- ClearDATA announced its new Premier Consulting Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). This status is granted because of the expertise ClearDATA has demonstrated working with AWS.
“We have made significant advancements to help healthcare customers optimize their cloud needs, scale with agility, and minimize the risk of breach, all of which protects our customers’ resources and reputations,” ClearDATA CTO Matt Ferrari said in a statement. “Technology moves fast, and so do we. To ensure we improve the value of patient care, we are investing heavily in our secure, compliant healthcare cloud platform, and deploying the most innovative automated safeguards, solutions and services available for the healthcare industry today.”
ClearDATA has been working with AWS to achieve partnerships over the past year. By working closely with Amazon, ClearDATA customers can have an easier time integrating their IT infrastructure with AWS.
Back in October, ClearDATA announced its achievement of Amazon Web Services (AWS) DevOps Competency status. This designation indicates that payers and providers can use ClearDATA to integrate into onto the cloud with automated safeguards and configuration management tools on AWS.
The AWS Competency Program identifies technology partners to take advantage of the services offered on AWS. For the healthcare space, ClearDATA can help integrate healthcare organizations onto AWS while remaining in compliance with strict healthcare regulations like HIPAA and GDPR.
“We are thrilled to add the AWS DevOps Competency status to our growing list of AWS competencies,” said Matt Ferrari, ClearDATA’s Chief Technology Officer. “This competency demonstrates ClearDATA’s technical expertise and ability to provide the best automated safeguards, specifically built for healthcare, that protect our customers by helping them remain compliant and secure throughout the lifecycle of their app.”
“Enterprise healthcare organizations are in need of DevOps transformation to drive innovation and optimization to their healthcare application,” Ferrari continued. “ClearDATA helps customers running on AWS achieve their technology goals for years and it’s exciting to formalize it with the achievement of the AWS DevOps Competency status.”
In addition to DevOps Competency status, ClearDATA has also achieved the AWS Healthcare Competency and AWS Life Sciences Competency status.
This isn’t ClearDATA’s first partnership or collaboration with a major cloud vendor. This past July, ClearDATA announced its partnership with Google Cloud. The partnership uses the Google Cloud Platform to deliver ClearDATA’s healthcare compliance capabilities to digital tools.
The focus of this partnership is on analytics and giving organizations access to their analytics tools via Google Cloud.
“Our partnership with Google Cloud gives those wanting to innovate on Google Cloud Platform the chance to do so in a secure and compliant environment without fear of compromising sensitive health data, ultimately increasing their opportunities to advance healthcare and improve patient outcomes,” ClearDATA CEO Darin Brannan said in a statement.
This collaboration will eventually give healthcare developers access to the Google Kubernetes Engine, which is an open source container system. This will help organizations automate application deployment and make applications more scalable.
Back in August ClearDATA collaborated with major cloud vendors again by announcing the expansion of its HITRUST Common Security Framework (CFS) Version 9.1 for its mulitcloud solutions including Amazon (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
The expanded CSF 9.1 covers 36 privacy and security regulations including FedRAMP, NIST, ISO and the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
ClearDATA expanded its health data security to encompass Microsoft Azure, GCP, and AWS. This expanded certification gives healthcare organizations deploying health IT applications in multicloud environments on GCP, Microsoft Azure, and AWS the confidence to work among these cloud service providers.
Large cloud vendors like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft are beginning to invest more in the healthcare industry as they see the industry’s growing interest and investment in digital tools.
