Seqster PDM Inc., San Diego, announces the release of Seqster Platform v7.1 on the Microsoft Azure cloud at the J.P. Morgan 39th Annual Healthcare Conference. Seqster is a comprehensive interoperability platform for accessing secure, longitudinal real-world data from electronic health records (EHR), DNA, and fitness wearables for healthcare enterprises.

“With the latest release of the Seqster platform, we provide end-to-end patient data delivery on Microsoft Azure so that our enterprise clients can transition from existing outdated retrieval methods to real-time, structured EHR data retrieval,” says Ardy Arianpour, Seqster’s CEO and co-founder. “Seqster pioneered person-centric interoperability and now offers a turn-key multi-cloud solution driven by and for our pharma clients.”

By incorporating Azure, along with Kubernetes and Istio, Seqster is able to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of its app containers without “DevOps” intervention while providing TLS encryption for data in transit between all resources in the platform along with enhanced logging for observability and policy adherence.

“Microsoft welcomes Seqster into the Azure family of products for patient-centric healthcare and interoperability,” says Trent Norris, Microsoft’s director of life sciences. “By leveraging Azure Key Vault, Storage Containers, and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Seqster has created a secure, scalable platform for enterprise-class medical data retrieval, visualization, and integration for healthcare providers, payers, pharma, and medical researchers.”

New Features of Seqster 7.1 on Microsoft Azure include:

  • Enhanced security using Azure Key Vault and Istio Service Mesh 
  • High availability cluster with redundancy across availability zones 
  • Customizable user interface for white label branding 
  • Single and Multi-Tenant options 
  • Massively scalable object storage with Azure Blob Storage for EHR documents, Medical Images, and DNA sequence files 
  • Single-Sign-On integration with Oauth2 Authentication 
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant for Clinical Trial data handling

Seqster runs on a HIPAA and HITRUST CSF certified platform, providing enterprise clients with a tightly controlled environment with 24x7x365 operational monitoring and support.
