Cloud Security and Performance Gives Peace of Mind to Clinical Data Exchange

Cloud Security and Performance Gives Peace of Mind to Clinical Data Exchange
March 14, 2017 / Evolve IP

The healthcare industry is experiencing rapid growth into cloud-based technologies. While those charged with collecting and protecting PHI in their systems have been slow adopters of the cloud relative to other industries, the operational and financial benefits have become evident. In fact, in Evolve IP’s 2016 Cloud Adoption Survey 88% of healthcare industry respondents acknowledge that cloud technologies are the future model for IT.  While many are just embarking on their cloud strategy, Evolve IP has been helping customers with HIPAA compliance requirements experience the benefits of the cloud for more than 10 years. One of those customers, Halfpenny Technologies, recently sat with Evolve IP in an interview to explain why the cloud computing model is important from multiple perspectives including operational stability, business continuity strength, and infrastructure flexibility. All of these attributes contribute to support the long-term growth of their business. View the video testimonial from Co-founder and CTO of Halfpenny Technologies, Charles Halfpenny.

Excerpt from conversation with Charles Halfpenny.

“Halfpenny Technologies is a leading provider of Clinical Data Exchange. We service clients ranging from health plans, hospitals, clinical laboratories and pharmacies. Clinical Data Exchange involves the acquisition and transport of various elements of a patient’s medical record. Clinical Data Exchange does involve Protected Health Information (PHI).When we were looking to move our production systems to an infrastructure provider a number of factors came into play…security scalability, reliability, as well as performance. It was key that any vendor we chose and the datacenter that they utilize were all HIPAA compliant. Choosing Evolve IP and their commitment to security and the healthcare made that easy decision.We are a cutting edge organization and that’s where we want to keep our focus. The infrastructure is very important but we wanted to look for a partner that had the depth of expertise that they could work through the challenges of geographic redundancy, of local redundancy, of ongoing maintenance, and of upgrades. From a standpoint of stability, we’re very happy with the capabilities that Evolve IP brings, in terms of combining disaster recovery, geographic diversity, along with local redundancy. The combination of Nimble Storage technologies, VMware as well as the monitoring services that Evolve IP provides…it really lets us sleep at night.”
