AWS Launches Cloud Template for NIH-Funded Electronic Data Capture App

ExecutiveBiz - AWS Launches Cloud Template for NIH-Funded Electronic Data Capture App

Amazon Web Services has made its cloud automation templates available for use with a National Institutes of Health-funded web application designed to help users build and manage online surveys and databases.


Nonprofit organizations can now use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy the Research Electronic Data Capture tool in the cloud, the company said Thursday.


The templates support deployment of REDCap software on AWS infrastructure within 20 minutes, allowing researchers to operate REDCap without specialized information technology know-how.


CloudFormation works to deploy REDCap in a three-tiered virtual private cloud, with an environment that allows for automatic scaling based on corresponding load. More than 3K organizations use the application, AWS noted.


The tool is also compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
