As companies in most verticals become more aware of the scalability, flexibility, security, backup and recovery capabilities of cloud computing, they are migrating to the cloud in growing numbers. The medical device industry is slow to migrate in comparison to other healthcare sectors, however, the aforementioned benefits outweigh the risks and experienced cloud solution providers (CSPs) are setting healthcare IT decision maker’s minds at ease.
Advanced cloud-based systems are emerging, providing great value to providers, payers and medical device companies. These cloud-based services enable remote access to data and storage, allowing patients to remain in the comfort of their own home as doctors are able to monitor their patient’s data remotely.
Security and privacy concerns are not always remedied by strict regulatory compliance alone, as provider, payer and medical device companies are still experiencing breaches daily. Many of the leading infrastructure companies only cover a small percentage of the necessary security controls to reach full compliance at the application level. An experienced CSP, such as Project Hosts, not only provides the infrastructure level expertise of Microsoft Azure, but adds the Platform as a Service (PaaS) and often times, Software as a Service (SaaS) level compliance for companies seeking a secure and compliant cloud environment.
Project Hosts’ Healthcare Compliant Security Envelopes on Microsoft Azure ensures secure and compliant transmission of information and data between home health devices and the doctors who monitor, share, and respond to the information collected. These Security Envelopes are both HIPAA compliant and HITRUST certified, removing the burden of implementing and managing security and compliance, allowing medical device companies to concentrate on mission critical projects and innovation.
Project Hosts is offering medical device companies a proof of concept (POC), in our HIPAA compliant and HITRUST certifies Healthcare Cloud on Microsoft Azure. Click here for more details.
