Connectria Achieves Amazon Web Services Healthcare Competency For Third Consecutive Year

ST. LOUIS, March 1, 2018 – Connectria, a global cloud service provider, today announced it has achieved the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Healthcare Competency for the third consecutive year.

“As the first provider to deliver HIPAA Compliant clouds, Connectria continues to be recognized as the proven leader in delivering HIPAA Compliance in AWS,” said Steve Grzybinski, Director of Security, Compliance and Technology.

To achieve the AWS Healthcare Competency, Connectria underwent a thorough audit of its capabilities to deliver HIPAA Compliance for AWS customers. Connectria demonstrated its technical proficiency and proven customer success in building HIPAA Compliant solutions in AWS for healthcare organizations that securely store, process, transmit, and analyze Protected Health Information (PHI) in AWS.

“Connectria once again passed this rigorous test, further validating that our innovative, cloud-based solutions meet the unique requirements when handling PHI in AWS, in accordance with the HIPAA standards,” said Grzybinski.

Connectria will be highlighting its HIPAA compliant solutions from March 5-9, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, during HIMSS18, the largest Healthcare IT conference with over 70,000 attendees.

Connectria will be demonstrating its ability to help clients achieve HIPAA compliance not only in AWS, but also for a wide range of IT environments, including systems running Windows, Linux, IBM i, IBM AIX, VMware or Hyper-V, as well as systems running in Microsoft Azure.
