Delivering Enterprise Imaging on AWS Cloud
Healthcare and Clinical Imaging in the Cloud

Read about how Dicom Systems is enabling accelerated clinical deep learning models with an advanced de-identification framework by leveraging AWS Snowball for secure data migration and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for data lake collaboration.
HIPAA Security and Compliance on AWS
In the last 12 months, AWS has released a comprehensive security strategy with healthcare customers in mind. They have taken a noticeably “more proactive” approach to compliance. AWS has a standard Business Associate Addendum (BAA) presented to customers for signature. It takes into account the unique services AWS provides and accommodates the AWS Shared Responsibility Model.
On the AWS Security Blog in July of 2018, they announced that healthcare customers and partners would now be able to accept a single AWS Business Associate Addendum (BAA) for all accounts within their organization. Once accepted, all current and future accounts created or added to the organization would immediately be covered by the BAA.
Just last month, AWS announced expanded service certification by certifying services at launch. For the first time, they have launched generally available services with PCI DSS, ISO 9001/27001/27017/27018, SOC 2, and HIPAA eligibility. According to their blog, “that means customers who rely on or require these compliance programs can select from 10 brand new services right away, without having to wait for one or more trailing audit cycles.”
