Connectria Delivers HIPAA Compliance For Microsoft Azure

ST. LOUIS, MO. (December 5, 2016) – Connectria Hosting, a world leader in HIPAA Compliant Managed Hosting, today announced the ability for customers to run HIPAA Compliant environments in Microsoft Azure. Connectria pioneered HIPAA Compliant Managed Hosting in 2007 by hosting a large HIPAA Compliant Electronic Medical Records (EMR) environment for the State of Maine. Since then, Connectria has supported thousands of HIPAA Compliant environments in Connectria’s world-class Data Centers for healthcare organizations of all sizes.

With the addition of Connectria’s HIPAA Compliance for Microsoft Azure, customers can choose the cloud environment and technology stack that’s right for them, backed by Connectria’s HIPAA/HITECH-compliance experts and extensive Managed Services. Connectria’s Managed Services includes a comprehensive suite of security and support features designed to specifically address the HIPAA and HITECH standards, including the appropriate methods of encryption within each cloud environment.

“Connectria has supported customers in Microsoft Azure for the past two years,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “We’re excited to now enable customers to host HIPAA Compliant environments in Azure. Our extensive background in HIPAA Compliance, combined with our close collaboration with Microsoft, will help ensure that healthcare providers and healthcare software companies can meet their HIPAA requirements when they store electronic Protected Health Information (PHI and/or ePHI) in the Azure cloud.
