Advomas, a Michigan-based healthcare insurance company, has selected Online Tech for delivering HITECH and HIPAA compliant cloud hosting services. Advomas was looking for a partner with extensive knowledge of HITECH & HIPAA security standards. After vetting numerous data hosting partners to relocate its existing data center, Advomas selected Online Tech.
Advomas is moving its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud by the beginning of the third quarter of this year with redundancy locations in both Michigan and Indiana. This is one of many steps Advomas has completed to ensure compliance with state and federal laws surrounding patient health information and privacy. As Advomas continues to partner with providers and health plans on a national level, having the highest level of security around patient health information is at the top of its priority list.
“Our core business model is to help people,” said Jennifer Knight, president of Advomas. “Our clients entrust their patients to us to secure the highest source of payment on the patient’s behalf. We chose a partner with a strong reputation that we knew we could trust with an information security core competency that complements our fundamental business practices. We feel that our selection of Online Tech shows our commitment to safety and data security of the patients we advocate for.”
Midwest-based Online Tech is delivering its cloud and colocation hosting services from their network of five data centers.
“Advomas is doing a tremendous service to uninsured patients and we are thrilled to be able to help them carry out their mission,” said Jason Yaeger, Senior Director of Solutions Architecture, Online Tech. “Our Fortune 500 infrastructure will provide them with the data security and availability their patients demand.”
Online Tech has been independently audited with 100% compliance of the Health and Human Services HIPAA standards. Keeping with their culture of compliance, Online Tech also regularly reports against HIPAA, PCI DSS, SSAE 16/SOC 1, and SOC 2 safeguards. With annual audits, Online Tech would continually evaluate and strengthen safeguard measures and provide the complete documentation to its clients.
