WellTrackONE seeks cloud partner who can provide support for HIPAA compliance
As a company dedicated to managing wellness programs, WellTrackONE deals with large quantities of protected health information on a daily basis. While the company wanted to take advantage of the cost savings and efficiency of managed cloud, WellTrackONE had stringent requirements in order to maintain HIPAA compliance.
The team at WellTrackONE preferred not to share virtual servers and was in search of a partner who could provide a hybrid environment, heavy SQL server support and solid off-site disaster recovery. Further, it was on the lookout for controls and procedures that would enable the company to maintain HIPAA compliance, which meant that signing a business associate agreement was critical.
A partnership with Flexential is formed, investor buy-in secured
After evaluating more than 20 providers, WellTrackONE determined that Flexential was one of few that could accommodate and manage cloud servers with storage at a reasonable price point and would sign an accompanying BAA as required for HIPAA compliance.
Flexential also went the extra mile to help WellTrackONE secure investor buy-in for its cloud hosting solution. Its account executive, security team and solution engineers met directly with key WellTrackONE investors, compliance consultants and stakeholders to explain the Flexential solution and demonstrate how it would help WellTrackONE meet or exceed all of its HIPAA compliance needs.
Over $150k in future savings and liberty to focus on business
With a tailored Flexential solution designed and implemented, WellTrackONE estimates it will save more than $150,000 a year in overhead costs by maintaining a lean team as Flexential manages maintenance and security of its environment. With guaranteed 100 percent uptime, WellTrackONE’s internal team is free to focus on its core products rather than its IT infrastructure.
Flexential has also created a document highlighting the features of WellTrackONE’s environment, which the risk management company now uses to bring security confidence to clients and prospects, ensuring it has a leg up on its competitors. WellTrackONE’s chosen Flexential services enable HIPAA compliance overall, backed by an official BAA.
