CloudTweaks: ClearDATA Brings Quality Services For Health Care To The Cloud

Technology has gone to great lengths to open up the door for new and exciting devices and software of all types and functions. One of the areas that technology has made the most impact is healthcare, with different devices and information resulting directly from tech advances saving lives each and every day.
However, one of the areas that has been neglected up to this point is a service that provides not only effective cloud solutions for healthcare providers, but also one that complies with the different strictures laid down by HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
In this area, ClearDATA truly appears to be at the top of the pile.
ClearDATA is a cloud-computing startup whose primary goal is to move medical information and applications to the cloud, which would allow users to access it over a private and secure internet connection. ClearDATA has raised over $14 million in series-B funding from firms, Norwest Venture Partners and Excel Venture Management.
“The IT demands on healthcare organizations are greater than ever, and they will continue to grow as Big Data and analytics take hold in the industry,” says Chris Bowen, CPO of ClearDATA.“ClearDATA is addressing major issues in the healthcare industry by improving the manageability and accessibility of patient information. Organizations can now analyze vast amounts of data from multiple sources, resulting in an improvement in patient health.”
HIPAA Compliant Cloud Hosting
ClearDATA is the only provider of cloud hosting that is 100 percent dedicated to the healthcare industry. This hosting covers a wide variety of different areas, including applications, infrastructure, servers and data storage, to name a few.
All hosting is HIPAA compliant, shielding patients from unauthorized access. ClearDATA’s service offers a guaranteed 100-percent uptime, 24/7 systems and network monitoring and end-to-end security, all of which will provide excellent protection, without sacrificing speed and quality.
Backup and Disaster Recovery
Storage and access are not the only services provided by ClearDATA. Protection of said data from loss or breach is just as important as having a place to store it. ClearDATA provides both Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO), both of which can be customized to fit your needs perfectly.
Without a clear cloud solution, such as what is found with ClearDATA, the healthcare industry would be unable to take advantage of all the positive aspects of this type of access. ClearDATA aims to provide these services, to any healthcare company, regardless of size.
