Southwest Spine & Sports Moves EMR & IT Infrastructure to ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud Platform

Phoenix, AZ, September 6, 2012 – – ClearDATA Networks, Inc., the leading healthcare cloud computing platform and service provider, today announced that Southwest Spine & Sports (SWSS), a Scottsdale, Arizona-based healthcare provider, is operating virtually its entire IT infrastructure of servers, storage, and applications on the ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud Platform.  By moving to the ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud, SWSS reduced its Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for IT infrastructure, maintenance, and support by approximately 50% over a two year period.

SWSS originally contracted with ClearDATA to upgrade its EMR software Sage Intergy into the cloud in order to eliminate the need to purchase a new and costly server.  The cost savings, reliability, performance, security, and HIPAA regulatory compliance of the ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud Platform convinced SWSS to move virtually its entire IT infrastructure over as well. The entire migration and implementation was completed in 2-3 weeks.

“Our move to the ClearDATA Cloud has proven to be a solid business decision. It has helped from a technology and IT standpoint and solved many problems,” said Michael Wolff, M.D., founder and medical director of SWSS. “Everything runs better in the cloud than it did in our offices, and our systems and data is much more secure now that it is backed up offsite. ClearDATA has given us phenomenal service.  In the long run, the cost savings should be significant.”
