Clinicians capture thousands of clinical images and videos every year. Health care organizations need an efficient way to ensure medical content is safely stored, but still easily accessible for consultations, procedure reviews, teaching and quality initiatives. Such a solution is absolutely necessary for surgeons who require continuous consultation from their own practices and surgery operations to perform a quality controlled surgery.
A cloud-based architecture is preferred over traditional IT infrastructure as it makes it easier in storing and backing up the sensitive data securely in multiple availability zones that gives low latency and easy access. In addition to this, the AWS utility-based services are HIPAA compliant. Through the consultation of an experienced AWS cloud architect, the solution can be a cost-efficient, fault-tolerant and highly scalable solution. Such a solution has a lot of potential in the education sector as well as it can provide live streaming/recorded streaming services with low latency and meet demand with high quality of practice surgeries to students remotely.
The following AWS architecture can be utilized for achieving such a solution. The solution can help:
