hc1, in partnership with Quest Diagnostics, is featured in a new education and thought leadership site from AWS.  

Launched to fill the gap left by the cancellation of the HIMSS20 Conference due to COVID-19,  the AWS at HIMSS20 Web Experience delivers education and thought leadership to help transform global health in the midst of this pandemic.  

Unlocking Precision Medicine in the Cloud” presenters, Zach Berg (hc1) and Erin Monteverdi (Quest Diagnostics), discuss how lab data can lead the way to value-based care. The presentation dives into a problem faced by many labs, the massive costs associated with wasteful spending contributed by low-value care. The team offers a visual explanation of how Quest Lab Stewardship® powered by hc1 uses AWS to help identify unnecessary testing in order to reduce wasteful spending. 

The AWS at HIMSS20 Web Experience currently features 20+ hours of digital, on-demand content originally developed for HIMSS20 and updated in places with COVID-19 relevant material. The sessions are led by AWS APN partners alongside experts who will highlight their ability to create value by providing solutions to some of healthcare’s biggest challenges. 

In 2016, hc1 achieved AWS Partner Network Healthcare Competency status, one of the first within the AWS partner ecosystem to achieve this level of recognition. As both an AWS Healthcare Competency and Advanced Technology Partner, hc1 provides the highest level of architecture quality, scalability, and reliability to manage enterprise workloads. By leveraging AWS services through hc1, laboratories, and health systems gain a cloud platform optimized for performance, scalability, and security—essential elements to a successful value-based care delivery model.
