October 9, 2017, Ann Arbor, Mich. — Online Tech is pleased to continue serving its long standing partner ModuleMD, an innovator in the healthcare industry. ModuleMD provides cloud-based electronic health records, practice management and data interoperability solutions, as well as comprehensive medical billing and revenue management services to medical practices nationwide.
As a cloud-based and ONC certified EHR system, ModuleMD saves clients the cost and stress of securely housing healthcare data on premise at their practice locations. In 2011, ModuleMD sought to offer a more robust, HIPAA-secure data storage environment for its customers, and needed an IT partner with extensive knowledge of HIPAA and HITECH requirements surrounding data storage, retrieval, security, disaster recovery and redundancy, to meet the demands of their growing healthcare business. According to Chandil Pinchi, Chief Information Officer of ModuleMD, they wanted a hosting partner who could minimize downtime and ensure the data security of their ePHI and medical billing services. Pinchi addressed both needs with Online Tech’s hybrid cloud services.
“We needed a better service provider with more robust hosting capabilities and who was also HIPAA compliant,” Chandil Pinchi, Chief Information Officer of ModuleMD said. “We feel there is a lot of value that Online Tech provides and as an early adapter of healthcare data security and privacy compliance, their services ended up being a perfect fit for us.”
ModuleMD initially moved a single email server to Online Tech’s dedicated private cloud. Today their entire production environment is inside Online Tech’s virtual private cloud, with redundancy between their Mid-Michigan and Indianapolis data centers. Pinchi said he was pleased that Online Tech manages ModuleMD’s data storage environment for the company, which puts less stress on the internal IT team.
“The fact that Online Tech manages all our production infrastructure for us has helped big time,” Pinchi said. “Since we have moved everything over, our experience with Online Tech has been smooth.”
As ModuleMD’s business has continued to grow, reducing their data footprint has become a priority. Online Tech’s Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS), is uniquely positioned to solve this business challenge because it reduces a company’s storage footprint while helping them retrieve fresh database copies faster. DPaaS is one of many other fully managed offerings Online Tech provides, including managed public cloud with SprawlGuard™ protection, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), backup and cloud hosting services.
“I’m thrilled that Online Tech has been able to help ModuleMD achieve its mission of delivering efficient clinical, operational and financial performance of medical practices,” said Jason Yaeger, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Solutions. “I look forward to working with them for many years to come as they also explore what our data protection can do for them.”
Online Tech was the first managed data center operator in Michigan to successfully undergo and pass a HIPAA audit and has passed each independent annual audit since with 100 percent compliance. Keeping with their culture of compliance, Online Tech also regularly reports against PCI DSS, SSAE16/SOC 1, and SOC 2 safeguards.
Online Tech is the Midwest’s leader in secure, compliant hybrid cloud, colocation, disaster recovery and offsite backup services. The company’s network of seven data centers protect mission critical applications to ensure they are always available, secure and comply with government and industry regulations. Backed by independent HIPAA, PCI, SSAE 16, EU-US Privacy Shield and SOC 2 audits, Online Tech delivers exceptional experiences for companies in need of a strategic hosting partner.
