The healthcare cloud computing market size is expected to grow from $44.15 billion USD in 2023 to $75.41 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 11.30 percent. Organizations at the forefront of this growth are navigating transformative paths in the cloud.
As an information technology company that provides risk and quality solutions to healthcare payers and providers, Talix (which was acquired by Edifecs in 2021) faced the challenge of migrating its SaaS platform from on-premises to Amazon Web Services (AWS). This blog will explore the journey undertaken by Talix and the solutions provided by nClouds, an AWS Premier Tier Services Partner.
Talix recognized the need to accelerate new customer onboarding without disrupting its existing operations. With a focus on value-based care, Talix aimed to leverage the managed services model of AWS to enhance performance efficiency while adhering to strict regulatory compliance standards, including HIPAA and HITRUST guidelines.
The challenge was to migrate a complex SaaS platform seamlessly and securely to AWS, ensuring minimal disruption and optimal performance.
Solution with AWS and nClouds
To address Talix’s migration challenge, nClouds—known for its expertise in AWS migration and DevOps—stepped in. The first step involved a comprehensive analysis of Talix’s existing on-premises infrastructure. Following best practices, nClouds and Talix collaborated to establish mutually agreed-upon timeframes to minimize disruption during the migration process.
The migration itself was a meticulous process, with the nClouds team leveraging various AWS services, including Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store, and more. HashiCorp Terraform, an infrastructure-as-code tool, also played a crucial role in creating, updating, and versioning Talix’s AWS infrastructure.
Business Benefits for Talix
The collaboration between Talix and nClouds resulted in a streamlined AWS infrastructure optimized for cost, performance efficiency, regulatory compliance, and security. The key benefits include the following:
- Enhanced Performance Efficiency: The implemented resilient architecture demonstrated its capability to recover from failures seamlessly, avoiding any impact on customers. Additionally, the integration of continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) within the deployment pipeline streamlined processes, while Amazon CloudWatch monitoring facilitated individual tenant performance optimization without affecting others.
- Cost Optimization: Talix realized significant cost benefits with Amazon S3 Intelligent-Tiering for optimized storage costs. Also, the adoption of Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances contributed to front-end cost efficiency.
- Regulatory Compliance and Security: Aligning with industry standards, Talix’s migration to AWS under nClouds’ guidance adhered to HIPAA and HITRUST compliance guidelines. The security measures implemented encompassed every layer, establishing robust tenant isolation boundaries.
The successful migration of Talix’s SaaS platform to AWS, orchestrated by nClouds, showcases the power of strategic collaboration in the healthcare technology sector. As cloud adoption in the healthcare industry continues to grow, the streamlined AWS infrastructure positions companies to innovate, comply with regulations, and scale their operations seamlessly.
