ANN ARBOR, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Otava,
a leader in secure, compliant hybrid cloud services, is pleased to
announce that a national healthcare organization is leveraging its HIPPA
backup and data
recovery services for improved performance, reliability and service
“Our mission is to provide medical services to families in a safe and
low-cost manner. As such, it is important that we have a secure but
seamless environment for our staff to access our EMR/EHR system,” said
the director of information technology and facilities/HIPPA security
officer for the organization. “We partnered with Otava for their
compliant cloud solutions that enable us to do just that. Their
engineers helped us assess our requirements and come up with a plan that
solved our backup and restore challenges and have improved our
performance and uptime and reduced the number of user tickets.”
To protect the healthcare organization’s extensive EMR/EHR data spanning
its operations across two states, Otava delivered its cloud backup
service, which hosts multiple servers in its Indiana
data center. The state-of-the-art 44,000-square-foot facility is
designed to provide ideal production, data protection and disaster
recovery. Otava’s in-depth, defensive
security and high-availability infrastructure keeps the
organization’s data fully encrypted and protected. In the event of a
disaster, they now have the option to restore data and applications on a
fully managed basis.
Otava is the country’s first HIPPA compliant hosting provider and can
support any infrastructure, including VMware, Hyper-V and physical
servers, so customers can recover from offsite or onsite backup and
ensure data availability with confidence. The security of electronic
protected health information (ePHI) is fully managed by Otava, ensuring
both compliance and security.
“By partnering with Otava, we are saving on all the costs associated
with purchasing, housing, maintaining and replacing hardware. This
combined with the confidence that our ePHI is secure, compliant, and
available makes the overall solution extremely valuable,” the
organization’s HIPPA security officer continued.
Otava and the organization are currently working together to deploy
as a Service solution, which is designed to further improve end user
satisfaction by allowing the customer to deploy and manage service
delivery with virtual desktops and applications in the cloud.
“Our experience, expertise and services are a great fit for customers
like this one who need to protect sensitive, confidential data,” said
Brad Cheedle, chief executive officer for Otava. “They literally can’t
afford downtime, power outages or other unplanned incidents, so we are
pleased to be able to provide our backup, restore and cloud services
that will keep them running so they can focus on patient care.”

compliance helps ensure customer data is safe no matter where it lives.
