What is the best way to estimate my monthly AWS fees?
Healthcare Blocks can produce an estimate that includes the compute and storage services required by your organization, as well as the standard backing services that are necessary to support a bare minimum HIPAA-compliant configuration. Please have your technical lead developer or architect start a live chat to request an estimate.
What are the benefits of using Healthcare Blocks to manage my AWS account?
We have extensive experience with AWS specific to healthcare scenarios and have helped many organizations scale from early-stage concepts to successful platforms.
How to determine which Healthcare Blocks service is a better fit for my organization?
Healthcare Ready for AWS is ideal for teams already working with or willing to invest the time and DevOps resources to learn the Amazon Web Services platform. While Healthcare Ready for AWS helps eliminate some of the technical challenges and implementation tasks, DevOps teams typically take on more responsibilities compared to our Cloud Application Platform experience. The primary benefits for organizations include enhanced transparency into their production systems, faster auditing capabilities, and direct access to the various Web consoles in the AWS platform.
Which AWS regions do you support?
Amazon Web Services us-west-2 (Oregon) and us-east-2 (Ohio).
Who signs the Business Associate Agreement (BAA)?
AWS has its own BAA that your organization would need to execute. To obtain a copy for preview, after creating an AWS account, go to the AWS Artifact service. In addition, Healthcare Blocks will sign a BAA with your organization. We have two different versions, depending on your relationship to us, that you can preview (PDF): covered entity or business associate. An e-signable version will be sent to you upon request.
Do you support the Dokku PaaS in Healthcare Ready for AWS?
Absolutely! We've assisted customers with migrations from our Cloud Application Platform to our newer offering without requiring them to change their production configuration and deployment process.
Can you configure my AWS environment so that my DevOps team cannot access any PHI?
Through a combination of strict access controls in your AWS environment and tasks that your DevOps team would need to implement, this solution is achievable. See our Enhanced Security Architecture for details.
