ClearDATA houses apps, protects patient data

ClearDATA, providers of secure cloud platforms, has announced its Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution to assist health IT and DevOps departments in securely and effectively deploying individual applications on a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPAA)-compliant cloud.

Security of applications is a top priority for hospitals to ensure the safety of patient information. With ClearDATA, working with Amazon ECS, the secure container management resource houses these applications in a HIPAA-compliant environment for advanced testing and running. This environment allows for users to test out applications before distributing them to patients, ensuring the functionality and effectiveness of each app.

"Containers offer developers and IT administrators the ability to focus on writing code and accelerating their healthcare business—not maintaining a secure, perfectly consistent infrastructure across environments," said Darin Brannan, CEO, ClearDATA. "This innovative offering affirms our leadership in healthcare security, compliance and managed services, while our collaboration with AWS enables healthcare organizations to quickly deploy services and apps in a healthcare-fortified AWS environment. We have effectively eliminated a major barrier to healthcare innovation."
