ePCR Company Moves IT Hosting and Disaster Recovery to Online Tech
Online PR News – 23-September-2010 – – AccuMedWeb, a provider of ePCR (Electronic Patient Care Reporting) software, has utilized Online Tech’s managed servers and off-site disaster recovery capabilities for improved availability and increased HIPAA compliant security.
AccuMedWeb’s ePCR flagship software, eMedicReports, allows EMTs and paramedics to electronically record patient information. With customers dispatched all hours of the day, AccuMedWeb’s applications must be always available with no downtime. According to John Masters, AccuMedWeb CIO, ePCR requires 100% availability from its data centers – 24x7 and 365 days a year. By using Online Tech’s fully managed VMware hosting, AccuMedWeb can take advantage of Online Tech’s high availability power, network and server architecture which delivers a very high level of uptime. In addition, Online Tech delivers the required physical and network security required for HIPAA compliant hosting in their SAS 70 type II audited data center. Due to the nature of the data AccuMedWeb collects, they must be HIPAA compliant.
“We didn’t want to worry about the basics of managing a data center like cooling, internet connection, security, etc. By outsourcing our data center to Online Tech, we can focus on our business core projects like software development,” says Masters.
Since moving to Online Tech’s fully managed servers, AccuMedWeb was able to design an off-site IT disaster recovery system on a separate power grid from their primary production services. AccuMedWeb houses their production data in Mid-Michigan, with their IT Disaster Recovery site in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
“We realize how important server availability is for companies like AccMedWeb who support their customers all hours of the day. We see it as our mission to assure that our client’s managed servers are always on, always online and always safe,” says Mike Klein, President of Online Tech.
