Our goals are ambitious, and we are collaborating with digital leaders like AWS to reach our goals at speed and scale that will transform Baxter into a company driven by data and insights.

Baxter extended its multi-year strategic partnership with AWS as part of the company-wide commitment to further increase its usage of the cloud as a core aspect of its technological infrastructure. The businesses have been working together for several years to migrate Baxter’s physical data centers to the cloud, which is virtually complete.

Baxter is using AWS’s broad and deep portfolio of cloud services to deliver new insights and digital health solutions for the millions of patients and caregivers that use their leading portfolio of medical products.

Baxter’s digital transformation is helping the company unlock the potential of healthcare data and develop a more personalized approach to care, using the unmatched reliability and proven security of one of the world’s leading cloud providers. We look forward to continuing our work with Baxter as the company transforms itself in the cloud, helping drive improved outcomes for patients and new tools for caregivers that improve the quality of care.

Baxter’s DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager, an innovative software solution that eliminates unnecessary medication mistakes from dosage preparation in the pharmacy through delivery at the patient’s bedside, also benefits from the cloud transformation. 

DoseEdge interfaces seamlessly with a hospital’s pharmacy information system to automate the routing, preparation, inspection, tracking, and reporting of IV and oral liquid doses. Although the technology is currently in use in more than 500 hospitals throughout the United States, Baxter’s cloud transformation allows for faster growth into new markets while maintaining local data protection and privacy requirements.

Apart from this, Baxter also benefits from cloud technology concerning supply chain resilience and employee digital training.
