Cloudwick Modernizes Global Healthcare R&D on AWS with Databricks

Cloudwick Completes Bimodal Transformation for Global Healthcare Provider

Newark, CA – February 17, 2016 – Cloudwick, the leading provider of bimodal digital business services and solutions, announced that a Global 1000 healthcare organization that delivers innovative software and consulting services and electronic health record (EHR) system support selected it for its data science transformation needs.

To become a digital enterprise, the leading Global Healthcare Provider turned to Cloudwick to architect and engineer its next generation R&D lab. The CIO wanted to accelerate time-to-discovery by moving the organization’s 20-year-old data center R&D lab from on-premise to AWS so that data scientists could analyze data at scale and develop new products and services faster.

Additionally, the Chief Data Scientist and team had evaluated all available modern analytic platforms and selected Databricks as its next-generation data and analytics platform. The Databricks platform greatly decreased the complexity of managing Spark and also provided the data scientists with the Databricks Notebooks that simplified data discovery and R&D.

Cloudwick provided the company with a business and technology plan to securely migrate the on-premise data to Amazon Web Services (AWS), securing the cluster to meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Protected Health Information (PHI) compliance, and integrating Databricks Spark so its data scientists could run predictive analytics. Spark provides results quickly, allowing the company to reach more precise and accurate answers as well as develop better products and services for patients, doctors and hospitals.

“The challenge for most healthcare data scientists is not Spark because Databricks simplifies implementation, administration and data science with notebooks. Their challenge is how to set up, migrate and manage HIPAA and PHI sensitive data in the cloud,” said Mani Chhabra, Cloudwick CEO. “Cloudwick is one of the few AWS Partners that has the expertise to build, operate and manage Databricks platforms on AWS that meet HIPAA and PHI regulatory compliance.”

The benefits the company now realizes after working with Cloudwick and Databricks include a modern HIPAA and PHI compliant digital business infrastructure on AWS that eliminates the previous on-premises solution. Additionally, with Spark, the organization’s data scientists can rapidly develop new insights, products and services for doctors and hospitals to improve patient care. Working with Cloudwick, this Global Healthcare Provider has successfully transformed its R&D department into a next-generation bimodal digital business, gaining competitive advantage from faster time to new product and service release.
