April 13, 2016

UTAH – April 13th 2016ViaWest, a leading provider of Hybrid IT Solutions and Colocation in North America, announced that Ogden Clinic, has selected ViaWest as its Hybrid IT Solutions provider. By leveraging the security, reliability and scalability that ViaWest datacenters provide, the physician-owned, multispecialty group practice is able to focus technical resources on growth and competitive advantage as opposed to operating physical datacenter facilities.
“Ogden Clinic differentiates itself in an increasingly competitive market through quality care and exceptional providers. IT needs to ensure that our systems are highly available, redundant for business continuity reasons, and secure in order to adhere to HIPAA regulations,” explained Brett Colvin, Director of Information Technology at Ogden Clinic. “After an extensive evaluation of service providers that could help us offer high system availability, maintain compliance, and implement effective disaster recovery plans, we selected ViaWest because it was by far the best fit for our needs.”

Ogden Clinic will be collocating its equipment in two of ViaWest’s datacenters. The medical group will also be taking advantage of ViaWest’s HIPAA Compliant Colocation bundle, which helps healthcare organizations achieve compliance with HIPAA regulations through built-in compliance measures as well as updated breach policies and response plans. In addition, ViaWest provides 24x7 on-site expert engineers and service staff that set its award-winning datacenters apart.

“Ogden Clinic’s IT infrastructure plays a crucial role in its ability to maintain a strong reputation as Northern Utah’s largest and most respected ambulatory medical care group, and we are honored that they selected us as their trusted partner to help,” said Alex Gerrard, regional vice president of sales, ViaWest. “By taking advantage of our secure data centers with 100 percent uptime and HIPAA compliance expertise, Ogden Clinic has more resources to grow its practice and serve more of the Utah community.”
