Data backup provider Computer Consulting Service and electronic health record vendor SOAPware have partnered to provide increased information security for their EHR clients. The partnership will provide current SOAPware EHR customers optional remote data backup services, available through monthly subscription.
SOAPware officials believe the provision of an optional cloud-based backup service will alleviate a large burden from current clients by allowing them to meet HIPAA and Meaningful Use compliance more easily. The company ranks in the top 2% for Meaningful Use attestations.
The decision to partner with CCS to provide clients with a backup system follows an exhaustive search to offer more ideal approaches toward accomplishing optimal data backup and disaster recovery services. SOAPware president Randall Oates, M.D. states that, “It is our mission to offer practical and affordable solutions that will be consistent with current and emerging regulations.” CCS is a proven player in their industry with extensive data storage sites in the Los Angeles and Boston areas.
“Safeguarding PHI by helping medical practices achieve legislative compliance is our top priority,” states CCS founder Shaun Huffman. The CCS cloud-based data backup solution utilizes the same top-level encryption employed by major financial institutions for online banking, storing client data in several SAS 70 certified, redundant Tier 4 data centers across the United States. The new service will also offer customers the unique option of checking backup status on-site or remotely over a secure web browser, eliminating some of the more inconvenient constraints associated with traditional data backup.
