Online Tech Provides IT-as-a-Service for Advomas
Ann Arbor, Michigan, March 31, 2016 — Online Tech is pleased to announced that it has been selected as the cloud provider of choice for Advomas, a leader in the healthcare insurance industry. For 30 years, Advomas, a Michigan-based healthcare eligibility company, has helped providers secure health insurance coverage for uninsured patients.
In 2015, Advomas was looking for a partner with extensive knowledge of HITECH & HIPAA security standards. After vetting numerous data hosting partners to relocate its existing data center, Advomas selected Online Tech because of its reputation and expertise in healthcare information security. As Advomas continues to partner with providers and health plans on a national level, having the highest level of security around patient health information is at the top of its priority list.
“Our core business model is to help people,” said Jennifer Knight, president of Advomas. “Our clients entrust their patients to us to secure the highest source of payment on the patient’s behalf. We chose a partner with a strong reputation that we knew we could trust with an information security core competency that complements our fundamental business practices. We feel that our selection of Online Tech shows our commitment to safety and data security of the patients we advocate for.”
Advomas is moving its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud by the beginning of the third quarter of this year with redundancy locations in both Michigan and Indiana. This is one of many steps Advomas has completed to ensure compliance with state and federal laws surrounding patient health information and privacy.
“Advomas is doing a tremendous service to uninsured patients and we are thrilled to be able to help them carry out their mission,” said Jason Yaeger, Senior Director of Solutions Architecture. “Our Fortune 500™ infrastructure will provide them with the data security and availability their patients demand.”
