ST. LOUIS, Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Louis-based Connectria Hosting, a world leader in HIPAA Compliant Managed Hosting and founder of the No Jerks Allowed® movement, today announced it achieved the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Healthcare Competency.
The AWS Competency Program is designed to highlight members of the AWS Partner Network who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas. By attaining an AWS Healthcare Competency, Connectria has demonstrated technical readiness and success in helping healthcare organizations achieve and maintain HIPAA/HITECH compliance on AWS.
HIPAA/HITECH legislation regulates how healthcare organizations securely handle patient information, also known as protected health information (PHI). Any breach in protecting patient information can result in significant fines and loss of business. As more healthcare organizations turn to the AWS Cloud for processing and storing PHI, it is critical that they choose a managed service provider with the necessary HIPAA/HITECH compliance expertise.
Connectria's HIPAA Compliant Managed Services on AWS provides a comprehensive suite of security and support features designed to address HIPAA/HITECH standards, including setup of an AWS environment to meet HIPAA compliance needs, necessary levels of encryption within AWS and ongoing 24/7 managed services to ensure AWS environments remain HIPAA compliant.
"Connectria is a pioneer in HIPAA/HITECH compliant hosting," noted Rich Waidmann, President and CEO. "We were the first company to deliver HIPAA Compliant Hosting in 2007 as well as one of the first companies to voluntarily sign Business Associate Agreements before it became a requirement. With the rapid growth of our Managed Services on AWS, extending our HIPAA Compliant hosting expertise to the AWS Cloud was a natural progression. We are happy to have achieved our AWS Healthcare Competency and look forward to helping organizations with compliance solutions on AWS."
