Health Informatics News

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and constitutes a set of U.S. regulatory standards including privacy and security rules. These standards, set for the US as a whole relate to the protection of individually identifiable health information and the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. There are also other rules relating to enforcement and breach notification for example.
 
In an AWS blogpost Amazon Web Services has announced that their list of HIPAA eligible machine learning (ML) services has now increased. Services newly added are: Amazon Translate, that the blog says healthcare organisations could use to construct transcripts from audio relating to patient calls, Amazon Comprehend, that it is noted might allow patients to interact with their healthcare provider in whichever language they prefer, and Amazon Transcribe, which is described as offering the potential for healthcare professionals to better understand their patents and improve engagement.

This blogpost continues: "To support our healthcare customers, AWS HIPAA eligible services enable covered entities and their business associates subject to HIPAA to use the secure AWS environment to process, maintain, and store protected health information. Healthcare companies like NextGen Healthcare, Omada Health, Verge Health, and Orion Health are already running HIPAA workloads on AWS to analyze numerous patient records." and "Many healthcare customers are exploring new ways use the power of ML to advance their current workloads and transform how they provide care to patients, all while meeting the requirements of HIPAA."
