Minneapolis, MN – 

June 11, 2024 — Marani Health today announced that it has been selected for a new global program from Amazon Web Services (AWS), supporting organizations that are developing solutions to advance health equity.  Participation in the selective program will advance Marani Health’s efforts to reduce maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality while promoting access to care for women living in maternity deserts.   

Marani Health intends to use computing credits and technical expertise from AWS to enhance its artificial intelligence models with the goal of giving care teams better data, thereby allowing for more timely interventions and improved outcomes. The artificial intelligence models interpret data acquired from user-friendly, non-invasive wearable medical devices that can be used at home under the remote supervision of a patient’s licensed care team.  

Through the Health Equity Program, AWS offers AWS credits and customized technical expertise to selected organizations around the world that want to use AWS services to improve health outcomes and health equity in any of the following areas: 1) increasing access to health services for underserved communities; 2) addressing social determinants of health; and 3) leveraging data to promote more equitable and inclusive systems of care.  

“AWS believes individual health outcomes should not depend on socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or neighborhood, “said Maggie Carter, Global Lead, Social Impact at AWS. “Cloud technology can be a force multiplier when it comes to addressing the inequities in global health that have been amplified by the pandemic. Through this program, we look forward to helping Marani Health and other organizations worldwide use AWS to advance health equity and improve health outcomes.”  

“It is imperative that the AI revolution be directed towards solving society’s greatest health inequities,” said Jim Tafur, Chief Technology Officer at Marani Health. “With AWS’s support, we are poised to harness the incredible power of AI to improve care outcomes, bridge access gaps, reduce unnecessary costs and disparities in care, and improve patient and provider satisfaction. We thank AWS for their selection and look forward to advancing our goal of improving maternity and postpartum care in the U.S.”
