Connectria Hosting Selected by EveryChild Texas for Dedicated and HIPAA Compliant Hosting Services

ST. LOUIS, MO (August 6, 2012) - Connectria Hosting announced that it has been awarded a HIPAA managed hosting contract with EveryChild Texas. Everychild Texas was looking for a reputable hosting company who can provide a high level of data security to meet new HIPAA compliance requirements set by the state of Texas. Connectria's HIPAA plan provides a comprehensive set of features and includes data encryption for both Data In Transit and Data at Rest- an SSL certificate for users accessing the website as well as a VPN (virtual private network) connection for users directly accessing the server. Although this type of service costs a bit more than a standard managed hosting plan, Everychild Texas is able to avoid potential hefty penalties other healthcare institutions have incurred for not complying with regulations.

Connectria was able to reduce Everychild Texas' costs by providing highly flexible database administration services and a non-profit discount.

With Connectria's services running the IT infrastructure, EveryChild Texas is able to utilize its database to provide children with developmental disabilities an alternative to institutional placement, a win-win for both parties.

About EveryChild Texas
Children across the country are living in congregate care facilities like nursing homes, public and private institutions designated for persons with developmental disabilities, and group homes. In Texas alone 1600 children and young adults with disabilities under the age of 22 live in such facilities. The reasons children are placed in facilities are varied and complex. When parents don't have the help they need to care for their children at home, the only option that has been available has been placement in an institution. Various states have built systems that are more or less successful at offering support to families. Our work is targeted at the system in Texas, but we seek to use what has worked elsewhere and we offer to share what has worked in Texas.

Our Organization: EveryChild, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization incorporated in Texas 2000. EveryChild has been generously supported by contracts with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and numerous grants from charitable foundations as well as private donations.
