Scalability and Cost Savings with Epic Migration to AWS

Epic requires large capital investments in hardware and management resources to keep it running smoothly. In addition, Epic needs to be continually updated, which can cause issues when planning for server capacity.

AWS provides an affordable, near-limitless supply of storage and compute resources that hospitals can spin up and spin down on demand. Running Epic on AWS allows healthcare organizations to reduce ongoing management costs and complexity, allowing them to focus more on healthcare initiatives instead of IT.

Learn how you can reduce costs and downtime, while simplifying IT management.



The Benefits of Epic on AWS:

Max Agility-svg (1)

Operational Resilience

Traditionally, when ransomware strikes, hospitals are forced to shut systems down, including disaster recovery environments. This can have devastating consequences for clinical operations. With our ransomware solution for Epic, hosted on AWS, hospitals can access a read-only version of EHR. Continue serving patients and minimize disruption.

Interoperability-svg (1)

Stop Guessing Capacity

For Epic, performance and optimization require upgrades to hardware every 3-5 years, and can create huge hurdles if not planned perfectly. Unplanned purchases around year 3 are often inevitable, resulting in unexpected capital investments. With Epic on AWS, this struggle goes away. With AWS's Op-Ex model, you can align capacity with demand and only pay for what you use.

Reduced Cost-svg (1)

Save Money

Reduce costs associated with data center management and only pay for what you use. In addition, save money by moving ancillary functions to AWS, such as Self Service Dev/Test environments, Pilot-light DR systems, and Training Resources. Learn more here.

Better Disaster Recovery

Epic is typically accompanied by 20-35 co-traveler applications, and the entire Epic ecosystem needs to be available in a disaster, otherwise clinicians will work at reduced efficiency. Epic DR is complex, typically requiring a second data center location or colo that has to be managed and maintained. But with Epic on AWS, you can spread your EHR across 6+ data centers in a matter of days.


Simplify Cybersecurity

Securing Epic requires both securing the physical premises and hardware, as well as securing the network and applications. This requires organizations to hire multiple security personnel and invest in on-premise and software solutions. With Epic on AWS, you can reduce your security burden, as all of the physical security falls on AWS to manage.

Focus on Healthcare, Not IT

Hospitals invest millions, even billions, per year on their IT. This diverts valuable resources away from the core business mission of providing care. What if you could get out of the data center business and focus on healthcare? With Epic on AWS, you can free yourself from data center management.
