Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
OnRamp, a leading HIPAA compliant hosting provider with data center facilities in Texas and North Carolina, announced today its sponsorship of The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Fall Forum, taking place September 7-9th in Palm Desert, California. The forum will bring together the nation’s leading experts to discuss how to successfully integrate telecommunications technologies into the care and treatment of patients suffering from chronic diseases. OnRamp will attend this event to showcase the company’s ability to assist telemedicine and mobile health businesses in the delivery of these innovative technologies by leveraging OnRamp’s HIPAA compliant hosting solutions which help address the privacy and security concerns involved in the creation, storage and transmission of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
The three-day event will consist of two full days of programs related to telehealth in chronic care, a full-day forum focused on telemedicine opportunities in China and an executive leadership retreat for CEO's of the world's leading healthcare technology companies and institutions. With a tradeshow floor bringing together over fifty telemedicine, telehealth and mHealth product and service providers, OnRamp will join these companies to demonstrate the benefits of utilizing OnRamp’s suite of data center services to maintain IT operations in compliance with HIPAA. Hosted in the redundant, reliable and secure infrastructure of OnRamp’s enterprise-class data center facilities, OnRamp’s HIPAA compliant hosting solutions provide a secure environment that comprehensively ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of critical patient data.
“The support we show, not only in the delivery of high security and hybrid hosting solutions, but in the relationships we form with healthcare industry clients to cooperatively maintain HIPAA compliance, sets us apart from other providers and makes OnRamp a strong candidate for partnerships with telemedicine and mHealth providers attending the ATA Fall Forum,” stated OnRamp Founder Chad Kissinger. “To further assist our clients, we have developed an online, HIPAA Risk Management Tool, which is designed to assist customers in analyzing and managing their HIPAA compliance risk associated with their IT infrastructure hosted at OnRamp. Guiding users through our ‘3-Step HIPAA Risk Management’ process we systematically analyze the services they can and should receive from OnRamp, help them to identify and flag vulnerabilities, suggest remedial steps, and document a plan for addressing those vulnerabilities when collaboratively working with OnRamp to reasonably and appropriately protect ePHI.”
Live demonstrations of OnRamp’s HIPAA Risk Management Tool will be conducted from the OnRamp Booth #307, where OnRamp’s Team of experts will be onsite to discuss the advantages of the company’s hybrid hosting solutions when it comes to securing sensitive data.
