Blockchain Security & Compliance: Is This the Future?

The technology that pushed Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies into the public eye is a distributed ledger, better known as blockchain. This approach gives any entity that uses it an ongoing and dynamic transaction log. Over time, data is shared and compared to various other nodes, all of which continually have an up-to-date database copy. Auditing controls the adding of transactions to the database. By distributing transactions in this manner, you are able to remove single points of failure (SPOFs); prevent the controlling of the ledger from a single position; and verify all your transactions, with no need to utilize an independent service. All transactions are public, making it much less likely that the ledger is gamed to meet the needs of a nefarious party.

Why Do Medical Billing and Coding Companies Need HIPAA Hosting?

Medical billing providers and healthcare programmers cannot simply be satisfied with standard hosting, but instead should implement HIPAA-compliant hosting whenever sensitive health data is transferred server-side. This is because organizations like medical billing companies and healthcare programmers are business associates that have direct responsibility for compliance; because the expenses for breaches (which HIPAA hosting is intended to prevent) extend far beyond the fines; and because the definition of a breach is broader in recent years than it was prior to 2013.

What Can You Do with a VPS and Cloud Server?

Kent Roberts March 30, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Choosing the right direction with hosting gets a little complex. For instance, you might think that there are strong points to be made for using virtual private server (VPS) hosting just as there are for using cloud hosting. Actually, these two options are not contrary to one another but can be complementary: you can get a VPS within a cloud infrastructure. That cloud VPS hosting option means you can benefit from both of these incredibly popular and useful technological approaches for your backend.

How to Prevent a HIPAA Data Breach

In early October, Henry Ford Health System announced that it had been hacked and that the records of 18,470 patients had been stolen. On July 25-26, Arkansas Oral Facial Surgery Center was infiltrated by a virus that blocked the practice from being able to access images, files, and notes related to 128,000 patients. In September, Augusta University Medical Center announced that fewer than 1 percent of its patients’ records were stolen during a breach; however, this attack was the second phishing effort to work against the healthcare provider in just 5 months. These are just three of the most notable healthcare data breaches that occurred in 2017.

Why Do Biotech and Pharma Need So Much Computing Power in the Cloud?

For industries like biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, the true power of cloud computing is its ability to push the limits of computer processing to solve the greatest problems of today and tomorrow.

Predicting HIPAA Compliance Trends for 2018 and Beyond

Kent Roberts February 28, 2018 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

Health expenses add up to nearly one-fifth of the gross domestic product in the United States: at $3.2 trillion, this segment represents 18% of the GDP. The transition to digital environments could lead to total cost savings of $300 billion, particularly related to chronic conditions. By lowering cost, digitizing healthcare effectively makes it easier to deliver treatment, improve quality-of-life, and save lives. However, healthcare technology is also tricky because of the parameters of healthcare law, especially the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).

Is the Cloud a Good Fit to Host Your Augmented Reality Project?

Adnan Raja February 16, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

When you hear ‘augmented reality,’ you might initially think about the first-down marker that overlays the field on any televised football game. The markers have become so ubiquitous that you almost forget the players can’t see them when they’re diving for the extra yardage.

If you’re under 25, ‘augmented reality’ might conjure memories of Pokemon Go instead.

But let’s take augmented reality beyond the realm of masses converging on shopping malls and college campuses in search of non-existent pocket monsters, beyond the overlays on a football field, beyond the technology giants like Apple and Google who are bringing augmented reality to our daily lives, and consider the niche players. Plenty of industries, like construction, have the vision to layer an augmented world on top of our own to give architects, engineers and customers a look at what could be before the job is built.

How to Choose the Best Cloud Hosting Platform for Your Analytics Software

Adnan Raja February 12, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

You could ask 50 different CEOs why they are moving their businesses to the cloud and get 50 different answers. But one of the biggest reasons we’re seeing so much migration to the cloud is because of the exponential growth in data being gathered, stored and analyzed across the economy as a whole.

Most businesses already have complex, dedicated analytic software in place well before they move to the cloud. This analytic software assists employees in making decisions on marketing, advertising, customer retention, supply chains, packing/shipping, warehouse management, delivery routes, human resources and more.
