Healthcare SaaS Provider Selects Independently HIPAA Audited Cloud Provider
Ann Arbor, Michigan – February 14, 2012 – KMJ announced today that it chose Online Tech’s fully managed and HIPAA compliant cloud to host their medical Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) application.
KMJ’s eDoclist, their patient sign-off and handoff application, is used by hospitalists, residents, and physician practice groups to avoid communication errors including duplication and omission. The system has been implemented throughout the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Mich. and has won great accolades. According to Dr. Michael Lazar at Henry Ford Health System, “The sign-out list has made patient transition easier, safer and more efficient. Electronic medical sign-out should be mandatory for all health care personnel.”
KMJ Health Services needed a flexible, scalable, and fully HIPAA compliant hosting solution for eDoclist. The challenge for health IT application providers is facilitating company growth without compromising the privacy, security, and availability of patient health information (PHI).
“Patient privacy and 100% HIPAA compliance are paramount for us, so we prioritized finding a hosting company that would share their independent HIPAA audit report with us and sign a Business Associate Agreement,” said Dr. Jeff Jennings, President of KMJ Health Solutions.
Kristen Woldin, Operations Manager at KMJ added, “We also needed HIPAA compliant servers at a price that would support a growing business. Online Tech’s HIPAA cloud package was perfect for us.”
Online Tech’s HIPAA compliant hosting provides the physical, environmental, network and infrastructure security to meet HIPAA compliance standards by making sure PHI is always available and secure. All of Online Tech’s data centers, products and services passed a complete, independent HIPAA audit by a Certified HIPAA Security Specialist (CHSS). Online Tech was found to be 100% compliant across all citations of the HITECH act and the 136 audited components.
“There’s a lot at stake for protecting patient health information. We weren’t comfortable self-assessing our state of HIPAA compliance. Investing in independent audits gives us and our client’s confidence that we understand our responsibilities under the HITECH Act as Business Associates,” said April Sage, Online Tech’s Director of Healthcare Vertical. “We’re excited to support KMJ Health Solution’s growth as innovators at the forefront of health care technology.”
