Healthcare & Life Sciences

Google Cloud supports HIPAA compliance with industry-leading security so you can discover insights for better care, deliver seamless experiences, and collaborate more effectively.


  • Powerful Analytics

    Process petabytes of healthcare data faster with Big Data tools

    Turn massive amounts of genomic, imaging, clinical, or insurance data into health breakthroughs, better care, and more streamlined operations with our Big Data solutions. BigQuery, our fully-managed serverless data warehouse, allows you to quickly find meaningful insights without having to manage infrastructure. Our Cloud Genomics tools are based on years of Google innovation and can process petabytes of data (even in parallel) faster than can be done on premises.

    Our solutions are easily adaptable for multi-cloud or hybrid environments and we have services to help you migrate quickly and securely. Start by contacting us or teaming up with a Google Cloud partner. Or sign up for a free trial with $300 credit to get your projects up and running quickly.

  • Machine Learning & AI

    Machine intelligence for better care

    Medical imaging organizations are using our machine learning solutions to improve patient outcomes, data management, and operational efficiencies. Machine learning isn’t as simple as flipping a switch, but with Google Cloud, you don’t need a huge team to get the most out of your data. Our easy-to-use pre-trained models allow you to automatically classify images and videos, parse content from articles or surveys, and convert audio to text. Or you can build custom models with Cloud Machine Learning Engine and TensorFlow, one of the most popular machine learning libraries among researchers across the globe. With TensorFlow, you can use our proprietary customer ML accelerator, the Tensor Processing Unit, to run and scale your models. On our production AI workloads that utilize neural network interference, the TPU is 15–30X faster than contemporary GPUs or CPUs.

    If you have high-impact machine learning projects, you can partner directly with Google Cloud ML experts at the Advanced Solutions Lab.

  • Connected Experiences

    Data interoperability powers new digital experiences

    As patient expectations for seamless care increases, interoperability of data sources is crucial. Our FHIR-ready APIs can link your legacy data with new technology, powering digital experiences like remote device monitoring, patient mobile apps, and fitness devices.

    “Google Cloud’s commitment to support the ongoing activities of the FHIR community will help advance our goal of global health data interoperability. The future of health computing is clearly in the cloud, and our joint effort will serve to accelerate this transition.”

    Grahame Grieve, Principal and FHIR Product Lead, Health Intersections

  • Collaboration & Mobility

    Collaborate with colleagues, connect with patients

    Stay connected to patients and colleagues — whether they are just across the hall or on the other side of the world — with G Suite, our cloud-based productivity tools. G Suite supports HIPAA compliance and allows your doctors and staff to exchange confidential notes with Drive, collaborate on research with Docs, or even conduct secured telemedicine sessions with patients on Hangouts Meet.

    Shared clinical Chrome workstations equipped with G Suite make it easy for employees to log in and out of secured environments and include endpoint-to-endpoint management from a centralized location.

We take our responsibility to protect patient data very seriously. The Google Cloud Platform provides significant advantages in data security over on-premises systems and helps us achieve HIPAA compliance.

Michael Ames, Associate Director for Health Data Compass and Director of Enterprise Architecture, CCPM


We do our part to help you protect patient data by offering comprehensive identity management, network security, and threat detection and response capabilities to protect your business against current and future threats. To earn your trust, we certify Google Cloud Platform and G Suite against the most rigorous global security and privacy standards like ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018, and make certain products available under applicable HIPAA business associate agreements.
