MediPortal, a software company providing physicians and practices with a suite of patient centric cloud based tools, has selected Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric platform to orchestrate private connectivity between its customers’ medical sites, patients, and payors.
MediPortal needed a cloud connectivity solution that could solve major pain points associated with adding new customers to its Patient Engagement Suite. Leveraging Pureport to privately connect customers to the Patient Engagnement Suite supports aggressive company growth plans and uses company resources more effectively.
“MediPortal’s goal is to interconnect as many patients, healthcare providers, and payors as possible,” said Edwin Vargas, CIO of MediPortal. “As our customer base grew, we began experiencing a variety of growing pains including delays in customer onboarding due in part to IP address conflicts between customer locations.”
MediPortal hosts its SaaS-based platform in Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), and requires its customers to create a connection from their facility to MediPortal’s AWS environment. Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric platform enables organizations to “securely” deploy multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-site connections “within minutes” without the need for additional hardware or infrastructure. Now, MediPortal can orchestrate private connectivity between hospitals, physician sites, and its AWS Cloud environment, “in just minutes,” through Pureport’s self-service console.
Pureport’s platform includes a full-mesh backbone and a distributed cloud router allowing MediPortal customers to simply connect through a VPN, via an IPsec tunnel from their remote site to one of Pureport’s regional gateways, and then to AWS via Direct Connect. This would deliver faster performance at the edge, and eliminate the need to provision a private line from a carrier.
MediPortal stated it was able to provision its first customer’s connection “within ten minutes,” and onboard this customer to their network “in less than three hours.” This network was connected without the need for custom appliances and leveraged MediPortal’s existing Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
“After seeing demonstrations of many cloud connectivity solutions in the marketplace, only Pureport’s platform was able to onboard new customers in minutes, which included resolving any IP conflicts,” added Mr. Vargas. “Now, with Pureport our customers are able to privately connect to AWS through Direct Connect, which allows us to lower egress costs.”
Pureport’s Multicloud Fabric orchestrates private connectivity to AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and IBM Cloud.
“Pureport is disrupting the way companies connect to the cloud,” said Rich Lee, CEO of Pureport. “Our platform allows companies of all sizes to create private connectivity in just minutes, compared to the weeks and in many cases months, it takes to leverage a carrier’s cloud onramp solution. Pureport’s self-service Console, paired with our distributed multicloud router, enables MediPortal to establish and manage private connections to the cloud in a way that is now much faster, easier, more cost-effective, and doesn’t require new equipment or deep networking experience.”
