You Can be Compliant in an Azure Cloud

HIPAA Compliant Cloud Solutions for Microsoft Azure

Connectria helps healthcare organizations maintain compliance with HIPAA/HITECH security standards for the storage of Protected Health Information (PHI), whether their workloads are housed in one of our private, hosted clouds or in a public cloud like Azure.

If you’re a SaaS software developer serving the healthcare industry, we can even help you leverage all that Azure has to offer with HIPAA and HITECH compliant cloud-based solutions for your customers as well.

 

Comprehensive Compliance Across Multiple Environments

These days, multiple cloud environments are the norm, not the exception. We can help you choose the cloud that’s right for each workload and then create a HIPAA/HITECH compliance solution that addresses the unique needs of each environment and workload. We can even help you integrate your cloud environments to streamline cloud management and improve operations.

Compliant Public Clouds

We can help you leverage the scalability of Azure, without compromising security and compliance. We’ll configure your Azure cloud environment for HIPAA and HITECH and then migrate your workloads. Once in the cloud, we can also help you manage your Azure environment for potential compliance issues as well as performance and cost-optimization.

Private Hosted Clouds

For organizations that require the highest levels of performance, we offer dedicated cloud-based IT resources housed in one of our SOC 2 certified data centers. We can host your X86 workloads in a VMware vSphere environment or on IBM i and IBM AIX hardware, making it easy to securely migrate even legacy workloads to the cloud while minimizing disruptions to your business.

Legacy Environments

We can host your X86 workloads in a VMware vSphere environment or on IBM i and IBM AIX hardware, making it easy to securely migrate even legacy workloads to the cloud while minimizing disruptions to your business. If you’re not ready to migrate an application to the cloud, our remote management services can help you maintain compliance on-premises.

HyperCare

Healthcare IT environments require a level of care that goes above and beyond the norm. HyperCare includes a comprehensive set of tools and processes backed by a highly skilled team of engineers that is 100% focused on ensuring the security, reliability, and performance of your systems. With TRiA, our state-of-the-art cloud management platform, you’ll also have full visibility into compliance across all of your cloud environments, so you’ll be able to see how your systems – and our support engineers – are performing.

On-Demand Access to Experts
Connectria’s HIPAA Compliance solutions come with access to our HIPAA Compliance Team. We’ll help you stay up-to-date on compliance regulations, work with your legal team, or just answer any questions you might have. Because transparency is vital to compliance, we’ll also keep you informed on what we’re doing to ensure the compliance and security of your systems and data.

No-Hassel Business Associate Agreements
We enter into a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) directly with each of our customers, and our staff will assist you in getting a signed BAA with Microsoft as well.

Thorough Audit Preparation
Ensuring compliance is a team effort, and our compliance experts are there to help you conduct your own annual HIPPA/HITECH compliance assessments. In the event you get audited, we can also help you proactively prepare, minimizing the stress on your team, protecting your productivity, and helping you ensure a successful outcome.

Independently Validated for Compliance
Our world-class data centers and hosting services undergo independent 3rd party assessments to validate our 100% HIPAA/HITECH compliance.
