5 health systems migrating to the cloud

Health systems in the U.S. are eager to join the cloud, and many of them are migrating their entire digital ecosystems, with help from big names such as Microsoft and Amazon, to a platform that promises to support a more efficient, equitable and insightful healthcare industry and deliver high-value patient outcomes. 

Here are five health systems that have chosen to migrate to the cloud since May 25:

  1. Boston-based Tufts Medicine moved more than 3 million health accounts into the Epic EHR using Amazon Web Services. Through the migration, Tufts Medicine’s telehealth and virtual care services will now be powered through Amazon Connect, a cloud-based contact center.
  2. Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger tapped Amazon as its strategic cloud provider and plans to transition its entire digital portfolio of more than 400 applications and numerous workflows to Amazon Web Services. The transition is one of the largest EHR migrations to Amazon’s cloud platform to date.
  3. Helena, Mont.-based St. Peter’s Health tapped Innovaccer, a health cloud company, as its strategic cloud provider and plans to transform its EHR data into unified patient records.
  4. New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System is transitioning its Epic EHR to Microsoft Azure and using its cloud service for much of the health system’s operations.
  5. Buffalo, N.Y.-based Kaleida Health tapped industry cloud company Infor to transition its supply chain and financial applications to Amazon Web Services.
