the compliant Datica platform running on AWS we have greatly accelerated our Innovation team’s capabilities, which allows us to play out ‘what if’ scenarios without large capital commitments or burdensome ROI proofs. All of this has expanded the number of projects we can tackle and lead to a remarkable transformation in how we approach healthcare innovation. - David Deas, MLH
The Datica/MLH 60-minute live presentation, How Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s Focus on Standardizing Compliant Ops Led to Breakthrough Apps will take place on Monday, November 27 at the Venetian, Level 2, Venetian F in Las Vegas at 12:15 Pacific Time.
