ClearDATA Networks, Inc., healthcare cloud computing platform and service provider, has recently inked new partnership agreement with the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (National Council) to provide variety of HIPAA-compliant cloud computing and information security services.
This new partnership will allow National Council’s members − specialty healthcare organizations treating mental illness and addiction disorders, to take advantage of Cloud Computing Services include hosting of applications and data, offsite backup and storage, disaster recovery, and vendor neutral archiving (VNA) of PACS and other medical images.
”ClearDATA is pleased to work closely with the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare to help its members achieve cost savings and operational efficiency through cloud computing services,“ said David Bean, executive vice president of sales and marketing, ClearDATA Networks, Inc. ”The National Council is recognized throughout the country for its commitment and vision towards promoting proactive and holistic healthcare practices and we are honored to partner with them in their efforts.“
ClearDATA also helps organizations maintain regulatory compliance and reduce the chance of a security breach through HIPAA Security Risk Assessments, HIPAA Policies and Procedures Planning, and Remediation Assistance. Its services enable providers to fully automate and securely manage healthcare medical records, applications, IT infrastructure and digital storage.
Michael R. Lardiere, LCSW, Vice President, HIT and Strategic Development at the National Council said, “If behavioral health providers cannot adopt health information technology at a rate comparable with primary care facilities, hospitals, and physicians, it will soon become impossible to provide clinical care coordination for persons with mental and addiction disorders and to meet payer and service system demands in the changing healthcare marketplace. The National Council is committed to helping our member organizations remain on the cutting edge and we are pleased that ClearData will help bring important new technologies and services to our members.”
National Council members with the help from ClearData can deliver the highest quality care through services that reduce overall IT costs, improve productivity, and comply with privacy and security regulations.
