You might have no idea about this, but Singapore is regarded as one of the world’s healthiest countries. And this is highly due to the modern and efficient public healthcare systems. When talking about how Singapore’s healthcare sector has transformed in the last couple of years, then you can never risk forgetting about the Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS).
IHiS’ mission is to improve the health of Singaporeans and health administration by integrating intelligent, highly resilient, secure, and cost-effective technologies with processes and people. The company is highly known for helping shape Singapore’s healthcare sector as it supports more than 60, 000 healthcare users. This is made possible through the application of clinical informatics, computer science, data science, mechatronics, and standards-based IT.
And their role was highly visible as Singapore and the rest of the worlds battled to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last couple of years, IHiS has worked with public and private healthcare organizations across the country to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. From teching-up community care facilities and vaccination centers to boosting the capabilities of all public healthcare hospitals, we can never downplay what they brings to the healthcare sector.
In its quest to support Singapore’s national vaccination programme, IHiS decided to come up with something new. And this is when news of ‘IHiS scales vaccine operations with AWS’ rocked the airwaves. After all, its team needed to develop and implement new features at speed to address evolving vaccination policies and changing, on-the-ground requirements.
But IHiS already ran several systems on AWS and still had a large number of staff who were proficient in AWS service design and operation. With this in mind, IHiS decided AWS would serve as the foundation for its new vaccination operations IT system. While developing the system, IHiS relied on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) o provide secure, resizable, compute capacity in the cloud.
The Bottom Line
It is without a doubt that Singapore’s IHiS has increased bandwidth and resiliency in vaccine operations with AWS. Keep in mind AWS is committed to providing customers with privacy and security protections when using AWS services. This includes the extensive set of security and encryption services that meet the requirements of security-sensitive organizations to help implement complete customers control of their data. Be sure to do your homework if you are to find more information about how AWS helps in critical healthcare missions in Singapore.
