ClearDATA Launches Containers-as-a-Service Solution to Securely Host Apps with Patient Health Information

ClearDATA has launched its fully-managed Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution – to help health IT and DevOps teams “quickly and securely” deploy individual applications in a HIPAA-compliant cloud.

To assist healthcare organizations and digital health companies, especially when protected health information is at stake, ClearDATA – an AWS Healthcare Competency and Public Sector Partner – works with Amazon ECS to provide a secured container management resource that offers an isolated, HIPAA-compliant environment for building, testing and running individual applications.

Docker Containers would solve the problem of conflicting software by creating an entire runtime environment (code, runtime, system tools, system libraries) in one binary artifact, so the differences between environments are negligible. This would guarantee that software runs consistently, regardless of the environment in which it is deployed – creating the agility, speed and security healthcare companies are searching for.

ClearDATA will publicly launch CaaS at HIMSS17, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society 2017 Annual Conference & Exhibition (Feb. 19-23, 2017 in Orlando, Florida) and will provide in-booth demonstrations throughout the event.
