Green House Data eases pain of growing hospital infrastructure; partners with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
Online PR News – 05-December-2012 – Cheyenne, Wyoming – Green House Data, a VMware vCloud Powered partner and leader in infrastructure services, HIPAA compliant colocation, and cloud hosting services, today announced a partnership with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for colocation services at Green House Data’s Cheyenne facility.
“Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is an outstanding hospital organization that has set a high standard for improving patient care though the integration of technology,” said Shawn Mills, president, Green House Data. “We’re excited to provide a sustainable colocation solution for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center’s infrastructure that will be able to scale to the needs of a growing medical center.”
As healthcare adapts to a more digitized world, more and more patient records and information are converted to or created in digital formats. In 1996, Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which set standards in place for the security of Protected Health Information. Given the exponential increase in digital files, hospitals have looked to HIPAA compliant providers, like Green House Data, who have completed a rigorous validation process conducted by an independent auditing firm who issues a compliance check across 54 administrative, physical, and technical safeguard areas.
“Seconds matter to us, and Green House Data’s highly available and always-on infrastructure means our staff can access reliable medical data at a moment’s notice,” said Jody Siltzer, chief technology officer, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. “In addition, Green House Data’s HIPAA compliance ensures we never have to worry about the safety of our records. Our top priority when choosing our colocation provider were our patients, and Green House Data has helped us continue to provide the best possible care to our patients in Cheyenne and across the region.”
