It was an honor to be asked to present the first session on HIPAA compliance ever at AWS re:Invent. Check out the video of my joint presentation with Mark Wellscott, Director of Application Development at Spectrum Health, where we talked about bringing their patient portal live on AWS. We solved some tough issues, including security, EHR integration, and DevOps concerns around automated deployments.
This was the first patient portal on AWS, and also earned the first successful Meaningful Use II attestation on AWS. We effectively proved that healthcare in the cloud is possible, and that cloud technology in healthcare is not only viable, but inevitable.
