Aetion is a rapidly growing, science driven healthcare analytics company headquartered in New York City.
Aetion provides a leading-edge analytics platform for rapid-cycle analytics of real-world healthcare data that our customers use to generate real-time evidence on the effectiveness, safety, and value of healthcare interventions. With this essential evidence in hand, our customers can make the smart, value-driven decisions needed to transform healthcare.
At a Glance
Aetion practices DevOps - where both systems and software engineers are involved in the day to day management and support of Aetion's platform.
The primary difference in the roles is one of focus - the systems team builds the infrastructure and tooling to support the platform, and the software team builds the Aetion application platform.
Our distributed platform is hosted both in AWS and also on customer premises. We currently use Chef for automation to ensure that a small team of operational staff can easily handle our large and growing estate and use Docker for containerization to ensure consistency across deployment environments.
Our application is mostly Java, including our healthcare analytics engine. Like many places we use MySQL although its role here is mainly for metadata storage. For object storage, we use S3 in the cloud.
With health data in our platform, security is paramount. Our on-premise environments often contain personally identifiable health data so we maintain strict compliance with HIPAA regulations.
