Cloud-driven healthcare innovation

Matthew Gendron, AWS, Tuesday 17 May 2022

Medicine always relies on new technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment. We are now witnessing an explosion of health information, which is the driving force behind the invention of a drug that adapts to the limitations of modern society. Personalized medicine and remote health services are advancing at the expense of greater IT infrastructure, which explains the movement towards the cloud for healthcare organizations.

Cloud-enabled drug inventions

New technologies, such as high-throughput sequencing, have revolutionized genomics and given the hope of finding a cure for a genetic disease that is considered incurable. This has enabled the emergence of accurate drugs aimed at prescribing personalized treatments considering the patient’s illness as well as their genetics.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a tool widely used by the medical profession, such as in the medical imaging sector where collaboration between physicians and AI is the only way to effectively analyze and identify the many images generated by each test. Information that, for some, could not be detected with the naked eye. It has created a tool, in the case of Rayvolve Ajmed And which uses AI to detect fractures and thus saves valuable time for doctors who can devote more time to diagnosing complex diseases.

These innovations are based on the extraction and analysis of a myriad of data necessary for scientific advancement and the development of new and more effective treatments, if they are to be able to utilize them. In the case of data generated by high-throughput sequencing, translational bioinformatics is used to construct it and make it available to scientists and physicians. This technology, necessary for the development of perfect medicine, requires important IT infrastructure. That is why many healthcare companies are embracing like a cloud Modern Which has defined a research and production strategy focusing entirely on the cloud for several years.

The cloud and many related services have facilitated the generalization of AI in the healthcare sector and its use by researchers and scientists. AI makes it possible to organize data and discover highly complex relationships between them. Diagnosis is more precise and it is now possible to predict treatment effectiveness.

Care offers are expanding with the help of technology

The health crisis has forced health workers to adapt immediately to continue providing care despite limitations. Remote counseling has suddenly increased and many initiatives have been taken to improve the quality chain of care. The speed of adaptation depends in part on the cloud.

Beyond the resilience of the IT infrastructure needed to support the growth of telemedicine, the cloud provides a variety of AI services, such as chatbot creation or the development of voice recognition applications. Some hospitals have thus been able to quickly create a chatbot that asks patients about their symptoms and risk factors and directs them to video counseling if necessary. Others have developed specific applications to monitor patients at home, suspected of being infected or infected, and thus alleviate the hospital’s infrastructure without compromising medical assistance. During this time, remote monitoring also progressed. Thanks to the contribution of the connected health object, caregivers have been able to follow the important indicators of patients with covid in the centralized dashboard and anticipate their hospitalization in case of deterioration. Underlying For example, AWS has created a unique cardiac telemonitoring platform in the cloud and is building medical algorithms based on artificial intelligence. Impulsivity aims to facilitate remote monitoring of cardiac devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators and implantable cardiac monitors, for better patient care.

Cloud provides an essential technical basis for medical innovation. The epidemic has encouraged new behaviors and accelerated the adoption of new ones. Many of them will continue and others will emerge, thus contributing to the fight against medical deserts, providing care to isolated people or people with low mobility, or relieving hospital resources in crisis situations.
