Amazon Web Services (AWS) is teaming up with the Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance (PHDA) to tackle some of healthcare’s deepest data challenges.

John G. Baresky

AWS and PHDA are launching an advanced healthcare computing collaboration. The program’s aim is to accelerate progress in healthcare initiatives that are data-heavy endeavors including medical imaging, population health, precision medicine and oncology. A total of 8 studies are featured in their plans through which each of the members will contribute staff, time, clinical and technical resources.

PHDA is an academic, clinical and technical partnership

  • University of Pittsburgh (PITT)
  • University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC)
  • Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)

PHDA combines the academic, clinical, financial and technical attributes of the 3 organizations to work on complex healthcare challenges that intertwine medical and data complexities.

AWS and PHDA are clinical and technical superpowers

Many healthcare data platforms and formats are not readily compatible and when enormous amounts of data and complex processes are involved, it is challenging to orchestrate all of the resources to achieve results. The AWS and PHDA alliance has the staff, experience and technology to overcome these hurdles.
