Microsoft announced that Epic electronic health record customers, starting with Mount Sinai Healthcare System in New York City, will be able to use Azure Large Instances to handle up to 50 million database accesses per second. Mount Sinai has already migrated many of its workloads to Azure.

The change is part of a broader emphasis by Microsoft on supporting scalability and cost savings for healthcare organizations. Microsoft aims to enhance agility and reduce risk with a cloud first strategy.

"We are very excited about this move as it further enables digital transformation, accelerates artificial intelligence (AI) and innovation, provides scalability and flexibility, and reduces upfront infrastructure costs, ultimately leading to improved care and discovery as well as streamlined operations,” stated Kristin Myers, executive vice president, chief digital and information officer, and dean for digital and information technology at Mount Sinai.
