Connectria Hosting selected for a HIPAA Hosting Contract by Linguamatics
St. Louis, MO (August 2, 2012) - Companies outside the US often times have issues with latency when running software for US-based customers. Complying with regulations within the healthcare industry can prove to be a challenge as well.
These are some of the reasons why Linguamatics, a UK-based world leader in text-mining software has selected Connectria Hosting for HIPAA Compliant hosting. A hosting provider with deep expertise in the US healthcare regulations was key in the decision. Connectria was able to provide Linguamatics with the industry's most comprehensive HIPAA support plan in addition to a business associate agreement (BAA), as it does for many of its current customers. Having the application hosted in the US helped resolve the latency issues, providing a higher quality of service for users of the application. The easily scalable solution and short-term contract enabled Linguamatics to conduct some initial testing prior to moving its full environment to a hosted solution.
