Project Hosts, Inc. is announcing their Microsoft Partner Success Story, “Project Hosts delivers turnkey security and compliance on Microsoft Azure for healthcare companies.” This story highlights the cloud adoption barriers for healthcare organizations, and how Project Hosts removes those barriers by providing a simple solution.
A leading provider of medical services and products was seeking a Cloud Service Provider with proven Azure expertise to help it achieve and maintain security and compliance while developing its new global home health monitoring solution. The company’s goal was to develop the application in a consolidated cloud environment, which meant that this environment needed to be secure, HIPAA compliant, and HITRUST certified. Since this company was designing its cloud-based monitoring service as a PaaS solution, monitoring sign ins and access to the various PaaS tools and services on Microsoft Azure was imperative because this service dealt with Protected Health Information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII)—two types of data that healthcare organizations are required by law to keep secure. On top of that, the company also needed to maintain some of the servers on premises, which further complicated the design and architecture of the deployment.
To address these complex challenges and meet the mandated requirements, the company engaged Project Hosts to serve as an extension of its IT department. This allowed the medical provider to allocate more resources toward developing its innovative remote health service, which included making adaptations to its medical devices and software applications.
By working with Project Hosts, the otherwise convoluted and time-consuming process for achieving compliance with healthcare information security standards was dramatically streamlined, allowing the medical provider to focus on mission-critical development tasks through its digital transformation—leaving the provisioning, continuous monitoring, and ongoing compliance to Project Hosts.
