You might have no idea about this, but Singapore is one of the world’s healthiest countries. And this is highly due to the modern and efficient public healthcare systems. When discussing how Singapore’s healthcare sector has transformed in the last couple of years, 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 applying clinical informatics, computer science, data science, mechatronics, and standards-based IT.
And their role was prominent as Singapore, and the rest of the world battled to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. IHiS has worked with public and private healthcare organizations in the last couple of years to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. From teaching-up community care facilities and vaccination centers to boosting the capabilities of all public healthcare hospitals, we can never downplay what they bring to the healthcare sector.
In its quest to support Singapore’s national vaccination program, IHiS decided to develop something new. And this is when news of ‘IHiS scales vaccine operations with AWS’ rocked the airwaves. After all, its team needed to quickly develop and implement new features to address evolving vaccination policies and changing, on-the-ground requirements.
But IHiS already ran several AWS systems and still had a lot of staff proficient in AWS service design and operation. With this in mind, IHiS decided AWS would serve as the IT system’s foundation for its new vaccination operations. While developing the system, IHiS relied on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) o provide secure, resizable computing capacity.
It is without a doubt that Singapore’s IHiS has increased bandwidth and resiliency in vaccine operations with AWS. Keep in mind that 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 customer 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.
