Amazon Web Services ( AWS / Cloud ) In Talks With EHR / EMR Healthcare Data Giant Cerner

…With night vision 6 times greater than a human’s, a natural love of water and measuring up to 6 feet long, Jaguars are found in the Amazon Basin and other remote regions of Central and South America…

Based on insights from management consulting leader PwC; “Amazon does have the expertise that makes it a natural candidate to look for ideas that would reform the U.S. health care industry as it tries to control costs”

It is no secret Amazon ( NASDAQ: AMZN ) has been diligently expanding its presence in the healthcare sector. Their activities include obtaining pharmacy wholesaling licenses in at least 12 states and expanding the number of medical products well beyond those typically found in the medicine cabinets of consumers worldwide. Late in November word got out that Amazon and Cerner were in latter phases of discussion regarding more advanced initiatives involving Cloud and healthcare technology applications.

Amazon and Cerner have worked together on other healthcare data management / storage deals in the past

…Based in North Kansas City, Missouri, Cerner is a global healthcare information technology company generating over $4.5 billion in annual sales with more than 20,000 employees…

Amazon’s Web Services (AWS) unit is generating almost $5 billion in quarterly revenues

Healthcare is privacy, data-driven and precision-based industry. While Amazon has excellent data security and broad analytic capabilities, it does not have these attributes recognized and established in the healthcare community. They have made deliberate steps to change this including fortifying its AWS services to meet HIPAA requirements and secure protected health information ( PHI ). Collectively, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon SQS, AWS Direct Connect and AWS Database Migration Service are HIPAA compliant.

Cerner, founded in 1979, has a proven track record and a positive reputation in the healthcare industry

“Amazon Could Gain 20% Through Entering Healthcare”

Looking ahead, there is an array of options and strategies for Amazon and Cerner to consider
