(Gawkwire) – Secure hosting provider Layered Tech announced today that Remedy Health Media (Remedy) has selected Layered Tech to meet Remedy’s application hosting needs. As a leading provider of personalized online health information and applications for patients and caregivers, Remedy required a hosting service that meets the strict data security standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Remedy found a solution in Layered Tech, a managed hosting and cloud provider that specializes in compliance management for HIPAA and other stringent IT security regulations.
Remedy publishes a wide range of health and wellness content through online properties such as Health Central and Berkeley Wellness and point of care publications such as Remedy’s Healthy Living and Diabetes Focus. Remedy’s cutting edge digital advertising products enable marketers to target by condition and prescription in a HIPAA-compliant way in addition to standard demographic data. The company is working with Layered Tech to ensure that its applications and IT infrastructure comply with HIPAA data security regulations. For example, Remedy’s Intelecare application suite delivers reminders to patients to keep them adherent to prescribed medication and treatment regimens such as prescription refills, checking vital signs and appointments with healthcare providers. Remedy delivers approximately 100 thousand reminders monthly through email and mobile applications.
“Layered Tech’s mature cloud platform, dedication to compliance and commitment to the security of our users’ data stood out among the vendors we considered,” said Jerry Thomas, Chief Information Security Officer, Remedy Health Media LLC.
Remedy is using Layered Tech’s “Layer 4: Compliance Management” service, which features the industry’s only Compliance Guarantee. This service level guarantees clients that their hosted systems will pass every security audit from an accredited auditor. Along with the HIPAA compliant service that Remedy is utilizing, Layered Tech offers comparable services for PCI-DSS compliance and FISMA compliance.
“We are excited to have been selected as the trusted secure IaaS cloud partner for the Remedy Health Media product offerings, and look forward to partnering with them to grow their business,” said Layered Tech Regional Sales Manager Jeff Chester. “We have extensive experience in providing highly secure cloud and hosting solutions supporting compliant needs, and see the partnership as a perfect match.”
