Company’s Secure IT Infrastructure Solutions Delivers the Cost Efficiencies, Reliability and Agility CareCloud Needs to Succeed in Competitive Market
MIAMI – September 13, 2011 — Terremark, a Verizon Company, is enabling CareCloud, a healthcare management solutions provider, to successfully grow its business and help modernize hundreds of health care practices across the United States via the cloud. Using a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, CareCloud is providing scalable solutions for common challenges such as practice management, electronic health records and revenue cycle management.
With Terremark’s innovative services, like Enterprise Cloud, CareCloud has grown from a start-up to an established leader in the healthcare cloud computing market through its delivery of highly secure, scalable and reliable web-based resources. By leveraging Terremark’s flexible Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution, CareCloud is able to tap into the same enterprise-grade expertise, security and availability used by large enterprises and government agencies around the world without the need to invest its early capital in building and maintaining a data center.
“Terremark’s portfolio of secure infrastructure solutions is a natural fit to integrate into our platform,” said Albert Santalo, president and CEO of CareCloud. “As a cloud-based company that serves a growing network of healthcare businesses and partners, we require the kind of agile IT infrastructure platform with a dedicated resource pool for computing and storage, built-in security and stringent service level agreement terms that the Terremark’s cloud computing infrastructure provides. Terremark also provides the scale and connectivity, through its colocation services, that will allow us to effectively meet the expected growth of the healthcare industry as more providers digitize their health records.”
Terremark offers customers a broad continuum of infrastructure services from cloud computing to colocation that are supported by its award-winning platform and enablement services allowing enterprises to move applications to the cloud as needed. Healthcare IT executives in particular are able to benefit from the Enterprise Cloud’s multi-user capacity, dedicated resource pool architecture and role-based security model, as well as private network connectivity and physical device integration.
“CareCloud needed a computing infrastructure that would support its continued expansion without sacrificing security and reliability of access to its platform,” said Chris Drumgoole, senior vice president of client services at Terremark. “The cost efficiencies and scalable nature of our cloud resources frees CareCloud to focus on delivering amazing apps to transform the status-quo of healthcare rather than spending precious time and money on building hosting infrastructure.”
