Strategic partnership in focus: Maximus healthcare expertise and AWS technology
Business-driven technology modernization is increasingly important for governments to effectively and efficiently provide programs and services that meet the evolving health needs of our nation today and still be responsive to the challenges of tomorrow. This can also be particularly challenging to implement as agencies navigate budget constraints, procurement, complex legacy systems, and strict cybersecurity and compliance requirements. Health agencies also face a specific myriad of challenges including the need to securely collect and store highly sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) and personal health information (PHI), protecting it from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
Given the risk of compliance breaches, decreased citizen trust, health agencies increasingly must prioritize robust security measures, including strong access controls, encryption, continuous data monitoring, and regular employee training on cybersecurity best practices.
The powerful combination of trusted healthcare experts and trusted technology
Maximus combines over 40 years of deep expertise in health services alongside our role as a technology service provider to help federal health agencies establish comprehensive digital modernization plans using the right mix of innovative solutions to turn those plans into reality. As an Alliance Partner to the world’s largest cloud provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Maximus can provide federal agencies with AWS expertise and a comprehensive suite of services. This includes everything from cloud migration, modernization, cybersecurity, data analytics and data management, AI and ML, to deployment, ongoing management, and optimization.
In combination with Maximus expertise, AWS enables health agencies to access a scalable and flexible cloud infrastructure that can handle a wide range of workloads, from web and mobile applications to high-performance computing and machine learning. Benefits include improved agility, reduced costs, and increased productivity. Let’s take a closer look at some key benefits of the combination of Maximus healthcare expertise and AWS advanced technology.
Leveraging AWS scalability to respond to evolving population needs
AWS services are designed to scale easily, allowing health agencies to quickly and easily add or remove resources to respond to the shifting demands of evolving citizen populations. Combining this robust capability with Maximus’ expertise, agencies can successfully manage scalability in the cloud without sacrificing performance. With this approach, applications and services can handle increased demand through the use of horizontal scaling, autoscaling, load balancers, caching, serverless computing, performance monitoring, and more.
Ensuring data accessibility, usability, and security
For health agencies, data management and data security are critical to ensuring the integrity of sensitive health information, enabling valuable health insights to improve patient services and the equitable provision of health services. To balance these needs, our experts leverage AWS technology and deep technology expertise to inform the strategic selection of data storage options, data encryption, backup and disaster recovery, data analytics, and robust solutions to manage data access and permissions. Our security-first mindset is a practical complement to AWS innovation that can help agencies align new technology rollouts with increasingly stringent federal cybersecurity mandates.
Supporting new technology adoption with cost-effective innovation
By leveraging AWS, agencies can quickly and easily provision resources, scale up or down as needed, and pay only for what they use. This can help agencies reduce costs, improve efficiency, and focus on core business functions. We work with agencies to manage costs and extract the best possible value from cloud investments, including monitoring resource usage, selecting cost-effective computing and storage options, leveraging automation, using reserved instances and savings plans, and deploying cost optimization tools and cost controls.
A trusted partnership for successful data migrations
Migrating data, systems, applications, and other digital applications can be a complex undertaking, requiring careful planning and execution. We develop comprehensive cloud migration strategies, including identifying which assets can be migrated versus remaining on premises, and build end—to—end rollout plans with agency leadership buy-in. AWS cloud and hybrid cloud options provide agencies with flexible options to best meet their mission objectives and digital modernization goals while prioritizing cost effectiveness, cybersecurity, compliance, and efficiency. Through the latest technology and services, Maximus and AWS are addressing the unique and evolving challenges for both health agencies and the citizens they serve.
Our team of experts are eager to help government agencies leverage the full power of AWS cloud solutions to achieve their mission-critical objectives.
